In Part 2 of our Hero series, we talk with Maria Nelson about the importance of heroes in the lives of children. From stories of fictional heroes or biographies of great men and women in history, we dive into the (sometimes murky) water of learning from those who have gone before us. We also discuss character building books and stories as a part of a living education.
