Great children's' book that is also great a read-along book for family enjoyment.

Jeremy with cerebral palsy, uses a wheelchair; Dan is blind; Kayla uses a walker; Aubrey has prosthetic legs. Jeremy has a science lab at home. After experimenting with his pet hamster he makes a startling discovery. He invites his best friend Dan to join ...more

Secret Supers is a very special book!

I loved this book, not only the storyline but the very special kids in it. It was wonderful to read how the kids worked together to support each other, but also solve social problems in the neighborhood. Their fundraising for the school district to keep the disabled kids in their own schools was a huge task, but important enough to try. It was wonderful to read about their successes!!

Recommends it for: Young Reader/Listeners = 10-15
In a straightforward plot/storyline that won't be confused with SciFi, 4 disabled kids become "enabled," even Super! They are good kids with good intentions and they do the right thing. The parents are all involved, and the community is a middle-class ideal. A sweet read/listen for the suggested reader age range of 10-15. ...more

There’s so much awesome stuff happening in this book! I really enjoyed the story, especially the backbone of it. Each of these kids (Jeremy, Dan, Kayla, and Aubrey) has their own disability and when Jeremy stumbles upon a way to give each of them a super power, they still have to deal with real life. The super power doesn’t take away or negate their disability but it does give them an edge. Plus, they learn to work together as team, using their individual powers to boost each other. Just a fanta ...more

Secret Supers is such a fun story, and it has a great message. I listened with my mid-grade kiddos, one boy and one girl, and they both enjoyed the story. The target audience may be mid-grade kids, but this is the type of story that is entertaining for both kids and adults.
This book is fast-paced and just loads of fun from start to finish, and it has such a positive vibe. The kids each have a different disability, and those disabilities are handled honestly while still keeping an upbeat vibe. I

Secret Supers is a really cool middle grade story about a bunch of handicapped kids that gain superpowers. The story is written for a younger audience, so it might not appeal to older readers, but I bet kids will really enjoy it, and it is wonderful to see the kids in the story empowered.

The narrator takes a bit of getting used to. He uses a rather nasally voice for one of the main characters that can be hard to listen to. But he is pretty good at character voices, and he grew on me as the book

It was a book with many facets while being easy enough for kids to read and complex enough for adults to enjoy it as well. The following are some aspects of the book. A realistic but not depressing view of various difficulties of being handicapped also shows many different ways people can be handicapped. A scientific analysis of each hero's powers although the method of obtaining them is mysterious. A story of friends facing difficulties together and in the end overcoming it with both hard work, ...more
