John Henry Hammerin’ Hero

Type Non-fiction

By Stephanie True Peters/ Illustrated by Nelson Evergreen

This novel was overall excellent. John Henry Hammerin’ Hero is about a unique baby born with a hammer in his hand. He grew up to be a big, strong, and also reliable man. John Henry was a hero; he saved a boat from being crushed to death from the choppy waters. He even saved miners from being trapped underground. This story is really for anyone big or small, it’s about courage, love, and hard work. I would recommend this novel to anyone.

Classroom extension:

Students can write about their favorite hero and what it means to be a hero.
Students can write to soldiers deployed who are our true heroes and let them know how much we appreciate their dedication to our freedom.

In this book John Henry gets born with a hammer in his hands and he can talk without getting taught. He loves hammering nails while he gets older. He doesn't want to stop, but soon this is the end of his life. He gets a challenge to make a tunnel through a mountain. He knows it is dangerous. He says that if he is faster against the machine the guy will disappear. John Henry comes out first but falls to his knees. ( )
