Superheroes run abundant in my house. We know all about Batman, Superman, Spider-Man, and the list goes on and on, and on and on, well you get the idea. My kid is a superhero fanatic. Now, when I introduced him to this book, Sweet Dreams, SuperGirl by Michael Dahl, I wasn’t sure if he would like it since it’s a “girl” superhero, but he actually took a quick licking to it, and made me read it several times in a row.
The way that I can tell if a book for kids is good, is how many times I have to read it. If I hear “okay, let’s not read that again.” then chances are the book just isn’t that entertaining. Well, when we read this I heard, “Let’s read it one more time.” about 5 times in a row. This book is awesome, it shows SuperGirl kicking butt throughout the day, and a little girl getting ready for bedtime at night.
It’s just such a sweet story about how a little girl can visualize herself as a superhero, and how confidence, bravery, and imagination are powerful. The pictures in this book are quite comic book like, and really interesting. There is a contrast between the SuperGirl pictures and the little girls pictures, it’s awesome. We had a lot of fun reading this book, and I’m sure we will read it much much more. Your little ones will probably get a kick out of it too. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. Thank you, Netgalley, for the book!
