Book Review - Do Super Heroes have Teddy Bears ?
by Carmela LaVigna Coyle
Taylor Trade Publishing, due May 2012
Super heroes - brave, strong, invincible and with amazing powers..... every child dreams of and plays games of being a super hero.
What sorts of things can super heroes do that children cannot, and vice versa ?
Are there any things a super hero is afraid of ? Do super heroes themselves have secret vulnerabilities?
This absolutely charming and delightful children's picture book for pre-schoolers explores these issues, with the activities of children "dressed up" as heroes on the left hand pages, and pictures of children doing everyday things on the right hand pages, accompanied by a sweet and gentle commentary. Central to the activities is a teddy bear, who at the end exhorts the reader to "Be your own hero!".
A truly lovely little book !
