Miss Heather would like to recommend these super hero books!
The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man by Michael Chabon
Recommended for ages 3 & up
With all the flash and excitement of any super hero story, The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man by Michael Chabon delivers a special internal message about the power of self control, providing the perfect opportunity for discussion. Awesome Man needs a peaceful and quiet place to think when he needs to calm down. In this story, he realizes he needs energy and after 'a thermovulcanized protein-delivery orb' he gets right back to chasing The Flaming Eyeball. Besides the importance of self control, positivity rules in this book: positronic rays shooting out from eyeballs and a trademark Awesome Power Grip which allows him to hug runaway freight trains and mutant talking Jell-O to get them back in their place!
