I have reviewed this book. Though there were some flaws, I think this could be a starter book for the very young kids.

I rate it 4 out of 4 stars and would definitely recommend it to parents and teachers. I find it to be an effective tool for kids to learn how to read as well as teachings on how to be responsible. There was nothing i disliked about the book.

I think there is definitely an audience for this book and it did well with representing everyday situations that kids would be able to relate to. I would have liked a more direct tie-in to the “superhero” aspect of the character’s personality however.

I read and reviewed this book. I rated it 4 stars as I thought it to be perfect for children who are learning to read and write. The repeated words on every page and colorful illustrations make it suitable for the age group this book is aimed at. The lack of a plot does make it a little dull to engage with but also makes it easy to comprehend. In my opinion, this is a must buy for parents of young kids.

This book is fantastic for beginning readers who are just starting to recognize the corolation between spoken and written words. Colorful pictures, relatable scenerios and a smart, helpful main character, make this the perfect book for little ones. There is nothing to critique when it comes to Toni and his super adventures of reading!

This certainly is a very nice book for early readers📚👦🏻👧🏻📚seems very helpful in value formation too. Studies show that all of us, at a certain young stage, tend to absorb subconsciously everything that we see or hear. That’s why, being exposed to this book, our young readers have the opportunity to take in many, if not all, of the good traits our main character, Toni, exemplifies, thus, would grow acquiring these positive characteristics as well👍😃 Congratulations to Author R.D. Base for a very good, well-thought idea of a subject for this book! It's so deserving of its 4 out of 4 stars rating! Congrats for being #BOTM for the month of July too👏Best regards!

Rated Toni the Superhero 4 out of 4 stars. Terrific first reader which helpfully expands a child's vocabulary with simple sentences and clear illustrations. And Toni is a great role model, depicted happily playing with friends and taking responsibility for chores. Those are my grounds for recommendation.

This one sounds like a great book for children. I enjoy reading children's books ones in a while. It puts me in a feel good place and brings back childhood memories. I would love to read it.

For a super hero series, I think I like the fact that the protagonist actually has a normal life which is good because its a children's book. This way kids can relate a lot better with the story line.
Also I like the illustrations, big and beautiful. I think the fact that most if not all the characters, smile a lot is a plus for kids too.
The author also tried to use the book to teach kids that although its cool to have fun, its important too to help at home too!

Latest Review: Health Tips, Myths, and Tricks by Morton E Tavel, MD

Post by AnonReviewer2211 » 13 Oct 2018, 10:44

I reviewed this book a while ago and gave it 4 out of 4 stars. First off, the cover is bright and beautiful. It immediately draws the attention of a child. Also, I really appreciate the fact that the author has made efforts to encourage young kids to engage in outdoor activities alongside helping others.

Sometimes, humanity and selflessness are sidelined while cruelty and cheating are focused on, although in a bad light. I like that they are presented with Toni as a hero who can inspire them to do good deeds themselves and feel appreciated and acknowledged.

So, overall, it is a nice read for young kids. I would definitely recommend it to others.
