About Even Superheroes Have Bad Days

When Superheroes don’t get their way,
when they’re sad, when they’re mad, when they’ve had a bad day . . .
. . . they COULD super-tantrum, they COULD but they DON’T,
because REAL Superheroes just WOULDN’T—they WON’T!

All kids have trouble getting a grip on their emotions, sometimes—even young superheroes! But what do they do when they’re having a bad day? Colorful action-packed illustrations and a dynamite rhyming text reveal the many ways superheroes (and ordinary children, too) can resist the super-temptation to cause a scene when they’re sad, mad, frustrated, lonely, or afraid. From burning off steam on a bike or a hike, to helping others, this energetic picture book has plenty of fun ideas to help kids cope when they’re feeling overwhelmed.

My Thoughts on Even Superheroes Have Bad Days

My kids love superheroes, so it’s no surprise that they enjoyed this book. It’s about controlling your emotions and not letting your anger or frustration get the better of you.

When superheroes have bad days do they end up hurting people? No. They could, but they don’t. Instead, they channel their frustrations into doing good deeds and helping others. By helping others, the superheroes lift their own spirits as well. You can change your outlook and change your day simply by being kind to others.

Even Superheroes Have Bad Days is a sweet and valuable reminder for kids about the importance of not lashing out when we’re angry, hurt, or frustrated. The illustrations are bright and expressive and so much fun to look at. Definitely recommended for anyone interested in teaching their kids about emotions, bad days, and proper behavior.
