  1. Another great giveaway Heather. My oldest daughter is a voracious reader, she reads classics and more modern books but I still think she would greatly love this book, and I love for her to read good literature, and good books with positive role models!

  2. My daughter would love this, it looks great and we love books!

  3. These books are not just perfect for my daughter but for my three boys also. We need better female heroes and role models for our girls and boys, especially to see them in a new light. I love this idea and I cannot wait to see these books!

  4. Would be awesome to win these. I am homeschooling my youngest son and daughter these would be great to read together.

  5. These look like helpful to generate interest in classic literature.

  6. I want this for my kids!

  7. I’d love to share this with my daughter – we struggle with classics sometimes and I think this would help her get over the hump and fall in love with them as I have.

  8. With five daughters it would be a great resource.

  9. My daughter took a while to get into reading but I have a feeling that books with inspiring heroines might draw her into reading more and more. This would be brilliant for her.

  10. I would love this for my children, there is a great message and they would be great gifts. Thank you for the giveaway!

  11. I would love to have the opportunity to share with my son about real role models, not what he sees on tv and in movies. How to be a Hero for boys sounds like a perfect way to share this with him and a love for the classics!

  12. I would love to win a copy. I have been looking for something that will encourage my daughter to look to positive role models and pic her interest in reading the classics.

  13. We do a lot of reading and it would great to read something encouraging to my daughter!

  14. I’m excited to see a book that encourages girls to be strong on their own. Too many books have boys as the main character, which can leave girls feeling powerless.

  15. My son is getting into reading chapter books and the Hero book sounds like a great read for him!

  16. I think this could be a great inspiration for my almost 9 year old daughter who seems to think she needs to be just like her 3 older brothers to be anything. Seeing female heroines could be just what she needs.
