Wee Reads: Super Manny Stands Up Kelly DiPucchio

Ever since Finn was born, and even before then, we would read to him. We wanted to show him reading from an early age. Now he loves us to read the same books, over, and over, and over. But it is the sweetest thing, when he likes to pick out a book and climb into our laps. 

What Finn Reads....  
Super Manny Stands Up!Super Manny Stands Up by Kelly DiPucchio


New York Times bestselling author Kelly DiPucchio and illustrator Stephanie Graegin bring a lionhearted new hero to life in this tender, sparkling story about standing up for what’s right—and finding your inner superpowers.
Every day after school, Manny saves the world from formidable foes.
Zombie bears, evil cloud monsters, and alien robots with laser beam eyes are no match for Super Manny. But when Manny encounters a real-life nemesis in the school cafeteria, will he be able to summon his superhero strength to save the day?

What Finn Thinks...

Do you like this book?
Yeah because I like Superman because he flies. I love superheroes. Can we turn this book into a robot?

What's your favorite part of the book?
I really liked the Alien Robots with the laser beam eyes! They were cool. And the zooooombie bears were scary! I really loved when super manny fought the bad guys! It made me feel sad when he was picking on the hedgehog. It's not nice to be mean to people. Super manny was nice when he told the bad guy to stop!

What do you think of the cover?
I like it. All of it is silly. The raccoon is wearing a cape and a shirt, but not pants and that is just so silly. Why doesn't he wear pants?!

Do you want me to read it again?
Yeah the next day

What Momma Thinks... 

This is a great book that shows how people can stand up for others. It shows how to be brave and help others. The art is cute and I loved the "bad guys" that manny was fighting.

  1. I'm going to add this to my list of books to buy for my niece. I think she would love this book. She's really into super heroes right now and likes to pretend to be Super Girl.
