Downtown Bookworks has released today a new DC Comics themed activity book, Color Me Powerful, which features Wonder Woman, Batgirl, and other DC Universe women and girls.

“I don’t think there can ever be enough fun, empowering titles for young women and girls,” said author Sarah Parvis. “Color Me Powerful offers a little bit for everyone. Readers can answer questions about their talents and what makes them unique. They can design their own logo and cape, color in beloved characters, sketch super hero scenes, create their own super hero identity, and identify the characteristics that make super heroes—and themselves—strong. In the book, I encourage the readers to express themselves in any way they want to. They can draw their answers or write them out in words. Or take pictures and tape them into the book—whatever makes them feel most creative. They can write words backward or in code or draw doodles and color on every page.”
