Do Super Heroes Have Teddy Bears?Featured
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!
The question and answer format of the book is a strong rationale for writing in rhyming couplets, but I really wish picture book writers would just write good, strong musical prose. The couplets in this book are not as tortured as many others out there, but they rarely scan, and trying to make them scan ties my tongue and brain in knots. It’s worth pointing out, however, that the many many hours I spend reading books aloud have made me somewhat more exacting than another reader might be.
The illustrations are colorful and energetic. The knotted-blanket wearing boy with his almost electric-socket shock of red hair is especially fun to look at. There’s lots of detail to explore in the illustrations, making this a good choice to read aloud, taking time to explore each page, and tell the many stories hidden there.
Fun read-aloud choice
