A young Supergirl fan faces her most elusive adversary — sleep! As darkness falls, a young girl attempts to catch some Z’s while DC Comics’ SUPERGIRL tracks down an enemy. With super hero traits, like BRAVERY, PATIENCE, and PERSISTENCE, they’ll both turn sleepless nights into sweet success and sweet dreams. Along with Omar Lozano’s action-packed art, bestselling author Michael Dahl (Bedtime for Batman, Good Morning, Superman and Be a Star, Wonder Woman) delivers an imaginative bedtime book for fangirls and fanboys alike.
I have 2 daughters who are HUGE fans of Supergirl and Wonder Woman so reading this to them was a no brainer.
I liked how the story started off with the girl essentially ‘acting out’ or mimicking the actions of Supergirl because I often let my girls do something similar when we first read together at night as I find it helps give them that opportunity to release one last bit of energy before settling down. This is a great book to let your kid be a part of especially as the story encourages them to rest and explains why they need to so they can be a hero the next day – a great reason to give your kid who doesn’t want to sleep!
As a mother I liked the mother/daughter theme in the story and it helped me point out again the importance of family. The story and art work together very well to show the dichotomy between day and night which reinforces that idea of now it’s bedtime and you need to rest.
If you have a DC fan you’ll want to pick up this really cute story to help encourage your young one for the need to recharge so they can be a Super Hero too. If you haven’t checked it out Michael Dahl has also written a great Batman version!
Thank you to Netgalley and Capstone for allowing me to review this book.
