I Want to Be a Superhero
Breanna Humes, Ambelin Kwaymullina
Beautifully told and illustrated story of Breanna, who wants to be a superhero. She asks family and friends if she can become a superhero by wishing upon a shooting star. She tries but it doesn’t work. Breanna is finally happy with the idea of working hard and becoming a superhero doctor, lawyer, engineer or vet. But she still wants to fly!
Breanna wrote this story when she was 8 years old and wanted to fly.
This beautiful story celebrates superheroes in all their forms. It allows children to aspire to be an everyday superhero, and especially during this difficult time, it celebrates those who work to help us all.
I want children to understand that If you put your mind to it you can become whatever you want. It’s all about working and studying hard to be the superhero you want to be.
