• Thank you for joining us today as we read Super-Pets Showdown, written by Sarah Hines Stephens and illustrated by Art Baltazar. This action-packed book stars the underdog super-pet Proty, who learns that strength and speed aren’t always the most important traits when it comes to saving the day! We hope you enjoy these activities based on the book as well.
