Superman Science: The Real-World Science Behind Superman's Powers (Dc Super Heroes) Reviews

Review Score: 4 out of 5 star From 2 user ratings


*I received an e-arc of this book from Netgalley, in exchange for my honest review*

This book was cute. Mainly, it goes about explaining Superman’s powers in the real world context. He flies so this is a simplified version of how planes work. He’s strong here’s world records of strength. Most connections are basic lessons of physical science, historical feats, and connections to different animals.

The layout and organization is really well done. It did feel overly dumbed down in places, but that may just be my AP brain. This is meant for younger children after all. Though, in a lot of places, it felt only tangentially connected to Superman. Superman was the jumping of point to learn the science, but he wants the main focus it felt.

I think the reason I didn’t enjoy this book as much as I could have is I forgot it was targeted for much younger children, and so the fact that everything was so simplified and truncated made me feel patronized.

I think, if your 10-14, maybe a little younger or older depending on reading level/sciences you’ve taken, you’ll like this. Especially if you like Superman or you like learning. But if your the kind if person who takes AP sciences courses, you won’t get much out it.

" Loved this book. The art work is amazing and it makes learning science fun, who wouldn't want to have a comparison to Superman himself? I find that his book is great for children to learn about science, but it was a bit long. " said.

"Superman is the World's Greatest Hero! His super powers include super-strength, lightning speed, laser vision, and the ability to fly. But what is the science behind strength, speed, sight, and flight? Does anything or anyone in our world have similar abilities to Superman?

Superman Science explores how real-life science and engineering relate to the Man of Steel's famous powers. In this science book readers learn about X-rays, speed, strength, and more. Each super power is examined through the lens of real-world science. Young readers will appreciate the comic-book style illustrations juxtaposed with real-world photographs, and information that is offered in short paragraphs. Accessible and appealing, this is sure to be a popular addition to public and school libraries’ STEM collections.

"For children to be amazed at the technological innovations!
This fun and fantastic educational book teaches children about different technological advances by associating them with Superman's powers.
It contains historical information on the practical application of scientific knowledge that result in important advances for humanity. It is not only our children to learn and be well informed, increase their knowledge and culture, but they can visualize the importance of generating knowledge is a collective effort where many people have participated. Accordingly, we can also cultivate the values of cooperation, teamwork, perseverance, contribution, creative application of scientific knowledge, among others, at par the children are astonished at the practical and novel applications of science.
My gratitude to the Publisher and NetGalley for allowing me to review the book

" this book gives a smattering of superficial scientific facts on flight, sight, speed and strength " said.

" Very neat science book. Something my nephews will love, a solid introduction to STEM for young kids. " said.

"I really like how this book was laid out. Both graphically and the way the information was presented. Just in the section on flight they break down gravity, if Superman’s cape is like a set of wings, and even how Superman is like, but different from a maple seed. The book is a little bit long, but things are broken up so nicely that the reader can stop and start when they want/need. Topics covered include flight, sight, speed, strength. I think this is a great book to get kids interested in STEM science, while appealing to their desire to be superheroes." said.

"Superman Science is an amazing book that uses Superman’s powers to show you how science works! The book uses modern science to teach you how some of Superman’s powers can be a reality, such as flight (which we already accomplished), strength, and speed! Did you know the Anna’s hummingbird experiences 10 g’s when it pulls up from a dive? If you were launched into space in a rocket, you would only feel 8 g’s! There are many other facts like this, some for fun and others for science! Superman Science is the book for Superman fans and science lovers combined! If you AREN’T a Superman fan or science lover? I still recommend this book to you! Just crack open the pages and get ready to be amazed!
