The book sounds like a fun read. I like the bright colors on the cover. Thank you for confirming that the bright colors continue throughout the book. I like the idea of a child sized Superhero who teaches the importance of helping others.

This may seem like an odd question, but what is the size of the book? Would a three year old be able to handle it by themselves while they were walking?

I remember that my children loved carrying their favorite books around the house. Actually, they're grown now and they still carry books around the house. We all do.

A young superhero who contributes both in society and within his household seems like a great character to inspire young children. It’s always great for kids to get an early start on learning how to read, and this sounds like a great book to help with that. I do agree that some hidden words would be a good idea to make the story more interactive.

I like the idea of having the book be interactive, in would definitely add value to the book. Having the child guess the last word would definitely keep his/her easily distracted mind focused.

I like that the superhero, Toni, does things in a self-motivated way, like rescuing cats, sweeping around the house and generally helping around the house. He eats healthy and swimming is his choice of exercise. Sounds like just an inspiring book for youngsters. Nice review.

Thanks for the review and the interesting suggestions as well! This book is going to be an awesome read for the would-be-readers. The children can easily identify with Toni and at the same time can look up to him. I myself plan on reading and reviewing it.

What makes "Toni The Superhero" different from the list of Superhero that already exist?
He's considered the cream of all superhero. He is a young boy with super natural powers.
Also, he is involve in other activities on the human level.

There is not many emphasis placed on magical powers. But emphasis is placed on daily domestic duties at home, interacting with kids in reading, sports and eating right.

I like the fact that this book focused on Toni’s more normal activities rather than any kind of super heroics because it makes the book relatable to children who also enjoy doing many activities like playing with their friends or cleaning around the house.

Excellent review! It looks like this is a valuable book for small children who just started reading. The colorful illustrations surely engage young readers, and also, make easy to understand the meaning. As Toni not merely carries out his extraordinary tasks but also helps in the household chores and protects innocent animal like a cat is surely imitable for other children to show sympathy for other beings. I congratulate the author for this great children book.

This book sounds really cute and great for little kids just learning to read. I don't have any kids myself right now, but I plan to someday and will definitely keep this book on my list of books to teach them to read with. Thank you for the helpful review.

I loved your review. You gave some wonderful suggestions to the author. I also noticed the sentence that did not quite fit the pattern and I think the book would be much more fun for kids if it were interactive. The illustrations are indeed eye-catching and somehow compensate for the rather random selection of the activities in which Tony is involved.
