Even Superheroes Make Mistakes by Shelly Becker


Back of Book:
Even superheroes sometimes slip up and err. And when that happens, do they say, “It’s not FAIR?” or give up in despair? NO! “Ashamed Superheroes who goofed up somehow . . . First STOP . . . then CONSIDER what’s best to do now.” Whether they’ve nabbed the wrong guy by mistake or bashed into a planet while zooming through space, all superheroes ‘fess up their mess-up, get on with their day, and keep on saving the world in the most super way!
I received a copy of this picture book from Sterling Book Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
I was so excited to see another story in Shelly Beckers superhero series. My students loved her first book and were just as excited to read another story about these hard working superheroes. This story is a perfect read aloud for a growth mindset project. It shares several examples of how superheroes mess up or fall short in what they are trying to accomplish. There are great reminders within the pages of how blaming others for your mistakes is never a good idea. The rhyming scheme allows the story to flow and lets readers follow along. The illustrations by Eda Kaban are full of color and detail. My students enjoyed this book very much and so did I. It is a perfect addition to any growth mindset unit!
