The book itself is great! Super heroes and villains- everything a little kid would love. Illustrations are nice and stories are great for ages 5+.
Added some pics to show barcode sticker, illustrations and table of contents.
The book is organized into 12 stories and includes the following: The Amazing Spider-man: Keep away from Kraven the Hunter, Spider-man vs. Sandman, Spider-man vs. the sinister six, Peter Parker’s pictures, the uncanny X-Men: the X-men’s first mission, The mighty Thor: a brother’s battle, the Iron Man’s new armor, surprise attack, The mighty Avengers: Captain America Returns, Hawkeye and the mighty Avengers, The incredible Hulk: Desert Brawl, and the courageous Captain America: The lethal lair of red skull.
I found this to be a fun book to read and it reminded me of the comic books I used to read when I was a young boy. These stories were designed to be read in 5-minutes for each section.
Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: The Mighty Pen your self-defense friend: Tactical use of the pen for self-defense).
The DC 5 minute storybook, by contrast, includes a bunch of creative (albeit silly) stories where the heroes use their brains to beat the bad guys. There's very little violence.
Violence has a place in stories, but I'd prefer to keep it out of stories for young kids who aren't quite mature enough to make good decisions about when to emulate their favorite super heroes.
Both girls and boys need to see equal representation of both genders in superhero books. I especially don't want my little girl to get the message that only men can be heroic. Marvel has had so many serious issues with failing to represent their female characters on the toy market, and I'm disappointed they are still struggling with this lesson in this day and age.
Thank goodness I bought it used. I'm glad I didn't give them any of my hard earned money.
I try to make my reviews engaging and useful. Please click helpful if you thought this review was worthwhile. Thanks!
Purchase for my 4 year old who is really into super heroes lately and needed something a little more involved than the Little Golden Books and Berenstain Bears.
This book is well drawn and illustrated, stories are just the right length to keep his attention and involved enough that he doesn't get bored due to the simplicity.
Hardcover is a bonus and is well constructed and should stand up to normal abuse/wear and tear.
Heavy weight paper, plenty of stories and a great selection of heroes show up for variety.
Would definitely recommend to anyone with a child who likes super heroes and needs a little more meat to bed time stories.
Especially if you can get this on a deal (less than $10)
