Editorial Reviews

Review

...[A] good character-building book to help children begin the process of discerning right from wrong; good from bad; strength from weakness. (Erica's Muse blog)

Gordon’s gently goofy cartoons are always fun, portraying an idyllic existence that includes lots of outdoor adventures, an impressive array of pretend play props, an improbably expressive teddy bear, and a pet dog with superhero aspirations of his own. (Publishers Weekly)

From making blanket capes to cardboard spaceships, this book is a nostalgic romp through a child’s imagination. Funny and charming, with a great message about being an everyday hero, it will surely win the hearts of youngsters and their adult counterparts. Bright, interesting, and comical illustrations with whimsical touches highlight the text well. (School Library Journal)

Coyle's rhyming couplets keep the question-and-answer narrative rhythm rolling, and Gordon's cute cartoon-style kids keep up the appeal with lots of visual KAPOW! (BooksForKidsBlog)

Little boys and girls that are gobbling up my Batman and Spider-Man (yes, girls read comic books, too) will love this title, and I think their parents will find a warm, comfortable book to share with their children. I have a feeling this title will fly off the shelf. (Outside of a Dog Blog)

Super heroes inspire wonder with their amazing feats, but what about everything else? Do Super Heroes Have Teddy Bears? is a children's picture book from Carmela LaVigna with art from Mike Gordon. [The book follows] a young boy [who] ponders what super heroes face in their everyday lives as he tries to embark on his own adventure of saving the day and living life simultaneously. Do Super Heroes Have Teddy Bears? is a fun read-along storybook for parents and children; highly recommended. (Midwest Book Review)

[This review is from Andi's Kids Books on Blogger.]

Carmela LaVigna Coyle's latest children's book, Do Super Heroes Have Teddy Bears? features a little boy and a little girl with blankets as capes tied around their necks. Doesn't that bring back childhood memories? The little sister is asking her big brother all kinds of questions about how to be a super hero. She wants to know things like whether or not super heroes have teddy bears and what kinds of things they can do. He basically tells her that they can do anything that they want. He also teaches her that super heroes are responsible and kind. They take ownership of their mistakes and do what they can to make them right again. They also get to share secrets with each other. Their parents even get involved for a little bit of guidance.

I love the lessons that the book teaches. All kids are capable of being super heroes, especially when they are being what we call good citizens in my classroom. This book shows them how to do that. I like that the parents empower their children to do the right thing, while still having fun with them. I also like how at the end it says that no two super heroes are alike. It's important to be your own hero.

Too often, young children only associate super heroes with fighting and getting rid of the bad guy. This book provides a much more meaningful definition, to which all children should aspire. It will speak to young children and can inspire them to come up with their own ways of becoming super heroes.

I also enjoyed the flashbacks to my childhood that this book gave me, as I used to teach my younger sister the ways of the world. Cute story!

I received an eARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review of this title.

This book answers the question about how easy it is to become a super hero. Author Carmela LaVigna Coyle presents super hero qualifications in a charming and rhyming manner that will have any Mini-Caped-Crusader sneaking off to borrow a blankie or towel and some string from Mom, readying their imaginations to save the world! Mike Gordon's illustrations really capture the adventures that these pint-sized super heroes go on, from sailing in the rain to soaring off into space.

After reading this book, children should be excited to find new ways to use their imaginations. I thought this book was adorable and sent a positive message about how easy it is to create new games with very little stuff and a lot of imagination and creativity. This book will be great for curious readers who enjoy a fun and engaging story. Definitely a must read!

Same author of "Do Princesses Have Best Friends Forever?" So I have high expectations for this book. And I think this is a perfect read for little boys. I wish there was more about Boys and Teddy Bears, but there is only one mention of the bear. Although the bear is in every illustration. I do like the idea of being a Super Hero for the earth in the end. It was a good environmental nod. I like this book. Not as much as the Princess book, but it is still really good. I would recommend this book for 3+ years

I bought this as a gift for my nephew, who was turning 3. He was having a super hero party, which made this book sorta perfect. And by sorta, I mean really, because he loves his teddy bear. This is the same child who appeared at the top of the stairs in a Batman mask saying he didn't need to take a nap anymore because now he was Batman. Yep. Perfect book.

Such a sweet series and perfect for the kiddos. This is our third book from this author, and I can't wait to see what she writes next. Happy with the purchase.

Perfect gift for a birthday boy age 3-6.

My new favorite by her is, Do Princesses have Best Friends Forever??
