I love discovering fabulous products for my grandchildren and readers. I was notified this morning about a book series about five African American Super Heroes. The super heroes are called the Fearless Five. What a great concept. As an African American, I have a difficult time finding toys and other items that focus on African American children. It's so disappointing, especially in 2012. I'm sure my African American readers can relate, so I thought I would share this find.
My grandson is a big fan of Super Heroes. He loves Spiderman and the Incredible Hulk, so I jumped at the opportunity to purchase this series of books. The series is about five characters: Bender, Blaze, Tank, Element and Phenom. They are all adorable. The concept is to raise the self-esteem of African American children. According to experts, a child's self image is developed by the age of seven. As with any parent, I want my grandchildren to grow up with a positive self-image. I want them to believe they can accomplish anything with hard work.
The books send messages to the children on self esteem, team work, education, and morals to name a few. Since I just ordered the books, I can't give an honest opinion on the messages, but I am looking forward to doing a review and hopefully a give away.
The books can only be ordered on the Fearless Five site at this time. I love the fact that you can check out through Paypal, it's quick and easy. I'm hoping this series will be a huge hit for our African American children. I would love to see this concept come out on DVD too.
This series would make a great birthday or Christmas gift. Please go to the Fearless Five site and order a set today!
