S is for "Speedy Boy"...

Who is seriously stoked about his new SuperHero book! My 4 year old son has been running around the house likey Speedy Boy (who comes from another book) since I brought this home. The full color pages are beautiful and bright, there are some great, new, large vocabulary words that are easy for the kids to understand because of the context the pictures give the reader. I think another reviewer mentioned the appropriate amount of grossness (very midly and tastefully depicted), which is right on, because you need to have someone passing gas, someone vomitting and someone with his underwear on over his clothes, to make a really successful book for little boys right? There are some great female characters too. There is no violence. It is an absolutely fantastic book. Some pages are single pages for each hero and a couple get a double page spread. When I was searching for a book about Superheros for my young son, aside from the fact that I was actually looking for something with well-known characters, this nailed what I wanted exactly. Something very young, bright, and educational. I cannot say enough about it. I would have bought this for him as early as 3 years and I know we will read it for several years to come. Actually, my 2 year old son is already saying some of the names with us as we read too! If you are like me, I usually buy paperback books unless they are tried and true must have children's library titles, award winners, or books I have already seen and read in person to know I want to spend the money on the hard covers. I wish I had just gotten the hard cover version of this. I would also suggest, if you have a Superhero freak on your hands, that you buy the Chicken Socks (by Klutz) Super Hero Starter Kit so that your son can use the included cape, masks, stickers and wristbands to transform hinself into his own Super Hero, as well as a not very well known but absoutely adorable book "I'm Going To Be the Best Superhero Ever" Which is actually my son's very favorite book!

Superhero ABC

I have a five year old who was stuggling with some of his letters and now he is relating them to the characters in this book.I highly recommend and give this book five stars.Well earned!!!!

SuperHero ABC is a hit

As a grandmother of three pre-school age grandsons, I found SuperHero ABC to be a hit. The colorful illustrations and wonderful alliterations hold the attention and interest of young children. Everytime I read the book to my grandsons, we find new things to learn and explore. The boys love pointing out the various letter words as we go thru the alphabet.It is wonderful that the alphabet can become SuperHeroes to children as they learn to read and understand language skills. I would recommend this for all young children and the parents and grandparents who read to them.


We had the pleasure of meeting Bob McLeod this weekend and purchased his new book, SUPERHERO ABC. My son, who is not quite 2 1/2, immediately responded to the characters! When we arrived back to our home he quickly chimed in with,"Mommy, hero book ... PLEASE". Mr. Mcleod was gracious enough to sign this one for my son so we may have to buy another book for my Alexander to carry around. Again, let me remind you HE'S 2!!! I also think that the style is a great throw back to the classic greatness of the comic books of the golden age. Comics that were made for KIDS. Remember Moms and Dads,kids who read comic books ...READ. And I can tell you from experience that this comic book-style childrens book is an engaging way to get your young one excited about reading:o) A++ for this book!

Fun for kids and grownups

In a world of pre-fab education for kids, SuperHero ABC stands out as an artful, eye-popping, color-wowing extravaganza that kids and parents will love. Dozens of original new "superheroes" were created to showcase the letters of the alphabet. The figures are funny, gross, impressive, shapely, wacky... The puns flow freely. Be ready for silly and superlative surprises...
