I do not think that the origins of being a kind, caring and helpful child are of any importance to the book. This is not a psychological discussion - it is a book written for a 2 - 4 year old. (In my humble opinion)
True. However, I think it would be beneficial and interesting if the next book shows how the parents or community helped Toni get these "powers". For instance, a picture of a parent doing something caring.
Very good idea! I would like that also. Thank you.

Maybe. I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it all went.

I think revealing such information wouldnt be such a good idea because the target audience of this book are too young to comprehend such information. May be for a little older audience, that would be suitable for them

I tend to differ, Toni did not have any superpowers. He is a kid like any other kid. He just happens to have mastered responsibility at an early age.
I agree. Every kid is a superhero at home, with matured upbringing, plus some costume and pretend.
About the origin of Toni's superpowers, a two year old kid will only be too happy to watch the colourful illustrations in the book and not bother where he learnt all that from.

Yes I agree with your opinion had the author explained the origin of the super powers of Toni, the story would have been even more intresting.
