Every child dreams of being a superhero. They might spend days watching cartoons about superheroes and pretend that they were one too. They would make up games where someone dons a cape and runs around the room screaming something like “To infinity and beyond!” Other kids would read about superheroes and in their dreams at night they would really be one.
Toni the Superhero is a book targeted towards very young children now being introduced to the world of reading. This book is geared towards children between the ages of 3 to 5 years old. It is hoped that the book will help develop their young minds and instil a love for reading.
I rate this book at 4 out of 4 stars. The pictures are brightly coloured and visually appealing. I can see a young child being entranced by the images. The words are easy and repetitive. This helps the young child to become more familiar with the words such as “like” and “to.” The sentence also corresponds to the pictures. For example, the sentence “Toni likes to play” is accompanied by an image of Toni playing with his friends.
I love that the book is simple in all aspects. It is easy to read and follow along with the words and pictures. I also love the message the book portrays. Superheroes are figures that everyone looks up to. They are the ones with all kinds of expectations, such as saving the world or rescuing the damsel in distress. Toni is a superhero with all these amazing powers. However, he is also a kid and as a kid he does all the things you would expect. He draws, he reads, he plays with his friends and he performs all his chores. It shows that even superheroes must do their normal activities. Sometimes being a good kid is being the superhero.
This book is great for use by early childhood care institutions and parents who want to encourage their child to read. Not only is it great for reading but it shows a young child what being a good kid looks like. Toni the Superhero can show a child when you do everything with a smile and a good heart; that is the best feeling in the world. The book makes a great teaching tool that can be built upon, not just the reading part but the morals and values part. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to help their kids learn.
