Very easy to understand and both have words and pictures to give it a more clearer view and also make one to know that despite any supernatural power u still need to behave normal in the society.

Great review! I agree with your rating 100%!! Ive seen many kids struggle with reading, mainly because they see it as a chore. Books like these really open up the skill and make it more accessible, and fun, to a wider group.

Sometimes our superheroes are those who help us with our everyday activities; we may need that help more than having someone who flies. It is a good lesson for kids to learn. Thanks for the review.

I love the cover illustration. It reminds me of the graphic chapter books my grandson reads. (Captain Underpants, etc. I love the idea that these books are available for such a young target audience, as an alternate to the children's books already available.

After reading the review this is one book I'd love to add to my shelf for my boys to read. Parenting is one phase in life that has no manual and when a child grows up, basically or naturally the parent is the superhero. When now a child can be able to relate and know that superheroes and normal people and more so from the book, a normal child who does normal things, it can build their self esteem and maybe believe that someday they too can be superheroes. My boys love PJ masks the animation series. This book is one they can read and enjoy and also relate to the heroes they see while watching their cartoons. I'll recommend this book to mothers for their children especially boys.

Can wait to finish reading it.

The book Toni the Super Hero by R.D. Base is for children who are level 1 through 3. If parents have introduced reading to their child they will be able to understand based on age and level appropriateness.

The author presented the main character as an action figure with magic powers to direct them and to place an image for them so when they are faced with a task or moment in their lives this will serve as an example. He showed compassion for his classmates, nutrition awareness, being prepared before class by reading and household chores. Believe it; this really helps a child when building themselves in life.

The book had sentences worded for each reading level. This helps a child to understand with other teaching tactics. When working with children in reading: colors, shapes, letters, and behavior modeling really works.

I noticed that in the book another way to help children with learning is to show an example and allow the student to show how he understands by drawing or telling.

The illustrator Debbie J. Hefke captured a world of wonder for the child to enter. High points. The author did a good job laying out the objective of the book. Overall, a worthy children's book. I rate 4 1/2 stars *

Toni The Superhero by R. D Base.
First allow me to congratulate the author. She has done a recommendable job,writing this book. I like the fact that her creativity is vividly seen in the concept. For this book to sound interesting and fun for young toddlers who are starting to read on their own, the author chose to use short and clear sentences, simple words and more so included pictures that would capture children's attention. I like the character and the roles he has played. They indeed teach good morals to young children. So I give this book 4 stars out of 4.

A book about a relatable superhero who engages in everyday activities and chores sounds like a good choice for visiting youngsters. It's important to know something about the content of a book directed toward children before purchasing. Thanks for your good review! :)

This sounds like a good children's book. When I get my check I will have to get it for my daughter. I've not read it yet, but I have read several reviews on it and they say it's good for young children.

With all the illustrations and humanizing Tony, it is a book quite unique I must say, and kids will definitely learn a lot from it.
