Madeleine Sherak, Ph.D., is presently on staff at Pepperdine University in Malibu, California where she is a field supervisor of student teachers in their teacher education program. What makes a superhero? It is size or strength? Maybe it is brains?  On the other hand, an overexposure to gamma radiation can turn you into a green rage monster. Superheroes take on a mythical demeanor, which we feel we cannot emulate, but that is the lie. Everyday people can do extraordinary things. Madeleine Sherak shares her new children’s book “Superheroes Club” and shows the actions of small group of kids willing to make a difference.
