My near-3-year-old daughter loves this book immensely and it's a fun intro to some (but hardly all) of the strong and capable female heroes of the DC universe. Thanks to her aunt and uncle for gifting it to her last Yuletide! ( )

I had mixed feelings about this book after reading it. I liked the book because it discussed girl powers and I think that it is important to have both male and female superheroes. It also explained that the super heroines had powers such as being “strong and kind” or “smart” and “brave”. These are all great characteristics for girls to have. But, I did not like this book because in a way, it made it seem like in order for girls to have these traits, they had to be super heroines. For example, every page includes a new super heroine and listed her powers. The illustrations are of females in costumes/masks, and some pages even express that the girls come from other places like “planet Krypton” or “Atlantis, under the sea”. It makes me question whether normal girls from Earth can have super powers or not. Overall, the message of “Girl Power” is a great theme to relay to children, but the characters are not believable.
