This is a great book, it is a wonderful story while at the same time teach some awesome life lessons without it being so, in your face, toward the reader. Some things are a little dated since the book is set in the 50's but maybe kids would enjoy learning and hearing about radio broadcasts and kid superheroes from their grandpa's time.
