superheroes model the difference between what they feel like doing and what the "super" thing to do really is.

"Instead they dig down to their super-best part,
the strong super-powers contained in their heart!"

This book is great for the classroom because it teaches the students about even super heroes have bad days and they still get through them. So if they even have bad days then its okay to have them as well. ( )

Although superheroes have bad days just like the rest of us, they don't use their superpowers in a destructive way, no matter how badly they are feeling. So the narrator of this rhyming picture-book romp assures us, describing all the chaos they could cause, but don't, because superheroes "just wouldn't."

An entertaining look at the negative emotions that accompany a really bad day, from anger to grief, Even Superheroes Have Bad Days offers a positive super-heroic example for young children on how to deal with and control those feelings. Author Shelly Becker's text has a nice cadence to it, while the accompanying artwork by illustrator Eda Kaban is colorful and full of humor. Recommended to all superhero-obsessed youngsters, as well as to any child (read: all of them) that struggles from time to time to handle their own anger and frustration. ( )

This book is about superheroes on their worst days. But even though they have really bad days and are in really bad moods, they still dont’t get super angry, they go on and keep saving people. ( )

This book is about how superheroes can have bad days. It is informational on how to have healthy alternatives to having tantrums. I would use this for K-1st grade. Illustrations: mixed media ( )

You are each Superheroes, saving the world in your most super way! -- S.B.

First words
When superheroes don't get their way, when they're sad, when they're mad, when they have a bad day . . .  . . . they could use super-powers to kick, punch, and pound.
When superheroes
don't get their way
when they're sad,
when they're mad,
when they've had a bad day . . .
. . .They could super-rampage -- they could, but theybr>
Instead they dig down to their super-best part,
the strong super-powers contained in their heart!

And using their talents as true heroes should,
they battle the urge to do harm (though they could).
They acknowledge their sorrown their anger, their pain,
as they wait for their super-emotions to wane.

Book description
Just like the rest of us, superheroes have bad days.   They could use super-powers to cause a big scene.  Or run amok and act super-mean.  But even whe they'er really, REALLY mad, they can't -- they won't act super-bad.

This fabulously fun rhyming book show how superheroes find a way to get a grip on their emotions.   They can do it . . . and so can you.  [book jacket]
