“Can I tell you something about this school? You see this isn’t a regular school. This is a superhero school…”
First days can be tough, especially for someone as shy as Mikey but Mikey’s new school is a little different. On his first day, he meets his principal and some incredible children who help him discover his own superpower within and he learns that no matter what we may look like on the outside, everyone has something that makes them valuable.
Can Mikey learn to use his newfound superpower to make his school a better place for all students?
Natasha is a wife and mother of two amazing rainbow babies. She resides in Trinidad and Tobago, where she works as an Itinerant Counsellor working in Youth and Guidance. She is the author of the award-winning Happy Tears and Rainbow Babies, which tells the story of how faith brought healing and hope to her family after the pain and loss of miscarriages. Her experience with grief and loss moved her to create avenues for other families in her country experiencing similar things. She is a contributing writer at pregnancyafterlosssupport.org and Her View from Home. Inspired by her son, Natasha wrote her newest book MIke Nero and the Superhero School which focuses on a young boy with special needs and how he comes to discover the superhero within himself. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking fancy restaurant meals at home and eating them in her pajamas.
To help children understand disabilities in children that they might meet in school, this book is perfectly written and illustrated. Mike Nero and the Superhero School is about a little boy who goes to a new school. Mike has Cerebral Palsy and has had a difficult time making friends at his former school. He can’t always participate in all the school activities, because he uses mobility aids for his walking. Everyone at the new school has a superpower. These aren’t the normal types of superheroes, but they all do have special ways that they handle life. I think that this is an extraordinarily wonderful book for all children to read. The illustrations are great and I recommend this book highly.
