Synopsis from Amazon:
Follow along as two ragtag, everyday super heroes don capes to play in the mud, save their stuffed animals from certain peril, conquer the vegetables at dinner, and overcome darkness at night.Are super heroes always brave and daring?We’re brave and bold and kind and caring.After five successful books in the “Princesses” series, Carmela LaVigna Coyle now turns her attention to an all new childhood fantasy in this wonderful new story about imagination and play. Every little boy and girl has a super hero somewhere inside just waiting to come out. Tie on your cape (blankies recommended) and join the adventure.P.S. Do super heroes have teddy bears? Why, yes, they do!
My Thoughts:
     This is one of the most fabulous, be who you are because you are awesome, books I have ever read! That's a mouthful, but you know what I mean. This book encapsulates the meaning of being true to yourself, because yourself is pretty cool. The illustrations and the text are incredibly funny and I can see this book easily becoming a cult classic.
      The book follows two children throughout their day and asks the reader, what does a true hero do? From brushing their teeth to eating vegetables, true super heroes have no problems with these tasks because that's what brave kids do! The very last page is perhaps my favorite, because it tells the reader to Be Your Own idea which I absolutely love.
       The illustrations are whimsical and fit the story well. The colors are bold and really appeal to the reader. I loved this book more than I can express and can see all sorts of children loving it. It will appeal to all age ranges but probably would be best for Kindergarten-2nd Grade, but that's just my opinion. I can also see this book being good for a read aloud as the pictures add to the story, but the words and the sentiments are the basis. Great book you should order immediately! You're going to love it!
