Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s the . . . SUN!

When morning comes, a young boy must prepare for his day, faster than a speeding bullet. Follow along as he leaps tall buildings (jumps out of bed) in a single bound, dons his heroic uniform (his clothes), and faces his greatest weakness (Kryptonite-colored toothpaste). Then it’s up, up, and away to daycare! Includes a morning routine checklist.

Good Morning, Superman! is a really cute book. A little boy is getting ready for the day and everything he does is mirrored by something Superman does. For example, as the little boy gets dressed, Superman reveals his costume. The boy eats his breakfast, gathering his strength, as Superman flies above the buildings, getting ready to fight the bad guys. Even the boy’s sister gets in on the act in her Supergirl costume, handing him his lunchbox, because helpers are super heroes too.

The illustrations are bright and fun, just like the cover. It’s a perfect book for any superhero loving pre-schooler. It may even help with the morning routine.
