Even Superheroes Get Scared (Even Superheroes #3)

by Shelly Becker (Author) Eda Kaban (Illustrator)

Even Superheroes Get Scared (Even Superheroes #3)
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

When Superheroes feel worried or scared,
When they fret, when they sweat, when they feel unprepared . . .
They could run off screeching, they could but they don't.
Because real superheroes just wouldn't, they won't.

Even superheroes get scared sometimes. When that happens, do they run and hide? NO! They acknowledge the feeling, then choose to be brave! There are villains to fight and cities to save! Young readers can follow the superheroes' examples and take deep breaths, ask for help, and face new challenges.
