Toni The Superhero
Written by: R.D. Base

This story is about an African American little boy named, Toni. The little boy is described as a superhero because of the activities he partakes in. He is outgoing, friendly, and takes care of his body through healthy eating. He assists his mother with household chores. As well as, play outdoors with his friends. The reader will be able to associate with how supportive and caring Toni is to family and pals.

It is a great beginner book for children who are just learning to read. The words are labeled in the fry word section or sight words section for children between the ages of 4-7 years old. Making it ideal for any teacher who works in grades pre-k through first, to help students connect to reading. The length of the book is perfect for reading time in school. As well as, wonderful for bedtime stories. Thus, helping the reader to adjust to learning on their own. This book will build confidence. While growing their imagination to connect with the character.

The main character is easy to identify with. The book has no spelling errors, punctuation, or sentence structure mistakes. The words are boldly written and use a big font. Therefore, allowing the reader to effortlessly recognize words with ease. The illustration in the book is very colorful and well-drawn. The artistic work speaks for itself. Pictures in the book are distinguished and beautiful.

Diversity is a word that can describe this story. There are children from all backgrounds including the main character. This is pleasing because it allows the reader to see themselves in this story just having fun with friends and family.

Overall, this story was great. I rate this book a 4 out of 4 stars. It displayed an assortment of choices that make the main character, Toni, a superhero. The sentence structure was terrific for the word level this age group of children can read on. The words are easy to recognize and boldly written. The illustrations jump off the page with its colorfulness. The pictures go effortlessly with the words. I recommend it for children between the age 4-7 years old. It shows the character as a fun, sociable, responsible, helpful, loving, and charismatic African American little boy. This book is relatable and allows the reader to connect with the character. As well as, build on the imagination about what they can do to have the same skills as Toni.
