The Book

This wonderful book teaches a very valuable life lesson.  The Sunshine Squad is composed of five diverse friends ( and one little brother ) who make a decision to become superheroes.  Their imaginations flourish as they disclose the unique superpower their natural talents dictate.    

"If I had a superpower," Oliver says, "it would be making things come to life with my pencil.  If a monster ever attacks our street, I'll draw a trap.  POW!" 

"Oh, I get it," Mia says.  " With my skateboard, I'd spin into a tornado and blow the monster away. BAM! So long, Stinky!" 

Oliver, Mia, Lilly, Lucas and Sophie all declare their powers but poor   little brother Tommy feels left out and sad because he is doesn't fit in with the big kids and he doesn't have a superpower to announce. 

As the day progresses Tommy helps out his neighbours at 123 Sunshine Street and happily discovers his superpower is showing care and kindness to others around him. It is a very powerful and appreciated power making him a real hero in his neighbourhood.  

The illustrations are colourful, vibrant and full of emotion.  The message of the book is positive and inspiring.   "The Sunshine Squad" highlights that each and every person has talents to share and we all should celebrate our uniqueness and differences.  I highly recommend this book.
