Get to Know the Everyday Heroes in Your Hometown! Hello! Hometown Heroes is a charming and fun read-along board book that introduces children to the people who make our neighborhoods and lives better.
Follow along as a little boy, his mother, and his dog walk through town, meeting and greeting everyday heroes along the way.
With gently rhyming text and engaging illustrations, Hello! Hometown Heroes introduces young readers to the people in our neighborhoods who make our lives safer, cleaner, and better. From the mail carrier and sanitation workers to firefighters, doctors, nurses, and more, the text succinctly describes what each hero does, and then provides children the opportunity to say “hello” to them. The final spread shows the whole town with each hero doing what they do . . . along with a simple act of heroism the child performs—proving that all you need to be an everyday hero is a little bit of kindness and thoughtfulness.
