Lori Ries' picture book taps into an age-old segment of family life: the big brother who seems like "superkid" to his younger sibling. And so..."Super Sam," who lifts toy trucks, leaps tall pillows, escapes teddy bears and, in the end, comes to little brother's rescue. Quick. Bouncy. Funny. Little siblings will love it. Solo kids will wish they had a super brother.

This charming, simple tale of an adorable toddler, Petey, and his exuberant older brother, Sam, is told from Petey's perspective and packed with playful scenes that will remind small children of their own imaginary games. To play "Super Sam," Sam dresses up in bright red pants and a yellow top with a big "S" on the front and ties a light blue blanket around his neck for a cape. To Petey's obvious delight, Sam performs the usual superhero feats - i.e., "flying" (jumping from a chair to some cushions), showing his "strength" (lifting a toy truck high in the air), "leap[ing] tall buildings (piles of pillows), "climb[ing] the cliff" (their bunk bed) and "becom[ing] invisible" (hiding under a blanket). But can this superhero comfort a wailing Petey after Sam accidentally steps his finger while trying to "rescue" him from a stuffed bear? Rama's delightful, childlike illustrations in colored pencil, water-soluble crayon and watercolor make it worth your time to read the book and find out. Her simple illustrations are a perfect match for Ries' sparse text and make for great picture book for babies and toddlers. Highly recommended for ages 1 to 3.

This is the perfect book for a family like ours. Our son, Sam, is now 4, and his little sister is 1 and a half. Super Sam has become a classic in our home, and has been a consistent favourite for more than a year now, with both our son and daughter. The text is minimal, but the story is absolutely charming. Super Sam shows off all of his super powers to his adoring fan, and then when he accidentally steps on her finger, he ends up removing his special blankie 'super cape', and gives it to her to console her. Super Sam indeed. We love it!!!

I have a son named Sam, so like to get him books with his name. This story has very few words on each page - most of the story line needs to be implied by deciphering what is going on in the beautiful illustrations. It is great for a 2 -3year old, but my 3 year old son will likely outgrow it by age 4. For now, he does enjoy it and even talks about Super Sam at other times - saying he is super sam when he put a towel around his shoulders, etc.

Really cute, fun book for the under 5. We bought this for my son when we were expecting and he still loves to read this. Fun pictures, not a lot of words, but it makes a for a great conversation
