“Superpowered can talk to and encourage my son in ways I always wished I could, but didn’t know how.” - Edgar, a father of three
“We must do a better job of meeting the social and emotional learning needs of our youth, and this book is a great place to start.

“I go back to Superpowered regularly to find tools for whatever hurts that day.” - Lacey, middle school student
“Superpowered is incredible! I wish I had this book as a kid! As a child I felt so lost and misunderstood with my own generalized/social anxiety, and this would have helped me feel more seen. Written using soft, supportive, and encouraging language, Superpowered helps my students show up as themselves.” - Kelly, Certified School Psychologist
“Whether you are struggling with anxiety, low self-esteem or negative-self talk… this book will change your life. Very easy to understand and breaks down complex anxiety into strength-based strategies!” - Clare, 4th grade teacher
“As a therapist, I found the descriptions of anxiety in Superpowered are very digestible, relatable and hopeful. I love the direct quotes and poems from other kids, which helps students connect with their peers and makes them feel less alone. The exercises help kids open up and discuss their own thoughts and feelings, knowing there are others out there who feel the same as they do.” - Noelle, school counselor
