Introduce your 3rd graders to both modern and historical heroes and community helpers such as soldiers, construction workers, librarians, postmen, and missionaries in Heroes and Helpers. This reader, complete with 19 stories and 7 poems, will thrill your child with exciting stories such as C.W. Anderson ‘s “Blaze and the Mountain Lion,” E.B. White’s “In the Drain” from Stuart Little, and Robert Louis Stevenson’s “The Land of Story Books.” Your child will also enjoy learning about a myriad of famous people including Gladys Aylward, Glenn Cunningham, Lydia Darrah, Cincinnatus, and Paul Revere. “Dig Deeper” sections challenge your student’s ability to recognize literary concepts such as setting, symbolism, climax, while “Words to Watch For,” “Think About It,” and “What Do You Think?” sections develop his thinking skills and help him to apply the truths he has learned to real-life situations. Grade 3.
