Wee Reads: Max and the Superheroes by Rocio Bonilla

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. 

Max and the SuperheroesMax and the Superheroes by Rocio Bonilla


Max and his friends are crazy about playing and learning about superheroes and their superpowers. Everyone has a favorite, and Max's is Megapower, even though his friends aren't sure that a girl superhero can be that strong. Megapower is cool for so many reasons. She's brave, tames animals, has x-ray vision, is super smart, and she can fly. She also happens to be Max's mom (which might be why she's Max's favorite!). Max is an intrepid, sassy, and funny narrator in a book that uses both traditional picture-book layouts and comic-book-like panels.

Do you like this book?

Yeah because I love superheroes!

What's your favorite part of the book?

When he's chasing the kitty! And his grampa tells him about superheroes. My papi tells me about superheroes. And then his mom is supermom! You're a superhero momma! Like Harley Quinn! (Apparently I'm Harley and daddy is Joker.)

What do you think of the cover?

I like the batman! 

I would have loved to actually be able to read the actual book of this because it seems like it would be awesome in the actual format of the book. This one was hard to read on the kindle because it's meant to be like a comic and a picture book, and well. It just didn't translate well to the kindle.

Either way.
The story is cute, about a little boy obsessed with comics and superheroes (We're working on Finn loving comics and superheroes, because they're awesome and we love them as well) 

My favorite part though is that his favorite superhero is a female. It talks not only about how strong and awesome she is, but also how good she is, and how intelligent she is. 


You find out that his favorite superhero is actually his mom. And I'm not going to lie, that part totally made me cry and then Finn said I'm his favorite superhero and I swear I need to buy this book because it's a really great one.
