    Little e is sure he could be a hero. He even has the cape! But at school, he’s so quiet, he mostly goes unnoticed.

    The Mighty Silent e!

    Little e has always known he was important. After all, he comes from a long line of E’s. In his heart, he can tell he has the power to be a hero—he even has a blue cape! He just needs the chance to prove himself. But at school, Little e is so quiet, the other little letters rarely pay him any attention.

    That is, until the day Little e doesn’t show up to class. At first, the other letters don’t even notice he’s gone. But then c, a, and k try to form a word for dessert, and they can’t make it work. The whole class is suddenly in an uproar. Without their silent friend, what are they going to do? Will Little e finally get his chance to come to the rescue?

    While cleverly teaching spelling, grammar, and vowel rules, The Mighty Silent e also presents an important message: You don’t have to be loud to be a hero—you just have to be yourself. The narrative celebrates identity, diversity, and contributions from everyone. Written by Kimberlee Gard, illustrated by Sandie Sonke, and published by Familius.
