Kid Lit: Be a Star, Wonder Woman!

I received this book for free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 



Be a Star, Wonder Woman! by Michael Dahl

To be published on August 1, 2017.

Goodreads Summary:
As a new day dawns, a young girl faces the ultimate challenge: school! Follow along as she demonstrates her greatest superpower (sharing), overcomes her worst fear (the playground), and conquers her archenemy (the spelling test).With courage, kindness, and other heroic traits of DC Comics' Wonder Woman, she'll turn a difficult school day into an AMAZING ADVENTURE! Along with Omar Lozano's bright, bold illustrations, bestselling author Michael Dahl (Bedtime for Batman and Good Morning, Superman) delivers an imaginative read-aloud for your littlest super heroes.

My Thoughts:
This book is cute. Like Dahl's other superhero books, it compares a little girl to Wonder Woman. As she prepares for her day at school and faces challenges on the playground and with her friends, the little girl must be a star. I'd say this book is geared towards a slightly older audience than Bedtime for Batman and Good Morning, Superman because it's focused on good behavior and being a leader and not just the bedtime or morning routines.

As with the other books in this "series," I enjoyed the side-by-side comparisons of a normal girl and the superhero, Wonder Woman. The comic book style of the Wonder Woman pages was great too. Comic book loving parents will enjoy sharing this book with their children, ages 3-6.

My Rating: 4 stars

  1. Sounds like a good book for the 1st grader here. Do you think its something beginning reader can read by themselves? or with help?

    1. Yes, it's pretty simple text, so she can probably read it alone or with help for sure.
