Local Phinney Ridge author Sara Crow struggled to get her three sons to take off their superhero costumes for bedtime. Considering this a problem many parents may relate to, it became the perfect inspiration for a children’s book. Sara assured her kiddos that even superhero’s have to sleep, hoping that the sentiment would calm their energetic imaginations.
Even Superheroes Have to Sleep focuses on that very idea, that even after an eventful day of saving the world and escaping evil, we all must take a nightly break and rest ourselves for the next day of adventure. Rhyming prose featuring a pirate, a princess, and a superhero are paired with creative and colorful illustrations. The end result makes this book the perfect bedtime story for any boy or girl.
Even Superheroes Have to Sleep is currently available on Kickstarter. Crow plans to self publish the book with the help of the crowdfunding site. “After writing the book and finding an established, published illustrator – I wanted to focus on getting the book into children’s hands not have it sit in a stack on a publishers desk” she stated.
