HERO'S Story Time: "Helping Every child Reach Optimum Success"

Hero's Story Time is a compilation of books that were specifically chosen to teach character skills that cultivate health relationships with peer, family, and community. These skills or assets are part of the 40 Developmental Assets from the Search Institute. The Developmental Assets® are 40 research-based, positive experiences and qualities that influence young people’s development, helping them become caring, responsible, and productive adults. We call these assets “Superpowers.”


Hero's Story Time is brought to you by a collaborative effort of the Family Service Association of Howard County and Purdue Extension. Video readings of the books are linked within the descriptions below. Each book has a coordinating single page resource that offers discussion questions and ideas on how families can extend the story to support their children in developing social emotional skills leading towards mastering each of the 8 focus assets.
