I have been really liking the new children's books I have been sent recently from Sterling Children's Books, as they really have an importance message/lesson for kids, and tell in a way that it is easy to understand and pick up on, even with the youngest of listeners.  

In this new picture book by Shelly Becker, kids learn about managing their emotions and overcoming adversity in a humorous way.  One things that both girls and boy like nowadays are superheroes, so this book will be a hit with kids of all ages.  And, once you sit down and start reading it with your child, they can't help but laugh at the story and the illustrations that bring the story to life.  

My girls and I have read this book a handful of times since receiving last week, and each and every time, we walk away with watery eyes, as we can't stop laughing at the story.  I highly recommend this book, and will definitely be keeping this author, who is knew to us, on our radar, so that I can pick up future titles to share with my girls.

About this Book:

"What do young superheroes do when they’ve blundered and bungled? They don’t get mad; they get SMART! This fun follow-up to Even Superheroes Have Bad Days teaches kids another humorous lesson in overcoming adversity.

Even superheroes sometimes slip up and err. And when that happens, do they say, “It’s not FAIR?” or give up in despair? NO! “Ashamed Superheroes who goofed up somehow . . . First STOP . . . then CONSIDER what’s best to do now.”  Whether they’ve nabbed the wrong guy by mistake or bashed into a planet while zooming through space, all superheroes ‘fess up their mess-up, get on with their day, and keep on saving the world in the most super way!  EVEN SUPERHEROES MAKE MISTAKES by Shelly Becker is super fun!"
