Do Super Heroes Have Teddy Bears? by Carmela LaVigna Coyle with illustrations by Mike Gordon
There's such a lovely thread running through this book about how it doesn't take a super hero to be a hero who acts in a super way. There are many different ways that kids can make a difference, and there many different ways that imagination can be used in positive ways. I loved the page where the two children are sitting in a tree with a toy shark staring up at them, mouth open. It's such a lovely image and one that's so easily identifiable from my own childhood (I never sat in a tree and I never had a toy shark...but the premise is the same). This is my first time reading a book by Carmela LaVigna Coyle or seeing Mike Gordon's illustration, but I know it won't be the last time.
Check out Carmela LaVigna Coyle's website and also Mike Gordon's website.
I received an advance review copy from NetGalley courtesy of Rowman & Littlefield.
