    Book Review: Sports Heroes of Rainbow Road Growing up in the Fifties, it was Superman (and Supergirl) with their magical powers of strength that could best the evildoers and save the world for "Truth, Justice, and the American Way;" twenty years later, my older children hero worshiped Steve Austin the Bionic Man (and the girls all wanted to be Jamie, the Bionic Woman); and by the Eighties, my younger daughters would get up at the crack of dawn to see the latest episode of Power Rangers. All were Book Review: Sports Heroes of Rainbow Road Growing up in the Fifties, it was Superman (and Supergirl) with their magical powers of strength that could best the evildoers and save the world for "Truth, Justice, and the American Way;" twenty years later, my older children hero worshiped Steve Austin the Bionic Man (and the girls all wanted to be Jamie, the Bionic Woman); and by the Eighties, my younger daughters would get up at the crack of dawn to see the latest episode of Power Rangers. All were fantasy heroes dedicated to fighting evil, championing the underdog, and ensuring justice for the victims of crime. Today's children have a new series of books which teach moral values through super-powered characters...this time using children of their own age. Robert Thornhill was intrigued when his grandson wrote a book as a second grade year-end assignment. Blake told a story about two children who meet a leprechaun with a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Building on Blake's idea, Robert fine-tuned the story in Super Secrets of Rainbow Road, the first of a series of books based on this theme. This was followed by Super Powers of Rainbow Road, Hawaiian Rainbows and Patriotic Rainbows. After being injured in a baseball game (because he was careless and didn't really listen to his parents), Blake thinks he will miss the championship game. In Book 5, Sports Heroes of Rainbow Road, Blake gets an extra day to heal after an unexpected rain storm cancels the tournament. However, he's not too hurt that he and his younger sister, Breonna (the real grandchildren of Thornhill), can't hop on the Rainbow Road, a multi-colored twisty-curvy stream like a waterslide ride, found at the end of the rainbow, to the green bed of Lucky Leprechaun, the keeper of the Pot of Gold. These gold coins are not for money...they empower the recipient of the coin to have a special ability to do super-power things! Lucky gives Blake the coin of Invincibility, but warns him that he's not ready to stop speeding bullets or halt a freight train like Superman. With the previously earned powers of X-ray Vision and Strength (Blake), and Super Hearing and Truth (Breonna), the children use their powers to help a new friend in a football game beat a team that is purposely trying to hurt the players in order to win. Oh, and just for good measure, they also help capture two thieves that tied up the people in the concession stand (their new friend's parents) and took the money. Just all in a day's work for these two Super Heroes. Check out this story to see if Blake's team wins the tournament after they get home again! Blake and Breonna are not perfect children, but they want to be good, as do most real children. The lessons they are learning from their parents, along with the lessons learned by using Lucky's gold coins, are gently taught to the reader in an environment that is fanciful and exciting. The illustrations are in Black & White, which allows the more creative child to color them as s/he imagines they should look. This is nice touch that draws children even closer into the stories and lets them take pride of ownership in the book. These books would make great gifts as one volume, or as a set, for children in the primary grades who can begin to read the stories to themselves and younger siblings. They do follow a chronological order as each new book builds on the one before, so those who buy might want to start with Book 1 and work their way forward. Looks like the new generation has a new set of heroes!

    I GIVE THIS BOOK: 2 1/2 out of 5 stars I received a .pdf version of this book so I do not know what the coloring and pictures look like throughout the book, but if it is anything like the cover, I would take a guess and say it would be good enough to add an extra 1/2 star. Again, while the plot of the story is good, it is not appropriate for children. This one involves robbers with guns. Then there is the added use of telephone wire. As an adult, I would not touch wires from a telephone pole and I GIVE THIS BOOK: 2 1/2 out of 5 stars I received a .pdf version of this book so I do not know what the coloring and pictures look like throughout the book, but if it is anything like the cover, I would take a guess and say it would be good enough to add an extra 1/2 star. Again, while the plot of the story is good, it is not appropriate for children. This one involves robbers with guns. Then there is the added use of telephone wire. As an adult, I would not touch wires from a telephone pole and I most certainly would not want my child messing around with them. The worst part is when eight-year-old Blake chased a robber who pointed a gun at him! It seems the more times Blake and Breonna visit Lucky, the more dangerous the task. Granted, these kids have super powers, but I do not think these stories are the best to showcase the power. It is one thing to find the creature stealing the cookies but another to chase after a man with a gun! However, I am still excited to see what adventures await for Blake and Breonna as I continue to read the series. Until next time, live life one page at a time!
