Phoebe had enjoyed other superhero books we’ve shared so I thought she’s like this one. We talked about what superpowers she would like, and she said she would like to be invisible to stop the baddies (she often talks about being invisible – she has an invisible imaginary friend called Dink!) Phoebe loved the idea of dressing up as a superhero – she wore her own tee shirt and leggings, and thought it was funny to wear a pair of pants on top. She borrowed her sister’s sparkly wellies and we pinned on a pillowcase as a cloak. Then we made a badge like Milly in the story – Phoebe is learning to write her name so was able to add a big letter P. She had fun striking poses and saying superhero words from the story like ‘Bam!’ and ‘Kaboom!’ We talked about what superhero name she would choose, she decided on ‘Fantastic Phoebe.’ When her grandad asked what her superpower was she said ‘helping people’ so I think she understood the message in the story – and had lots of superhero fun!
