Good Morning, Superman! by Michael Dahl
To be published on March 1, 2017.
Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s the . . . SUN! When morning comes, a young boy must prepare for his day, faster than a speeding bullet. Follow along as he leaps tall buildings (jumps out of bed) in a single bound, dons his heroic uniform (his clothes), and faces his greatest weakness (Kryptonite-colored toothpaste). Then it’s up, up, and away to daycare! The perfect companion to the bestselling author Michael Dahl's BEDTIME FOR BATMAN, this official DC Comics picture book will have Superman fans young and old delighting in their morning routines. Includes a morning routine checklist.
The second book in the "series" after Bedtime for Batman, this book draws parallels between a young boy and Superman as they get ready to face their days. I really appreciated that the family in this story is African American. I love reading normal stories with diverse characters. I also loved that the boy's toothpaste is his Kryptonite.
This book is perfect for super hero fans because it does assume some familiarity with Superman. It would work well with kids ages 3-5. There's even a morning checklist on the last page, so your own little super hero can follow to steps when getting ready for his/her day.
