SuperKids by Anya Damiron
SuperKids is a multi-award winning picture book about finding our own super powers, that motivates us to always look for the good in others.
In addition to a Gold Mom’s Choice Award, this book won a Gold Medal Moonbeam Award in 2015, a silver medal at the Independent Publisher Book Awards 2016, and two Gold medals on the Elit Awards 2016, for best children’s Ebook (7 & under) and Best book website.
It’s a book with wonderful illustrations that shows abilities that people with special needs can develop, instead of what they cannot do. It’s a fun book about inclusion, respect, and love. It’s anti-bullying, and it teaches kids to respect diversity. Plus it helps kids feel great about being exactly who they are.
Dare to find and highlight the positive not only in others, but also in yourself. Because we all have weaknesses and abilities that make us unique!
This is not just a book, it’s a Dominican movement to promote inclusion!

“Entertaining, Enlightening and Appealing!”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Susan Barton
Ivan is a very active child with a very active imagination. He enjoys creating and wearing super hero capes from just about anything he can get his hands on and racing through the house to save the day.
Ivan’s parents provide him with an actual cape of his own and he then becomes Super Ivan. When he happens upon a little boy whose super power is unique way of painting Ivan tries it himself, but is unsuccessful. Super Ivan’s parents understand his curiosity and introduce him to many other children who are similar to the little painter.
Although this is a serious subject – children with disabilities – the illustrations of Ivan attempting to grab household items to use as capes are truly funny. I giggled out loud several times. I’m sure kids will think they‘re hilarious. The author then makes a seamless transition from lighthearted to more serious as the book progresses.
While the vocabulary is a little advanced for young children, it works, since it gives adults the opportunity to explain new concepts to children and children can learn as they read along. The illustrations are detailed, colorful and charming.
I honestly think there are too few children’s books that address disabilities. This is something that deserves a lot more discussion, so kudos for Anya Damiron for sharing this story. She does it in an enlightening and appealing manner.
“SuperKids” would make a wonderfully educational circle time book to share in class, or an engaging and informative book for parents to read to kids at home. I highly recommend this book!
