Book Review: Confidence is my Superpower by Alicia Ortego

Do you want your kid(s) to feel more confident and capable?

Every child faces low self-esteem and poor self-confidence at least once in their life. Children are often ready to give up on their goals, especially if they encounter obstacles and challenges. We must support them and teach them to believe in themselves.

Failure is the key to success.

After a series of failures at school, little Leonardo feels sad and disappointed. But, by interacting with his parents, he soon realizes that his superpower is, in fact, his self-confidence.

“I am loved! I can choose! I am brave! I am amazing!” These are just some of the mindful affirmations that will help little Leo to overcome difficult situations.

‘Confidence is my superpower’ will help your little ones:

  • believe in themselves and love themselves as they are,
  • overcome the fear of failure and understand that failures are one step on the path to success,
  • ace their negative feelings and turn them into positive ones,
  • look at life from a brighter side and never give up on their goals,
  • support each other and help those in need.

My Review

Alicia Ortego’s superpower books are great! This one helps children to be confident in themselves and if they fail at something, as long as they did their best, it’s okay because they can try again.

Leonardo feels like he has failed at sports and making a rocket. After working with his parents, he learns to believe in himself and to change his negative feelings into positive ones. After his parents help him, he feels like a winner!

The story is told in rhymes. The illustrations are colorful and detailed. It’s a fun book to read!

This is a wonderful way for children to learn about confidence. It is so important to believe in ourselves and it is a lesson that everyone needs to embrace.
