This summer I picked up a book for the superhero basket we have in our classroom. The book is called Dex The Heart of a Hero. The first words you read about Dex on the back of the book are: Everything about Dex was little--except for his dreams. Dex, like many young boys and girls, enjoys imagining himself as a superhero. In fact, he studies comics, movies and books to learn everything he can about superheroes. He runs up garbage mountains and vaults over curbs to build up his muscles and dresses as a superhero. Dex began putting out trash fires, saving animals from sewers and organizing neighborhood clean up days. The story ends with a creative superhero save involving the neighborhood cat. This story was a hit when I shared it for read aloud this year and I know the kids will appreciate having a class copy.
