Most of the books do show violence (see Hulk photo) like punching, kicking or similar.
I've uploaded Photos of the books, illustrations and sample text.
As a mom of a superhero fan, however, my preschooler can't get enough of it and LOVES when I read these to him, so I guess it depends on what you're hoping to get out of this set. We also got the Lego Super Heroes Phonics Box Set, and I honestly can't believe how impressive that one is...I've used that as a teaching tool with GREAT success.
My little man just turned 4 and not reading yet but I imagine him easily reading to me when he does begin school. I mean after all kids are reading in kindergarten now right? Crazy but true.

Our five year old son is at an age where there is nothing better than discussing and playing super heroes with his school friends. I never really got into it and don’t care much about modern day super hero movies. But he’s just fascinated, talks about nothing else while gathering knowledge about these, to me exotic heroes like Hawkeye and Iron Man .
For guided reading at home I ordered a couple of the single World of Reading super hero books a few weeks ago. And he obviously loved them. I must admit it’s a very clever concept and a great motivation for him to spend some time with books. In fact I would have loved it at his age if I could learn how read from such well-presented stories about my favourite characters in attractive, colourful books.
The stories are straight forward but make sense and teach your child the key characteristics and abbreviated back ground of each super hero, which is of great interest to our son.
It is helping our son to read, although I must say he reads these books so many times over that he remembers the text by heart. Each book has a very clever back page that show a range of covers of other books in the series, for which our son has obviously been begging us.
We now hand him a new books from this books as a reward for proper participation in swimming or martial arts classes.
The next purchase might be a few loose booklets again about some of his missing charracters liek Black Panther or Thor.
To conclude; this is a highly recommended cost-efficient box with 'powerful' content, very warmly received by our little bookworm.
It's worth noting that level 1 in these books isnt comparable with Oxford Reading Tree/Biff, Chip and Kipper level 1 books. These are more difficult but still full of lots of words that early readers can read or sound out.
It's full of irregular words.
It doesn't match British key stage vocabulary.
It isn't built on any kind of progressive learning (paw patrol do some that are which he has)
My 5 year old loves them and his been a catalyst to him reading EVERYTHING.
He started year 1 in September and wasn't being challenged, he was sight reading the books he was given that were supposed to last week.
These are a challenge for him, but it's made him want to read. And more than that, it has given him the confidence to try and read anything.
So I think they're brilliant, as long as you don't mind all the other stuff they're not.
