The Purim Superhero: A Jewish-Holiday Themed Picturebook With A Two-Dad Family... And A Nice Story About Being True To Yourself (And Still Being Super!)

The Purim Superhero by Elisabeth Kushner, Illustrated by Mike Byrne

Nate loves aliens and he really wants to wear an alien costume for Purim, but his friends are all dressing as superheroes and he wants to fit in. What will he do? With the help of his two dads (and his big sister) he makes a surprising decision.

With Purim a week away, it's great to add this title to my list of picture books I wish had been read to me when I was a little kid! Especially as it's been touted as "the first LGBT inclusive Jewish children’s book in English!"
