Perfect Picture Book Friday
Super Manny Stands Up! (Atheneum Books for Young Readers, 2017) written by Kelly DiPucchio and illustrated by Stephanie Graegin is a book to cheer for. It’s cute and has a great message that doesn’t hit the reader over the head.
Manny wears all colors of capes and fights and wins many battles. At school he can only wear his invisible cape. His imaginary experiences help him be brave at school when it is needed.
I’m only sad I didn’t discover this book earlier. But there is a sequel now: Super Manny Cleans Up.

Ooh, I like this Manny. It’s a resonant name and a spunky character. I’ll adopt him 🙂
I’m always looking for superheroes. I’d forgotten about Manny.
