“Man of Steel” is now in theatres, and not only adults, but kids too, are having a renewed interest in “SuperMan” or Clark Kent.
“A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.”
HarperCollins has several new children’s books based on the feature film, for a variety of ages.
$5.39 – Man of Steel: The Early Years: Junior Novel – This one is aimed at children ages 8 and up. With 143 pages, there are 8 pages of full-color photos from the movie. (Kevin Costner in many of them)! 🙂
$6.29 – Man of Steel: Reusable Sticker Book – this is a great idea to have for a road trip or plane ride this summer. Kids 4-8 will have plenty of fun with reusable stickers – why didn’t they have those when I was a kid? 🙂
$3.59 – Man of Steel: Superman Saves Smallville – After Clark Kent discovers his true identity— as Superman™—he vows to protect Smallville from harm. His promise is tested when General Zod and his followers attack, leaving Superman no choice but to use his superpowers to save the planet.”
$3.59 – Man of Steel: The Fate of Krypton – “When Jor-El discovered that Krypton was doomed, he made the heartbreaking decision to save his son, Kal-El. His only choice: send his son to the safety of a faraway planet, galaxies away from home. Read all about Kal-El’s amazing journey to Earth—and how he grew up to become Superman™.”
My daughter has never really been interested in Superman, so I was surprised when she really enjoyed these “I Can Read” books (and didn’t want to give these to her cousin).
$3.59 – Man of Steel: Superman’s Superpowers (I Can Read Book 2) – is a great introduction for younger kids to the story of Superman and those who are learning to read. It’s a Level 2 book, so there are a few challenging words in there….great for my almost 6 yr old.
