  • The Spring 10 Season of the Super Hero Squad
    Blasting bright background colors, the books' vibrant covers place the familiar characters front and center in poses that radiate super-powered confidence and villain-besting energy. The very youngest TV show fans will appreciate Iron Man Springs into Action! (PreS-K), a sturdy board book with simple text and colorful layouts. When trouble begins to brew in Super Hero City, the stalwart squad leader gathers together his "strong and fearless" friends in a 1-to-10 count-along narrative. Presented on difficult-to-tear pages, the glossy artwork provides clear images of each hero.

    A staple-bound storybook will draw in the read-aloud crowd (and maybe some more-confident independent readers) with a detailed text and dynamic Popsicle-hued illustrations. Dr. Doom's evil minions are busy planting flowers, but not to beautify the city: when watered, these genetically engineered blossoms burgeon into monsters capable of tearing down buildings brick by brick (as Wolverine quips, "Talk about flower power!"). Never fear, Hulk Saves the Day! (PreS-Gr 2) with his formidable weed-whacking fists and the help of his friends. The glossy pages are filled with excitement, amusing dialogue, and an appreciation of the value of teamwork.  

    Presented easy-reader style, Meet the Super Hero Squad! (PreS-Gr 2) will appeal to a wide audience. Short sentences and simple vocabulary introduce the good guys in colorful single- and double-page illustrations. The layouts still maintain a high-level of oomph, but the text is clearly laid out against white or pastel backgrounds, helping new readers to zoom in on the words. The book's focus on the characters and enthusiastic tone will also attract pre-readers.

    These inviting titles are sure to captivate TV series devotees. Display them in your library and encourage kids to "Hero Up" on reading.
