This gloriously illustrated keepsake book will help young modern rebels find their inner hero. With quotes and stories from everyone from Abraham Lincoln to JK Rowling, Take A Stand is a fantastic collection of inspiration and activities.

Readers can find out what heroes like Stephen Hawking, Martin Luther King Jr. and Muhammad Ali would do in a range of challenging everyday situations featuring peer pressure, bullying, status anxiety, schoolwork and more.

With life stories, quotes and advice from emancipated heroes, this is a liberating book to empower readers everywhere.

Review new 2021

Take a Stand! is a book that you fill with all your hopes, dreams, wishes, day to day life, etc. Alongside this information that you input are lots of quotes and information from some of the greatest heroes of all time.

The book begins with a section called ‘What Makes Me, Me!’. After you have input your name, age, etc you then get to choose some words that you relate to. Throughout the book, there are sections for school, friends, reading, music, online and even a section about your dreams – not the ones you have of a night-time but your dreams for your life. What you would like to achieve in one year or five years time. Plus plenty more sections too.

As well as places to write, draw and stick your information, there are sections which are all about the ‘greatest heroes’. From Juliane Koepcke to J K Rowling, Maya Angelou to Mary Seacole and even Abraham Lincoln and Stephan Hawking get a mention.

There are also questions and answers called ‘What Would a Hero Do?’ where a scenario has been made up – one that is very realistic – and the author has answered the question using what would one of the heroes in the book do.

The book is filled with lots of information and is beautiful both on the inside and out. It is a definite keepsake and would make a beautiful present for a teenager. My tiny little grumble is that sometimes the heroes in the book were used more than once when I am pretty certain that there were plenty more heroes that could have been used.
