Superheroes Don’t Get Scared – a gorgeous gift for little heroes (Trigger Publishing, £6.99)
I love the positivity and fun of this book an insightful, funny, rhyming tale which encourages children to face their fears and find their inner superpowers. Illustrated by Claire Elsom.
An important story told in rhyme, it’s action-packed too. Superheroes Don’t Get Scared… Or Do They? For me it’s the “or do they” that’s important here. With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding Covid-19 has left many children feeling anxious and overwhelmed.
This book explains that even the strongest, boldest and bravest hero can sometimes feel afraid, and that’s perfectly fine, there’s superhero in all of us.
