    1. The 5 year loved it, my husband and I thought that the voice was wrong. Superman wouldn't refer to himself as "earth's greatest super hero."

    2. Cosentino, Ralph. Superman: The Story of the Man of Steel. (2010)Annotation: Kal- El's parents sent him on a rocket ship from his planet Krypton to Earth. Here he was found by two farmers that adopted him and realized that he had special powers. Now he uses his superpowers to protect Earth, and calls himself Superman.Theme: Superheros, superpowers, positive choicesWay to use with children: You can use this book to talk about making positive choices and being a good citizenRecommended ages: 5- 10 [...]

    3. Good introduction to Superman for small children. My 5 year old enjoyed it and the retro illustrations are really neat.

    4. O melhor do livro são as ilustrações (também, se não fossem boas era mau, tendo em conta que é banda desenhada). Mas mesmo sendo um livro para crianças e mesmo sendo o Super-Homem achei que a história era demasiado simplista e até arrogante. Vale o que vale.

    5. Hey kids! Wanna know about Superman? Have your parent or guardian read this book to you. If you get bored with Superman's story just wait until you get to the villain's section of the book. This book will give you youngsters a brief overview of Superman with some classic visuals.

    6. Oversized and bold comic illustrations make this picture book fun for readers of all ages. The story is short and simple telling the fictional story of superman, his background, his powers, etc. Perfect for toddlers and read-alouds.

    7. This is a fun introduction to Superman for young kids. It's probably shelved with picture books, but it's really more an introduction to comic books/graphic novels in format.

    8. Part picture book, part graphic novel and, if Cosentino's Batman book is any indication, will be wildly popular with little boys and girls who wish they were old enough to read "real" comic books.

    9. So wanted to like this. The illustrations were a little clunky and inconsistent. I'll read to my 3-year-old for the true test

    10. Weaker than the Batman and Wonder Woman titles in the series. Fails to convey the ultimate morality and integrity of the character. Still, it is a good introduction to the Superman.

    11. Great version of the story for youngsters who are just learning about the importance of the Man of Steel!!!!

    12. The kids loved this for Super-Hero Super Storytime! I thought it was going to be too long, but they loved answering me when I said, "It's a bird, it's a plane, it's"

    13. My seven year old loved it! It read to me like a nonfiction book, I prefer ones with story lines more.

    14. Nice history of the Man of Steel for children, with introductions to the major villains and themes that permeate the comics.

    15. One of the first books my son learned to read (or were those words memorized?). Now he reads it to his younger brother and the legend gets passed onto another little superman.
