Professional reviews

"[Editors' Note: The following is a combined review of HEROES FOR MY DAUGHTER and HEROES FOR MY SON.]--The author of suspense novels, TV shows, and comic books offers two collections of heroes to guide the lives of boys (52 profiles) and girls (55 profiles). The snapshots give a thumbnail of each person and what traits or accomplishments made each one great. Though the profiles are brief enough to not challenge young attention spans, they offer enough information to inspire some curiosity. Throughout this production, Meltzer sounds like heÕs talking to children, and there are brief segments when his own children respond to his questions, all of which may work for the targeted audience.
