Do you know any kid heroes?

I work at a Provo-based, children’s educational company called Imagine Learning, and we’re on the lookout for local heroes—specifically kids.

We would like to create two original books to be included in our online book series, read by children across the world, that are focused on heroic kids between the ages of 8 to 14. We’re looking for young people who have done something courageous, shown compassion, or overcome difficulties or disabilities. Each book would include the young person’s real identity, real name, family pictures, and quotes. We would want non-exclusive rights to publish the child’s story as written by our in-house writers.

We know Utah is full of young heroes, and we just need to get the word out. If you know someone who qualifies as a young hero and who might be interested in having his or her story inspire other children, let me know or email us at as soon as possible.

Spread the word!!

I am pretty sure my little brother Joshua is exactly who you are looking for. He was adopted from Russia at the age of 3 1/2 and has had to overcome more obstacles than I'll mention on this page - but he has the most amazing attitude and light about him, and although he has such a struggle on so many levels of his own he is always looking to help other people. I definitely will write up a good draft and send it to you.
