Overview

"Heroes Every Child Should Know" includes twenty biographies, written for children and adapted from different sources. Each biography is action-filled, easy to read, and the type of tale that teenagers as well as younger children will enjoy reading. In his introduction, author H. W. Mabie discusses why people need heroes, what kind of people are heroes, how stories about heroes developed, what a myth is, why hero tales filed with giants and other unusual kinds of beings, and why courage, strength, and achievement are so often extolled. Mabie tells his readers that heroes can have faults. All of the twenty biographies that Mabie chose are of men. Some are from myths, the Bible, and history. They are about Perseus, Hercules, Daniel, David, St. George, King Arthur, Sir Galahad, Siegfried, Roland, King Alfred, The Cid, Robin Hood, Richard the Lion-Hearted, Saint Louis, William Tell, Robert Bruce, George Washington, Robert E. Lee, Abraham Lincoln, and Father Damien. Readers may argue that Mabie missed some important men and lots of important women, but they will most likely not disagree that the excerpts that he chose to insert into his collection are interesting and informative.
