While every new Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum episode is filled with a new adventure, it also gives young ones an important lesson to take away and knowledge of important figures from pivotal moments in history. Xavier Riddle and the Secret Museum is all about encouraging children to dream big, use their imagination and be heroes themselves.
Learning about the real life heroes featured in the Xavier Riddle series is an engaging activity that kids can do from home, which teaches them about key historical figures, important life-lessons and how they can be heroes in their regular life.
We wanted to take a moment to highlight some of our favorite little heroes who were inspired by Xavier, Yadina and Brad.
Our first little hero is Amelia! Amelia is one of our little heroes who learnt from heroes such as Rosa Parks, John Lewis and Harriet Tubman and asked an important question – why would anyone treat someone different because they are a different color?”
Heroes like Rosa Parks always stood up for what was right and believed that everyone should be treated fairly. She was a smart, fearless woman who paved the way for other women to fight for what is right. At 7-years-old, Amelia is learning that she follows in the footsteps of strong women before her and continues to stand up for what she believes in.
Xavier Riddle allows all little kids to be a hero in an imaginative way that encourages kids to continue the efforts of the heroes before them! Like Xavier, Yadina and Brad, your little one can adventure in the secrets of your own home, discover new things and learn new lessons.
The next little hero is Kate! Kate and her mom Maria spent the day learning all about monarchs in their backyard. They even taught us that a group of butterflies is called a kaleidoscope, flutter, rabble and a swarm. Kate named her butterflies after each of the adventurers – Xavier, Yadina and Brad.
Xavier, Yadina and Brad LOVE butterflies. In the episode ‘I am Rachel Carson’, the adventurers go on a quest to learn how they can protect all the living things found in the world! Rachel Carson was an American marine biologist, author and conservationist who was credited for advancing the global environmental movement. She inspired Brad to figure out his way to help the butterflies, just like Kate protected her friends Xavier, Yadina and Brad the monarchs!
The last little hero we are featuring this week is Ruby! She submitted her Martin Luther King Jr. school project inspired by the Ordinary People Change the World ‘I am Martin Luther King Jr’ books! Ruby is a hero for sharing the experiences of one of our historical figures and teaching the rest of her class.
Did you know that Martin Luther King Jr. spoke about his dream of a kinder future and bravely led the way toward racial equality in America? With this month being Black History Month, we continue to honor heroes who paved the way for us all to live fairly.
We want to see from more of our Little Heroes!
