Be a Book Hero for 6-8 year olds

Have you ever heard somebody call someone else “My Hero?”  There are all kinds of heroes.  Some heroes are super, and some are everyday kind.  Most importantly, it’s someone who does something nice and good for other people.  What do you think makes someone a hero?

Watch video, download books to read together, and explore things to do with BookSpring.

Read Together at Home

Here are some books to read together!  You can download and save them and keep them forever, to read again and again.



Things to Do Together

  • Learn more with our partner Austin PBS: Play the Xavier Riddle and The Secret Museum Games
  • Talk about what it means to be a hero – there are many people around the world who would be considered heroes. What special powers do they have? A hero can be anyone that does something they have a fear of but is brave enough to still do something. Heroes overcome obstacles – what are some of the obstacles that you have overcome?
  • Create your OWN superhero! Draw a picture of your superhero and write about them. What is their name? What are their superpowers? Where do they live? Are they young or old? Add as many details as you can think of!
  • Make a list of action words that superheroes do, and then practice reading them together as a family.

Ways to Move Together

  1. Use the action words you listed and act them out! Example: jump, twist, lunge, crawl etc.
