Author(s): Jamila Rizvi; Peter Cheong (Illustrator)
An insightful, topical and practical picture book story about a family coping with the changes brought about by Covid 19, from the much-loved Jamila Rizvi. Inspired by her own child's experience, Jamila wrote I'm a Hero Too to help children make sense of the changes to their world and to help them feel empowered and reassured about how they can be a hero at their house too!
A story for our time right now, but also for all times, as children will always need reassurance about change.
