*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.

"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.

"In an age where it’s become increasingly important to instill more science and math in the younger generation this graphic novel could not have come at a better time. Kids LOVE super heroes so being able to use Superman to showcase the importance of science goes together as perfect as peanut butter and jelly. It’s an enlightening and enjoyable introduction to STEM for the young and young at heart.

The layout was well done with plenty of graphics to capture the visual attention while presenting the information in an educational yet easy to read manner. Using Superman and his powers to explain scientific concepts such as gravity, flight, etc really brings the information to life and makes what could be very dense, difficult to comprehend concepts manageable for a wide variety of age levels.

It’s a bit long for those on the younger end of the spectrum but it is thankfully broken up into smaller sections and topics so you could easily go over it in small bites to avoid attention overload. It is definitely one of those books that you can use in a wide variety of ways and return to time and again without boredom. It’s a must have for teachers and parents particularly if you then watch the latest Superman movies and apply the information from the book to what they see so you can increase the fun. Who says Hollywood can’t be educational? :-)
