Grandson Rating - 5 Stars

Sammy is a kid who cares about others and wants to protect them. When a baby rubber ducky come under attack from a trio of bullies, Sammy dons his cape (a blanket tied around his neck) and sets about righting the wrongs!

This was a fun little book for my two (almost three) year old grandson, Jonathan. He sat with his eyes big, turning the pages for me as the story progressed, then asked me to read it again when we were through. It was a hit, for sure!

Grandma rating - 3 Stars

As the Grandma reading this story I had some "huh?" moments and I'd recommend parents read this before sharing it with their kids because some of Sammy's solutions for getting rid of the bullies might not coincide with what you'd teach in your home. For example, making a turkey sandwich and throwing it far away for a bear to chase, or getting a juicy steak for the bulldog bully to chase are not "lesson" solutions for your kids, and might be construed as bribery to stop the bullying. If you're hoping for "real life" solutions to bullying, this isn't the book for you. But if you just want a fun read for the kidlettes, this might be a good one!

One real issue I have with this book is that after the story there are links, clearly designed to appeal to kids, that take you to Amazon to buy the next book, or books similar to this one. There are also links where you can click to download additional fun materials, but those links don't work from the Kindle app on my iPad. This could definitely cause some disappointment for your kids.

I don't see those things as deal breakers, and I'm not trying to read more into the story than there is, but I'm just mentioning them to give you a heads up about what to expect.

Sammy wakes early one morning, even before Mom and Dad awake. He sneaks into their room and jumps up and down yelling, "I'm exercising!" "I'm a super hero and will save everybody!" He runs out of their room and notices his baby rubber ducky is lying at the base of the stairs. Then Zach the stuffed mean bulldog, Scary Teddy Bear, and the stuffed big bad wolf come down the stairs. Sammy yells at them to leave ducky alone, but they all snap back at him with mean sounds. How does he coax the three mean toys away from Ducky? Sammy is so smart, could you think of a way to save Ducky? This story really had me laughing out loud. It does focus on bullying, and the methods Sammy comes up with could mean no steak for dinner. But it does emphasize distraction can be one way to face a bully. Sammy sure knows how to keep his toys under control. A really cute story for 4 and 5 year olds, parents will like this, too.

This is a humorous, short children's book that is great for bedtime!

It is about a little boy named Sammy who defends his friends from bullies and keeps his family safe. The best part is that he does so without the use of violence! Definitely a keeper for me.

I am especially fond of the great artwork and the message behind the story. Bullies have always been and will always be a problem in everyone's childhoods. With this type of story available to all parents, at least children have that glimmer of hope in their lives.

This is the kind of book your child will ask you to
read over and over again, with delightful illustrations
and great colors that keep kids fully engaged.

In this story, the main character starts the tail with
a fun little romp to his parents' bedroom during one
Saturday morning.

Who doesn't have fond memories of your child sneaking
into your bed and the family enjoying the start of the
weekend together?

I love the fact that as you read this book, happy family
memories are drawn up.

When Sammy suddenly sees his favorite rubber ducky in
peril, he metaphorphs into "Super Sammy" and flies off to
figure out the whodunit.

It turns out, his friend is the 'victim' of bullying from
Sammy's other imaginary play friend toys.
What ensues is a fun, attention-grabbing story of how
sammy conjures up his superpowers and kid-bravery to save
the day. This story demonstrates in colorful pictures
how sammy is motivated by the desire to help the underdog
(represented by his ducky) who's being bullied.
Themes like courage, speaking out against what's wrong
and bravery are lessons kids can and should learn at an
early age. The Super Sammy story does this nicely.

Whether you're a babysitter, teacher, parent or
grandmother/grandfather this is a nice story to share with kids.
You can't go wrong with nice graphics and colors which keep young readers engaged as well.
Highly recommended.

I read this book to my 4 year old daughter tonight and she smiled or giggled all the way through it. That's a winner! I told her I was doing a review and she wanted me to mention that her favorite part was when the baby ducky was returned to her mother :-) Thanks Bolaji! I already picked up another one of your books and looking forward to additional ones in the series.
