Everyday Superheroes


SuperbatIn Superbat, Pat the bat wants to be a superhero. The trouble is he has no special powers and the other bats just laugh at him, but when Pat hears a mouse in distress, he learns that sometimes you just have to use the abilities you already have to make a difference, and that makes you a superhero!

Listed below are more early readers and picture books (both print and e-books) about people going the extra mile to help out other that you can check out with your IndyPL library card. The characters do amazing and heroic things, but they do them without super strength or the ability to fly. Sometimes it is a person's job to help people or perform rescues, but sometimes, people are heroes just caring about ad taking care of the people around them. They are regular everyday heroes, just like you!
