Superhero by Don M. Winn can be used to teach children that heroism means being there for someone who needs your help; that anyone can be a hero, just by doing small things; and that everyone can look for ways to be a hero to someone else. This book is written as a tribute to the fathers who are everyday heroes for their kids.
Superhero is the story of a young boy with big dreams and a mask and cape. He dreams every night that he is an amazing hero. He can conquer any villain and the whole city relies on him for help. But when he meets up with two nightmarish foes, he knows that even a superhero needs to have someone he can call on for help. This story is about how a dad can be the real hero to his son. It also helps open discussions about what makes a real hero and how everyone can be a hero to someone else.
