This book reminds us that we all possess heroic qualities and those qualities are based on how we treat ourselves and those around us. Human kindness, compassion, empathy, and patience are the heroic qualities illustrated through the characters presented in this book. I had the pleasure of reading this book and marveling at the many important messages I took away from the pages. These messages included the importance of community service, kindness toward others, and embracing diversity. As a little person and someone who deals with societal prejudice and misnomers, I was personally moved by this book. I believe that parents should read this story to their children, and every school library would benefit from possessing a copy of this book!" --Meredith Eaton "The Superheroes Club passes on vital life lessons for children everywhere.
