Bedtime for BatmanBedtime for Batman

This is a cute bedtime story for those superhero fans. It shows the boy and batman going about their routine and doing sort of the same things. The boy puts on his pajamas, and Batman puts on his costume. The boy puts away his toys. Batman puts away the villains. The little boy looks at the clock to see it is bedtime, Batman sees the bat signal and so on. I think you get the idea here. As another reviewer mentioned, a companion book about batgirl or wonder woman would be great to show that little girls dream about being super heroes as well. The illustrations are large, colourful and detailed. The little boy is quite cute, pretending he is batman. This could easily become a favourite bedtime story. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is a companion book to Bedtime For Batman, only this one is about morning routines. It will become a favourite of superhero fans. The difference in this book is that there are also female superheros so that girls will be able to identify with the story unlike the last one. This book shows a boy and Superman going about their routine and doing sort of the same things. Superman leaps tall buildings, the little boy leaps out of bed, Superman shows his secret uniform and the little boy gets dressed and so on. I think you get the idea here. At one point in the story his sister with her supergirl outfit helps him to pack his backpack and talks about Superman’s friends sometimes help him out. A really cute idea. The illustrations are large, colourful and detailed. The little boy is quite cute, pretending he is Superman. This could easily become a favourite story and help little ones to get ready quicker in the morning. I recommend this book to all family libraries. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

After reading Bedtime for Batman I asked for a companion book for little girls who want to be superheroes and here it is. It is time for school and this little girl is ready to be a superhero. I love that dad takes her in the morning and picks her up at night. Throughout the day she uses her superpowers to make it a positive one. Her powers included being prepared, kind, brave, honest and strong. She demonstrates these skills while participating in normal school activities. The story shows Wonder Woman fighting against monsters with a sentence beginning on her page and ending on the page with the little girl solving a problem of working on a situation. The illustrations are large, colourful and detailed. The children are all quite cute, and portray various ethnicities. A really cute book that could become a little girl’s favourite. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

This is another cute bedtime story for those superhero fans, especially the girls. This is the fourth DC superhero book by Michael Dahl and they all are great reads. Each book features a different Superhero as well as main character. They are also inclusive of all ethnicities. This one shows a young girl mimicking the actions of Supergirl. It also shows her getting ready for bed after a day of saving the world. I like that it stresses the importance of rest to rejuvenate the body for the next day’s adventures. The illustrations are large, colourful and detailed. The split page showing Supergirl and the young girl show how anyone can be a superhero. This could easily become a favourite story anytime of day but especially at bedtime. A great book for any and all family libraries with children or grandchildren. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.
