"I Can Be A Superhero During A Lockdown is one of the best safety books I have read in a long time... if not of all time! This is such a serious subject that many don't know how to talk to kids about. Copeland broke the important pieces down so kids can understand them. Kids get scared, even when we practice drills, however Copeland incorporates the Superhero image so well that kids will feel like they have a responsibility to listen and follow directions. This is a must read for anyone!" Jessica Woody, M.S., Ed., Elementary School Counselor
