I love the Superkid book on so many levels. Firstly and probably most importantly the kids all love it. I have caught several of my darlings curled up reading the book in their own words. It is a rhyming book that although I mucked up the words first time (tired mum syndrome) sounded great all the other times. There are a couple of words like churning and plight that mean that is appeals to older children as well as preschoolers.

The illustrations are simple enough to capture a three year olds attention yet I found so many hidden details each time I read it. This makes it a great book for picture discussion which is brilliant for a child's language development. I showed this book to a friend who is a qualified early childhood teacher and she agreed it was a fabulous book that she would love to buy. She spotted lots of things in the illustrations that I hadn't discovered yet. My friend and I were discussing this as the children found more and more things the sharks were doing.

The idea is very simple. There is a child in your class that becomes Superkid and saves you from bullies, pirates and even plates of broccoli. The one that appealed to children and me the most was the power to clean away all the toys instantly. Now when it is tidy up time we call on Superkid to help us and the chore is done quickly without nagging. It would be great it Superkid could really help us.

Of all the books in the package that arrived this was the one my son was drawn to the most. The cover is so bright and colourful and the image of SuperKid really pops out at you from the cover page. The illustrations in the story are just the same they are very eye catching and bright and really caught my sons interest.

The story is simple and fun and easy to read with SuperKid saving the day by eating the broccoli and mushy peas, and tidying rooms. I think the book has a nice message about the Superhero that is in everyone and finishes by saying to keep an eye out there could be a SuperKid sitting right next to you in school.

I love the rhyming style of the story which always makes my son enjoy a story more when it has a nice rhyme and rhythm. This has quickly become one of my sons favourite books and he had it read to him several times already. I can almost picture him when he is a bit older pretending that he is the SuperKid although I don't know if he would save his sister from a plate of broccoli.
