“DC Comics: The Big Book of Girl Power” Teaches Kids About Female Superheroes!
I love it when cute little books about comic book superheroes are released for little kids. DC Comics: The Big Book of Girl Power shines the spotlight on DC female superheroes and makes for a very fun read.
Author Julie Merberg wrote DC Comics: The Big Book of Girl Power. It is Book #20 in the DC Super Heroes series. The book explains the powers of various female superheroes from the DC Comics Universe. It also talks about what makes them great. You’ll get to read about the origins of Wonder Woman, Bumblebee, Batgirl, Katana, and more.
When I first started reading this book, I wanted to know how the author would talk about iconic female characters that weren’t specifically superheroes. For example, Catwoman. I have to admit that I smiled when I read Catwoman’s description. The book states that she started off as a thief. But she changed her ways because she felt bad about stealing from others. I mean, I get that this is a children’s books but I don’t think Selina Kyle has ever felt bad about stealing. However, the author did address the fact that even though Catwoman isn’t a superhero, at least her heart’s in the right place.
The art in the book can be described as quite classic. All of the female characters are in their old outfits. As a comic book fan, it felt nice to see the classic versions again. The book is also full of color so it’ll definitely attract young readers.
DC Comics: The Big Book of Girl Power is intended for ages 4-8. But that doesn’t mean that grownups, including myself, can’t enjoy it too.
Little kids, especially girls, might not be old enough to watch female-centric shows such as Supergirl or read related comic books but they can still learn a lot about these iconic superheroes through this book. Kids need fictional characters they can look up to and DC Comics: The Big Book of Girl Power might just be what little girls (or boys) need to experience a burst of confidence. With the holiday season coming up it would serve as a good gift for a little reader.
