New York Times Special Children’s Book Review Section

The New York Times publishes a special children’s book review section every November.  It was published today and can be accessed online at NYT Children's Book Reviews.  Because of the ages of three of my grandsons, I was especially interested in the review of three books under the title of Picture Books About Boys With Heroic Alter Egos. Roger Sutton reviews The Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man by Michael Chabon, The Amazing Adventures of Bumblebee Boy by David Soman and Jacky Davis and Superhero Joe by Jacqueline Preiss Weitzman. All three authors have written proven kid favorites. Chabon wrote The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay which about ten years ago was a favorite of my oldest grandson .  Bumblebee Boy was a character in Soman and Davis’s Ladybug Girl series. Weitzman earlier book was You Can’t take a Balloon into The Metropolitan Museum. One or more of these Superhero books might be just the one for your child.
