Think for a moment: who are your favorite heroines and heroes? What are their main qualities?

 

I'm partial to Princess Leia, Katniss Everdeen, Samwise Gamgee, and Hermione Granger because I love epic fantasy and sci fi tales. Each character has an inner strength I admire. 

 

There are many resilient characters out there who can teach children about the power of perseverance and learning from one’s mistakes. Recently, Edutopia published a list of young adult novels that are especially skilled at showing growth mindset in the main characters.
