Nathan is always excited when Nana Cassandra visits him. Sometimes they go to the park, sometimes they play video games and sometimes they go to the movies. In Nathan and Nana Cassandra – Superheroes by Karen Gorback, something different happens the next time Nana Cassandra visits Nathan. She tells him that since he has grown they can do something very special; that is fixing the problems in the neighborhood like superheroes. Nana Cassandra teaches Nathan the words for 'good deed' in Arabic, Hebrew, and Spanish. They first go to deliver food to another grandma in the neighborhood who cannot shop by herself. Helping other people and pets in the neighborhood is making Nathan feel good.

It is a story with a good message that will encourage children to get involved in social work and community service. Nathan sets a good example to young readers with the work he is doing in the neighborhood to help neighbors and pets. The illustrations in the book make the concept clear to young readers and will help them connect better with the work done by Nathan and Nana Cassandra. The characters of Nana Cassandra and Nathan are real and relatable and they will motivate and inspire many readers to do community service, social work, and help people living in their neighborhood. Storybooks like this are good for young readers as they spread positive thoughts and messages, and should be introduced to children at home and school by parents, teachers, and educators so that they will also be inspired to become superheroes like Nathan and Nana Cassandra.
