Batman: The Brave and the Bold Adapted by Jade Ashe
Recommended Preschool to 2nd Grade
In my library young boys are always looking for super hero books. Parents can be wary because at times super hero books are way above their reading level and violent. This book is filled cartoon pictures of Batman and his friends. They help each other fight crime and even talk about some of them when they were young. The sentences are short with one to two sentences on each page. The vocabulary is appropriate for young readers while the story has enough action to keep them interested. The corresponding pictures are on every page accentuated by a bold green background. This book adapted by Jade Ashe is perfect for these fans who are learning to read on their own. It is also a good choice for preschoolers with shorter attention span, who still wants their super hero fix met. It was checked out by a kindergarten patron as soon as I showed it to him.
