Superheroes


IHelp your child discover her “super” qualities with the following activities and books.

Family Activities To Do Together

Turn your child into a superhero. Pretending to have super powers is fun, empowering and a way children can establish control over their fears. Support this process by filling a laundry basket or other container with old towels for capes, rain boots and other inexpensive props that children can use to create and explore "super" scenarios.

Superheroes are special kinds of helpers. Explain that when your child is a helper, she is a superhero too. Talk with her about ways to be helpful around the house. She may enjoy sorting laundry, setting the table, helping to wash the car or other household chores.

Explain that the best superheroes are those that are kind to others. Remind your child about this when issues of kindness come up in daily activities. For example, when your child wants to play with a toy another child is using, point out that a superhero would not grab. Instead heroes take turns, make a trade or ask for it nicely.

My Teacher Can Teach Anyone

My Teacher Can Teach... Anyone!

by W. Nikola-Lisa. illus. by Felipe Galindo.

A young boy tells readers just how great his teacher really is. She "is so good, she can teach... anyone!" She could teach "an Astronaut how to float in space" and more. She could teach something to someone from professions A-Z, and that makes this young narrator very happy because "this year... she is teaching ME!"
