Batman is reliable, always working to protect Gotham City. He is loyal to his friends like Robin, always watching his back. He is courageous when he fights against villains like the Joker. Batman is trustworthy! Using terms and ideas from the Six Pillars of Character framework, this book on trustworthiness supports school character education programs, while exciting readers with vivid illustrations of one of their favorite super heroes.
Batman is used in this story to illustrate lessons on being Trustworthy. It is one of a 6 book Series where each focus on a positive attribute. The others are:
Batman uses his interactions with the citizens of Gotham and the villains intent on causing trouble to teach about trust, loyalty, responsibility, honesty and courage. At the end of the story Batman breaks it down in simple one liners to drive the point in further.
I have kids who LOVE Marvel & DC so using something they are already familiar with and have come to view as a positive source just further drives in the point that these are good characteristics to make a part of your everyday life. The story is very simple and easy to understand, the graphics seem to reflect what was used in Batman The Animated Series so they can be a little dark but that just goes with Batman’s persona.
My kids did have fun pointing out all the villains such as Two-Face, Poison Ivy, Joker, Harley Quinn, Riddler, Scarecrow, Penguin, Clayface and Killer Croc.
It’s a good book and series to help teach both at home and in the classroom especially as comic heroes and villains have become such a mainstay in current society.
Thank you to Netgalley and Capstone for allowing me to review this book.
