Captain America: The Ultimate Guide to the First Avenger

DK Canada

How can you not love Captain America? He is one of my favourite Marvel super hero. He started off as a kind but small young man and with his bravery he turns into the ultimate hero for his country. In Captain America: The Ultimate Guide to the First Avenger we learn everything and anything there is to know about this special hero.Captain America: The Ultimate Guide to the First Avenger

About Captain America: The Ultimate Guide to the First Avenger

Follow Steve Rogers’ journey from the sickly and small Army volunteer to  leader of the Avengers as well as his biggest adventures, battles, allies, and foes. Marvel’s Captain America: The Ultimate Guide to the First Avenger focuses on some of the character’s most famous comic book arcs, starting from the 1941 debut of Captain America Comics  to modern day.

This book also features a foreword by renowned former president and chairman of Marvel Comics Stan Lee, Stan Lee, this book is the essential reading for any Captain America fan.

Our Thoughts

Well, our youngest so is the ultimate Captain fan, like seriously he wears his Captain costume everywhere. He was his brother’s school mascot, he plays at the park in his costume and if you are not careful you may just get a shield thrown at you as he practices his Captain throw. So I could not wait to see what he thought about the book.

So what did he think? He LOVED it! The book is in hardcover and is quite large, probably just smaller than a binder. The pictures were large, amazing and true to Marvel format. The inside facts were all new to us and we learned a lot about his character as he evolved over the years. You are able to watch as Captain starts from his humble but brave beginnings to become the saviour that America needed during this time period. We learn about his uniform, his shield, his loves, his support and we even learn how Captain changes from decade to decade as his character evolved.

The book is full of amazing facts and pictures that any Marvel fan and collector would love. Our son truly cherishes this book and will pop it out nightly so that we can read a few pages from it each night before he goes to bed. This is a definite must have for the Avenger and Captain America fan in your home!

You can purchase a copy of the book on Amazon.

#LetsTalkRESPS with CST on May 5th

When I gave birth to my children it was  magical time for us. I could not believe how much love I had for them and how I wanted them to have everything that I could possibly provide for them. This is why it was so important for me to open them up RESP accounts. I wanted to ensure they had every opportunity to access higher education without fear of debt.

RESPs give parents the ability to save monthly for your child’s post secondary education without causing a financial strain on the family budget, I choose what I want to pay monthly into their accounts and if we need to pull back a little for a couple of months this has always been okay. The best part is anyone can contribute to your child’s RESP, which makes the perfect birthday and Christmas gifts (especially as they get older and you can’t imagine another toy in your home!).
