The Adventures of Super Obi: Nothing to Fear

Official Book Trailer

Kirkus Review

Starred Review

★ "In this fun tale, Okonkwo writes in simple sentences, broken into paragraphs that frequently feature internal rhymes (“bed” / “forehead” / “said”). A few more challenging vocabulary words (mysterious, imagination) make this story appropriate for emergent readers, especially those who still get nervous in the dark. Obi’s understandable fears and growing confidence should comfort children who have had similar experiences... An engaging family tale with eye-catching illustrations."

Starred Review

★ "The Adventures of Super Obi: Nothing to Fear, is a compassionate look at some of the fears we all face from time to time. The plot follows a young boy’s growing fears as his imagination takes over once the lights go out for the night. The plot thickens as each image he sees magnifies in scale until poor Obi can’t take it anymore and calls out for help. Like seeking God’s power, love and protection, young children reach out to those closest to them, their parents. Along with delightful illustrations, bright and colorful, the author helps young readers understand that they are not alone and with God on their side, they have their own secret superpower. The story ends with suggestions for a short quiet time and prayer time. Children will feel their superpowers with this interactive activity, just like Obi. Beautifully told and presented."

Starred Review

★ "The Adventures of Super Obi: Nothing to Fear is a beautifully written picture book that will captivate young children and teach them that fear is normal and that you can overcome your fears through prayer and trust in God. The charismatic character of Obi will spark children’s imaginations and encourage them to face their fears." 

We Love Obi! Read this to my boys tonight and they were so engaged! They said they loved the monsters and the daddy in the story. This momma especially loved the prayer and scriptures at the end. They allowed for great conversation at the end. Great story and beautiful illustrations! My boys asked me to buy it! Already on its way!😊
