Reviews - What do customers think about I'd Be Your Hero: A Royal Tale Of Godly Character?
A great story. Sep 12, 2005
I bought this book for my infant son, but my daughters wanted me to read it to them and they loved it. It's a great story to teach the character traits of Godly people and the illustrations are top notch. I recommend any parent of a 3-7 year old boy to consider this book. The scripture verses are a nice added benefit to back up the traits that are given reenforcing that God commands us to have those traits.
5 Stars for Christian picture book! Aug 29, 2005
"I'd Be Your Hero" is beautifully illustrated. Not only that, it uses a little boys promises to his Mom, along with Bible verses, to teach Godly character. Wonderful!
Kristin Kirby-Austin, TX Aug 10, 2005
This book truly is superb, and captured my son's heart in a multitude of ways. He wants me read it every day! The story-line is interesting, and the pictures detailed and vibrant. The author-Kathryn O'Brien has a real talent.
Another Treasure Mar 19, 2005
This much anticipated 2nd title for O'Brien is also full of truly solid encouragement of character for every little hero ready to defend his castle. Garland's genius is remarkable! On the second page, his awesome illustration is SOOO designed for little boys! The only drawback of this book is that it includes the father quite a bit, where I'd Be Your Princess left the mother out. I was expecting this book to be the ideal title for single mothers, but I'm afraid it must be designed with a whole family unit in mind. I wholeheartedly recommended it anyhow, because God is the Father to the fatherless, and the relationship between the boy and his father can easily be examined that way! Good for mothers and sons of all ages.
