Ivan Becomes a Hero by Linda Rossetti Brocato is an uplifting story with a heartfelt message for children and adults alike.
Ivan is a curious baby giraffe who decides to venture outside his usual surroundings. On his exploration Ivan meets other animals, but instead of being friendly they make fun of Ivan for not being like them. Ivan is heartbroken and asks his mom why he can't be like the other animals. She reminds Ivan that he is "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Psalm 139:14) and that God made him just as he is for a reason. Will Ivan discover God's special purpose for him?
Illustrator Donna Brooks shows off her incredible talent through the brilliant colors and exquisite detail. I fell in love with Ivan the minute I saw him on the cover.
Ivan Becomes a Hero instills the powerful lesson in young readers that we are all special in our own way and each of us is here for a purpose.
Don't forget to look for the hidden hearts throughout the story.
