We were thrilled to be sent a copy of Even Super Heroes Have Bad Days, we saw Chris Evans (Captain America) read the story on Cbeebies Bed Time. What a treat for mums and kids alike.
The book itself was well received by my super hero loving Little Man. It’s written by Shelly Becker and illustrated by Eda Kaban.
When Superheroes don’t get their way, when they’re sad, when they’re mad, when they’ve had a bad day…they COULD super-tantrum, they COULD but they DON’T, because REAL Superheroes just WOULDN’T they WON’T! All kids have trouble getting a grip on their emotions, sometimes even young superheroes! But what do they do when they’re having a bad day? Colourful action-packed illustrations and a dynamite rhyming text reveal the many ways superheroes (and ordinary children, too) can resist the super-temptation to cause a scene when they’re sad, mad, frustrated, lonely, or afraid. From burning off steam on a bike or a hike, to helping others, this energetic picture book has plenty of fun ideas to help kids cope when they re feeling overwhelmed.
The book teaches children that it’s okay if they frown, sigh, or cry they just need to acknowledge their emotions and wait for them to get better.
This is a rhyming book which is always a big hit, and along with the fun colourful illustrations it’s a great read which kids will love.
We give this book a big thumbs up!
You can find this and many other fabulous books at the GMC Group website
