Today is National Superhero Day. Gloria wanted to celebrate. She dressed up for the big day. She wanted to be a Superhero.
I had a talk with Gloria. She needed to know that a real superhero doesn’t need a costume. She didn’t understand. Spider-Man and Wonder Woman wear a costume. Yes, but they are pretend. Real superheroes, like a dad, or a teacher, or a neighbor don’t always wear a costume. It’s what they do that makes them a Superhero.
Gloria was shocked. She hadn’t thought about that! We talked about what a real superhero does. Gloria decided just what she wants to do, too. It is touching. I hope you enjoy our conversation. Gloria really is the best.
P.S. For my new blog followers, Gloria is perhaps the most important person in my preschool classroom. Over the years she has brought more joy and wisdom to children than I could have ever imagined. She is the ‘real deal’, with the biggest heart of all. Children see her insides, not her outside. There is much I have written about Gloria on my blog, she has really good stories.
