Using our books
American Hero Books were created for infant-preschool age children. The images and text depict Service Members doing things common to a regular day, AND the specialty formatting allows pictures to be inserted over those printed in the books so the child can “see” their own parent at work. The books are constructed from sturdy laminated board so that kids can hold, play with, and interact with them safely, and each page has an acetate sheet over the pictures so pictures stay safe from even too much kissing!
Though created for young children our books were designed to grow with the child. Below are some book features that you can use to help your children get the most out of American Hero Books no matter what their ages:
