The origin story of the Man of Steel is condensed for children here. The language is straightforward, and the pictures are large and colorful. Superman is a good role model for children, even without the use of superpowers. This is a good read for elementary age children who are interested in superheroes. ( )

It?s a bird! It?s a plane! It?s Superman!

All children love Superman, but until now, there hasn?t been a book written and illustrated specifically for the youngest fans of the earth?s greatest superhero. Ralph Cosentino?s Superman: The Story of the Man of Steel tells the tale of the caped crime fighter?s amazing journey from the planet Krypton to the town of Smallville, Kansas, to the big city of Metropolis. There he lives a double life as Clark Kent, mild-mannered journalist, and Superman, protector of humanity.

Told in simple, child-friendly language and illustrated with bright, bold artwork inspired by the originals, Superman is the perfect introduction to this beloved American icon.
