  2. I'm excited about my new book and would love to have you review it. Check it out on my website
    www.christymonson.com

    50 Real Heroes for Boys teaches young boys everywhere that being a man only requires being yourself―but your best self. Bright, colorful portraits by over a dozen international artists accompany true stories of men who knew that character―things like integrity, kindness, empathy, courage, respect for women, and more―mixed with their own unique gifts―art, athletics, creativity, dance, music, curiosity, and more―could make the world a better place.

    Readers will find Jackie Robinson, who used courage to break barriers in sports; Jim Henson, who used humor to uplift the lives of millions; Dav Pilkey, who used perseverance to push through dyslexia and become one of the world's most successful children's book authors; and many more!

    The book also includes dozens of stories of women like Marie Curie and Jane Goodall, because boys can have women heroes too!

    Written by marriage and family therapist Christy Monson, 50 Real Heroes for Boys reminds boys everywhere what true masculinity is all about.

    1. Thank you for reaching out and congrats on your book! Though it sounds super (and it's available on Amazon!) my blog isn't a book review blog - it's more of a tech & how-to blog - I'm also a Middle Grade focused educator. But good luck to you! ~Gwyneth
