My Superhero 我的超级英雄 by Chris Owen
Translated to mandarin, this book has all the right ingredients to make it irresistible to its young target audience: it’s visually striking with bold, colorful, endearing illustrations. The rhymed text is perfect for reading aloud.
Superheroes have a lot of super attributes—amazing strength, incredible speed, and sensational outfits, for starters—but this charming book focuses on a less celebrated super skill, something closer to home for young readers. A numbat youth compares superheroes found in comic books and cartoons with a different kind of superhero: his dad. He comes to realize that being a dad is far more important than any super powers typical of heroes in modern fiction.
This delightful picture book introduces impressive natural abilities of 12 different mask-wearing superdad animals from around the world. Rhyming couplets, onomatopoeias, and alliterations engage readers while lift-the-flaps reveal more information and add mystery.
