ant man and the wasp movie
Did you go see ANT MAN & THE WASP at the movie theater this weekend? Of course we did! While these may be the smallest sized characters in the Marvel cinematic universe they are two of the biggest when it comes to being my family's favorite comic book movie heroes.  If you know a child who appreciates Ant Man and the Wasp as much as my kids do and is an early reader, here are two super books from Disney Book Group to look for.  These books are sure to get children interested in doing some summer reading!

World of Reading: Marvel Super Hero Adventures -- Meet Ant Man & Wasp

This Level 1 book is meant for children in pre-school through first grade focuses on reading sentences and learning sight words.  This 32 page book is full of interesting illustrations to capture a kid's attention and help her or him understand the story. Most of the pages have one simple sentence to read.  With simple text and word repetition this is a great book to help beginner readers navigate through a story at just the right pace for their skill level.

A great book for children that are just starting to read or that may be having some learning difficulties. Ant Man and the Wasp is an exciting adventure story that provides a reward for finishing it with a sticker sheet on the last page of the book.  My kids are Middle Grade readers now but they loved flipping through the pages of Meet Ant Man and the Wasp looking at the artwork and thought the stickers were great.


An Early Chapter Book: Marvel Super Hero Adventures -- Buggin' Out!

Children who have moved up to reading stories with a paragraph or two per page will enjoy this book meant for students from first through fourth grade.  This 11 chapter, 77 page book tells an amazing tale about how Spider Man teams up with Ant Man and the Wasp to save a school science fair from the evil Doctor Octopus.  The authors do a spectacular job of telling the story in a way that is relatable to young readers full of humorous scenarios and adventurous moments.  The book is also full of wonderful illustrations that compliment the story and encourage kids to keep reading through the text.


My son and daughter were drawn in by the cover art to read this book and it put a big smile on both of their faces.  I love it when they want to do summer reading rather than my having to pester them to do it during their break from school.  Buggin Out! absolutely gets A Geek Daddy nod of approval.  In fact, both of these books do! Available at major book retailers ranging from Barnes & Noble to Walmart.
