Wonder Woman books can be a great way to introduce kids to the DC Comics heroine. Wonder Woman has been around since the 1940s, but after her hey day with a couple of television shows in the 1970s, she faded from prominence. Nowadays, young girls are more likely to look to the PowerPuff Girls or Lara Croft as their cartoon or adventure idols.

Though pop culture is always looking for the newest thing and aesthetics have changed significantly over the last few decades, Wonder Woman holds up as a viable and engaging hero. She was the first major female comic star, and in the words of her creator, William Marston, she was written to be a "good and beautiful woman." Her identity is deeply connected to the American identity and the ideals of our country, and she makes a great role model in any of her forms.

You can find Wonder Woman books written and drawn in several different ways. The original Wonder Woman was set in the 1940s, when the comic was first drawn, but there are a lot of modern adaptations, which try to make the plot issues slightly more relevant to today's world, and update the artwork to a more contemporary style. You can also find Wonder Woman in books with other popular DC characters like Superman, or with the entire Justice League.

Personalized Wonder Woman Books

If you want to find a really special gift for a child who is into comics, you might consider personalized Wonder Woman books. For children who feel as though their favorite characters are people they actually know, a book in which they interact with those characters can be a treasured favorite. If you look online, you can browse different options for personalized books and see if there is a storyline featuring Wonder Woman that would excite and interest a child you love.
