Chicken Soup for the Soul KIDS: The Sunshine Squad is about the adventures of six friends–Oliver, Mia, Lilly, Lucas, Sophie and little Tommy who live in the same building. The kids form a sunshine squad to become heroes, just like their comic book heroes. Each child has his / her own talent, except for little Tommy, who feels sad as he feels he lacks any real talent. The other kids encourage him to explore and discover his super power. In the end, his discovery makes him feel special and gives him a sense of belonging.
Like all Chicken Soup stories, this too is soothing and well narrated. It has a beautiful message of highlighting our differences, accepting one’s uniqueness and spreading kindness. Our uniqueness makes us special, and we should not be shy or ashamed of accepting it.
Early readers can read this book on their own. The illustrations are cute, colorful, inclusive and diverse.
I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
