Review: What an important story to read, it was told in a nice easy way for children to understand.
Uniqueness something everyone has, the superheroes club use this to help all the other kids at school, to help them make friends and not be so lonely. They knew each child had a great skill or talent and let them show it to everyone. It’s so sweet and wonderful to read a book that will help guide children into the kindness path.
The drawings in this book were so vibrant and beautiful, I loved that certain words were highlighted the most important words that the author wanted to make sure children reading understood.
I really enjoyed this sweet quick read, it’s got a lot to offer for children and is pretty as well. If you are looking for books on kindness this one is certainly one I would recommend.
