Superhero Instruction Manual
If there’s a kid who’s been wondering how they can become a superhero, the book for them has arrived! Introducing the Superhero Instruction Manual! It has all the tips to help any child transform from a regular kid into a superhero.
This cute picture book tells a story with the text as well as with the illustrations. The text is a flashy, action-packed guide about what any kid needs to become a superhero. The book will lead kids through choosing a superhero name, selecting a sidekick, making a uniform and more! But while all of this is happening, the illustrations tell a story of a big brother who wants to be a superhero while his little sister wants to tag along. Either oblivious or unwilling to play along, the boy goes on his superhero journey by himself until the very end. Then, the little sister manages to prove her worth and the brother finally accepts her as a worthy partner.
In addition to the flashy allure of becoming a superhero, this book also manages to subtly sneak in a lesson on finding the strengths of others. Even if one of those others happens to be a pesky little sibling.
