Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Brave Rooney is an interactivity-packed storybook that carries the message to kids that everyone has a special talent that makes him or her a superhero. Kids can read the story on their own or have a narrator read it to them, and they can interact with more than 50 animated features on 23 pages. Rooney's story about going to a new school full of traditional superheroes and finding his own unique superpower is an encouraging storybook for all kids wondering if they measure up to their peers.
Is it any good?
Especially for kids looking to find their place in a school or social group, BRAVE ROONEY is an encouraging, important story. Rooney, who lives on the borders of NormalVille and MajesticVille, has to go to school this year with the kids in MajesticVille and doesn't seem to measure up. He finally finds his own talent in a story that will resonate with any kid (or adult) who has had the experience of feeling less talented than others in his or her peer group.
