How to turn your kid into a Hero
MyBook Heroes offers customized children’s books, where the books will always star your child as the main character. This is made possible by a web platform which allows users to input a child’s name and choose an avatar, preview, and then a physical copy will be delivered for you and your little one to experience rich adventures. MyΒook Heroes opened their doors two weeks ago and have already sold hundreds of books, receiving great reviews and feedback.
MyBook Heroes focuses on communicating life skills and simple philosophies to children in vivid settings. Lessons such as leadership, perseverance, and courage are taught in easy to grasp concepts. Children are able to visualize themselves overcoming obstacles and embracing new ideas. The books help to build their confidence and facilitate learning.
The founders believe that children might close their ears to advice, but open their eyes to examples. The life lessons presented in their personalized book will resonate with them, as the examples come in fun rhymes and colourful scenarios.
To help your little hero on their journey through the book, they will be accompanied by fantastic friends with their own unique personalities. The illustrations are vibrant, charming, and will leave your kids with a sense of wonder.
‘Only children believe they are capable of everything, so to us it is obvious that if we place them in the story and we add the lesson, we should have the best possible results in learning’ said D. Howard, illustrator at MyBook Heroes.
MyBook Heroes has claimed first place awards already in multiple innovation competitions. They joined IDEAcy the accelerator / incubator early 2017. IDEAcy is supported by the Bank of Cyprus.
The team is now actively looking for investors in order to expand internationally. If you are interested for further information regarding becoming a shareholder, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Reading to kids at a young age offers positive neurological, educational, psychological, social and linguistic benefits. These benefits translate to academic success, love for learning and personal development. It also enhances development of social skills, self-awareness and boosted self-esteem.
The founders feel that children constantly compare themselves to unrealistic super heroes, which is not helping in trusting their own abilities. MyBook Heroes believes that by starring your child as the main character, the connection with the book is improved and the lessons are easier to adopt.
