Item Description...
After talking about heroes and martyrs at school, a young girl gets a first-hand look at heroism when her father and several others protect their neighbor from a group of racists.

Publishers Description
Author Virginia Kroll wrote Especially Heroes based on a series of incidents, all true, that had an enormous impact on her when she was a child and that continues to affect her to this day. In the story, a young girl learns firsthand that ideals must be lived out, not just talked about, and that living out ideals sometimes involves facing danger. Set in the early 1960s, Especially Heroes gives an authentic glimpse of some of the challenges of race relations during that era of the civil rights movement. Virginia Kroll's powerful childhood memories are brought to life by illustrator Tim Ladwig's unique perspective on an ordinary neighborhood of that time and the heroism of everyday people who responded with courage and caring when confronted with acts of hatred.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Based on a series of true incidents  Jun 10, 2003
Set in the 1960s and based on a series of true incidents, Especially Heroes by Virginia Kroll is a meaningful picture book about the challenges of race relations and the pursuit for true equality, as well as the courage of ordinary people that helped bring a change in attitudes and practices from coast to coast. Warmly illustrated in full color by Tim Ladwig which fully complement an engaging text written at an intermediate level for young people just about ready to progress from picturebooks to children's novels, Especially Heroes is a very highly recommended addition to school and community library collections.
