"Can I tell you something about this school? You see this isn’t a regular school. This is a superhero school..." 

First days can be tough, especially for someone as shy as Mikey but Mikey’s new school is a little different. On his first day, he meets his principal and some incredible children who help him discover his own superpower within and he learns that no matter what we may look like on the outside, everyone has something that makes them valuable. 

Can Mikey learn to use his newfound superpower to make his school a better place for all students?

My Review
Mike Nero and the Superhero School is a lovely children's book that should be on every parent's shelf, and in every school library. It's an important book that is easy for children to read and understand while also making an impact (and possibly opening a dialogue with their parents about differences and disabilities). As the twin sister to a deaf person, and as the parent to an autistic child, this book really resonated with me and made me feel good. It's nice to see a children's book showing kids who may be a little bit different because they have a disability (also known as a super power within the pages of this book). The artwork is wonderful, and it really brings the story to life. 
Mike is a little boy with cerebral palsy, and he's nervous about going to a new school. Will he have trouble fitting in? Making friends? But when Mike gets to school with his parents, he discovers something really neat: it's a "superhero" school that caters to children just like Mike. 
Even the principal has a superpower that makes him different. 
The story also touches on how kindness can be a superpower. Just because a child may be different or have a disability doesn't make them any less, and they deserve kindness and caring just as much as everyone else. Absolutely wonderful.
I would highly recommend this book to everyone. Parents, teachers, caregivers, etc. A must-have for any bookshelf.
5 stars!
