Although my daughter is slightly older than the target audience for this book, I handed it to her to read and she was very impressed with the exercises provided for kids. A lovely way to convey the concept of self-confidence to kids and beautifully illustrated.
It was a perfect book on a day that we just went over how important it was to do the best you can in school, to not be afraid to ask questions and to be kind. It supported every aspect of our conversation
I like these books that the author has written to help children gain positive skills in life.
This one is about confidence. A young boy named Leo doesn’t feel confident about his skills. He thinks he’s not a good artist or a good basketball player.
His parents are very supportive and encouraging. He feels loved at home. His mother helps him with his art project to build a spaceship.
His father helps him do some basketball drills to gain confidence in his basketball game. Leo also stands up for a boy who is being teased who is on the basketball team. This friendship leads to a nice partnership where they both practice their basketball skills together.
Leo is feeling confident and gaining skills to help him in school and sports.
This book is a nice reminder for even us adults! As a child I was extremely shy and lacked confidence myself. Having a nurturing home and access to books like this can really make a difference for children.
The rhyming story and beautiful illustrations really compliment this story which is so important and relevant for all kids to hear. Confidence is my Superpower is a keeper! Great to remind parents about their superpowers, too, and how to support their kids through struggles.
Leo is a little boy with self-esteem problems. The reader meets him after Leo has a particularly bad day with his basketball game. Leo feels he has no talent in sports or art. His parents tell him to try his best and use his imagination. He begins to feel more self-confident after taking a few basketball lessons, but that doubt is always present. Through hard work and his parents' love, Leo learns to be responsible, brave, helpful, and supportive to others.
I especially like the affirmation cards enclosed that provide a support base for children who have self-esteem issues. The only reason I knocked off one star is that the size of the text in the kindle edition is difficult to read even when enlarged and, at times, the rhymes seem a bit forced.
Alicia Ortego’s superpower books are great! This one helps children to be confident in themselves and if they fail at something, as long as they did their best, it’s okay because they can try again.
Leonardo feels like he has failed at sports and making a rocket. After working with his parents, he learns to believe in himself and to change his negative feelings into positive ones. After his parents help him, he feels like a winner!
The story is told in rhymes. The illustrations are colorful and detailed. It’s a fun book to read!
This is a wonderful way for children to learn about confidence. It is so important to believe in ourselves and it is a lesson that everyone needs to embrace.
