Papa: So Beans, what did you think?

Miloš: I thought that...well...really Green Lantern shouldn't help Superman, but that was nice, and at the beach it's cool that they put Josephus in there.

Papa: Yeah that's one of my favourite parts too.

Miloš: I like when the Penguin robs the bank. I like that he got stopped by Batman.

Papa: Hang on.

Miloš: What?

Papa: Why did you the Penguin to lose to Batman? What's wrong with robbing a bank?

Miloš: Nothing.

Papa: Why is there nothing wrong with robbing a bank?

I like how Batman stoped the Pinguin from his idea to control the birds.

This is step 1 in the Step into Reading series. This book follows Batman, Superman, Flash, Aquaman, and Green Lantern as they fly around town helping the Gotham City from the antics of the Penguin. This is a great book to engage young boys in reading about their favorite super heroes. The text is simple and largely printed.

Merged review:

This book is an introductory to reading book level one for preschool and kindergarten readers. As stated on the back cover of the book, the font is large, the w

I recently bought this book in a set for my 6 year old son.

The birds are going crazy in Gotham. Batman figures out that the Penguin is up to no good. The Penguin has made a machine that is upsetting all the birds, hoping that the Super Friends will remain detracted while he robs the bank. Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash, and Aquaman work together to save the day. Easy text, and great illustrations. My son needed very little help with reading this book.

This is a cute and basic introduction to dc superheroes for beginner readers. The birds of Gotham City are out of control and it's up to Superman, Batman, Green Latern, etc. to restore peace - when they come upon Penguin robbing the bank! The text - and the plot - are simplistic, but I think any superhero-loving child will love testing their reading skills out with the this book.

My nephew loves super heroes. This is his first super hero book, and boy, did we read this one a lot! I appreciated that this book wasn't a traditional comic book, but instead an early reader in traditional early reader style format. This was a great merger of the super hero tale he wants, and the early reader book format that I want.

For some random reason, I drive mommy crazy requesting she read this book multiple times a night. Mommy doesn't understand why Batman and Superman would be hanging out (along with the 3 other guys) . . . wouldn't it make more sense to split up and help more cities? If the super heroes are SUPER, they don't really need to tag team. Or so mom says.

Natalie really likes superheroes, but finding nonviolent stories is a little tricky. This one did a pretty good job. It focused on her favorite (Batman) and kept things simple. Not sure she understood about robbing the bank, though.
Beth
Normally with the kids books, I don't pay much attention to plot, especially with these early readers. This one was just plain goofy with the birds distracting the Super Friends. But superheroes are my son's favorite thing right now. So he loved it and I laughed at how bad it was.

A superhero book that is engaging and fun for kiddos learning to read.

My son was disappointed that the bad guy was not on the cover, lol.

Given to us by Eric and Whitney. The boys aren't quite up to comic book heroes.

Cute and fun little reader to get children interested in reading through their favorite super-heroes.
Sarah Adamson
A very basic book about the DC superheroes. Meant for early readers and includes not many words yet a lot of complex words!! So bit bizarre.
Nancy Jo Lambert
Perfect for my K and 1 friends! This super hero early reader is really going to be a hit! Sparse on story, but the super hero characters will be loved by the boys!!!

Fun little kids book.

Feeds into Danny's current obsession with super heroes. He runs around the house yelling, "Spiderman (or Super Hero of the day) saves the day!" A hand-me-down from the cousins, I believe.
