Two very simple books about super heroes and villains written by my first grader.
He was so excited to have me read the book! As I read it I was impressed with his sentences about super heroes. He wrote that super heroes help people, they are nice, and they do lots and lots of work. He even wanted to read it before going to bed. I made a really big deal about his new book and said that the author of this book is my new favorite author. "I sure hope that this author writes another book. Maybe next time he will write about villains!" After I said that, my son got a sneaky little smile on his face!
"Super Heroes are heroes that save the day."
Guess what! My encouragement worked and this morning I went downstairs to find him writing a book about villains. I love that he is writing books all by himself! There is no need to make book writing complicated or have a huge center set up for writing. My son had access to paper and a pencil and ended up writing his book on the floor! The fact that he did it on his own, made him even more proud of his work.
I know that all of our reading has helped him with his writing! One of the books that we have read TOO many times is Meet The Super Hero Squad by Lucy Rosen.
This is one of the first super hero books that I bought my son and it is actually one of my favorites! In this book the reader is introduced to each of the super heroes. The pictures in this book are bright and friendly compared to some of the other super hero books we have. I learned a lot about the super heroes and their powers after reading this book! We have so many of these Marvel Super Hero Squad books I am almost an expert on Silver Surfer, Iron Man, Captain America, and the Thing!
