The locally-produced book aims to empower children all over the world for their own abilities and strengths.
In this age of technology, it is a known fact that traditional reading books face some stiff competition from the many innovative, colorful, animated toys and devices that children are inevitably exposed and attracted to. That is not to say that such ‘modern-day’ toys do not have any educational value, naturally, many of them do.
Nevertheless, there is a reason why reading books have stood the test of time. Reading is an essential skill children must learn in order to learn any other subject and studies show that reading for pleasure makes a big difference to children’s educational performance.
What Makes This Book Different?
Several popular kids’ story books have a story-line that is based around fantasy, aiming to encourage kids’ creativity and imagination, which is all well and good. However what this new, locally-produced book does is something that many kids’ books have failed to do.
Instead of empowering the protagonists of the story, whether it is princesses, talking animals, or flying kids, it actually aims to empower and engage the children reading the story for their own inner strengths and abilities.
To understand what we are talking about, you really need to take a moment to read the story to your children and watch their curious expressions change as you leaf through the pages, however for those who haven’t yet purchased it, we have tried our best to express the elements we love most about this book in 5 simple points.
What Do We Love Most About It?
1) It Encourages Dialogue
The questions after each section encourage discussion and conversation with your kids. They promote dialogue in a way that children may be more open to engaging in because there is a pre-amble to each question which the child can relate to.
2) The Book’s Characters Are Relatable
We also love the fact that the protagonists of the story are totally approachable. They are not wearing glamorous glittery costumes and most of the activities featured in the book could be done by any child, wherever they live.
3) It Is Suitable For Children Of Different Ages
We would say this book is suitable for kids as young as 2, to older kids aged 8 to 10 years old. The book is written in such a way that the reader can adapt it, depending on the age of the children being read to.
4) It Offers A New Innovative Way Of Looking At Everyday Activities
Who would have ever thought of seeing ‘eating smart’ as a superpower? Well the author Aunty Sab, has cleverly chosen this, together with 9 other important strengths and activities that can be nurtured in all children, by showing how each and every one of them contributes to the children being superheroes themselves.
5) It Promotes Self-Confidence In Children
‘We’re the new superheroes’ aims to increase children’s self-worth by showing them that being special is not only for children who have special powers (such as flying, becoming invisible or talking to animals). As author Aunty Sab explains:
“While I was writing ‘We’re the new superheroes’, I secretly hoped that this book would be a tool for children to understand just how wonderfully unique and powerful they really are. Now that we’ve launched, I’m so blessed to have the opportunity to watch kids recognise their powers, embrace their inner strengths and shine. Nothing is more rewarding.”
