Hero Dad

Illustrated by

"Beginning with the statement "My dad is a superhero," a young boy shares information about activities engaged in by his father, an American soldier stationed in what looks to be the Middle East. The boy's simple narration and the pencil-and-watercolor illustrations make it clear that the superhero status doesn't come from a fantasy (e.g., flying through the air, X-ray vision) but from the very real actions soldiers perform daily in the course of duty#133;Another nice tweak is Hardin's focus on the activities of the military parent, while many other authors tend to focus on the child's activity while the parent is away." &mdash Booklist
