10 Hidden Heroes

Mark K. Shriver, illus. by Laura Watson. Loyola, $14.99 (24p) ISBN 978-0-8294-5269-3
Bestselling author Shriver features everyday heroes in this countdown seek-and-find book. Spare rhymes describe actions of the average hero (“Eight Hidden Heroes find a way to shine/ working hard to save the Earth/ one good deed at a time”), inviting readers to look closely at Watson’s busy pages, which are filled with bright, inclusive illustrations. The prompts are deliberately vague; with no professions named upfront (back matter includes a helpful key), readers can see for themselves the different ways in which people work with others. A pigtailed, sight-impaired child gives Braille lessons on a park bench; an adult construction worker and child build homes for people in need; a wheelchair-using child participates in a charity marathon. An educational, interactive read. Ages 3–8. (Mar.)
