Super powers are more like super challenges. Not a good read for autistic children
Reviewed in the United States on March 7, 2019
I didn't like this book very much and neither did my kids. It was like an educated adult, who doesn't associate with kids, attempted to write a children's book in a child's point of view and failed miserably. If you're not around kids much, it's hard to explain something complicated to a child. The author had good intent, but they just suck at relating to kids. There are too many big words and too much explanation on one page. My kids lost interest and when my autistic child was listening to it, it seemed to dampen his mood. It was focusing a bit too much on the challenges of autism than the actual superpowers. The superpowers listed were more like names for the struggles of autism and I think it made my son feel like a problem child instead of a superhero. I thought for sure that this book was going to be super positive because I think my child is a superhero, and I thought this would be a perfect way to explain how awesome he is. But it absolutely wasn't. It was very dull and a bit too negative for children. I would suggest looking into an autism spectrum book by a different author. The picture is just one of the many pages. Most of the pages are like this. It's just not appealing to children. This is more of an adult read that might interest adults, but not children.
