Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read Aloud! As the parent of a fledgling stuttering superhero, my family and I love reading and re-reading Kim Block’s new book. As my daughter learns to embrace her identity as a person who stutters, and comes to better know the strengths she has to offer others, she recognizes many similarities between herself and Melissa: They both have a strong desire to connect with others and be ‘helpers’ or young leaders. They both enjoy problem solving, and are creative thinkers. Melissa has many gifts to offer us, including her kind, honest approach to helping us ‘fluenters’ learn how to overcome our bouts of Interrupt-itis. In my experience as an elementary classroom teacher as well, I love how Adventure #1 beautifully illustrates the idea that as communities we can (and do!) support and celebrate diversity. Melissa has the strength within to navigate difficult moments in her life, and to help others grow and learn how they can be members of supportive, caring communities. The young children I teach respond so positively to Melissa’s experiences, and to how she explores her community of helpers on her quest to cure Interrupt-itis. Adventures of a Stuttering Superhero – Adventure #1 Interrupt-itis is a must read aloud for every classroom and for every family who stutters. It celebrates the Superhero in each of us.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book for kids This is a great book for all kids - not just kids who stutter. It's great to see a kid's book about a person stutters.
