*About This Book:
A Heartfelt Tribute to American Soldiers and Their Families
With engaging watercolor illustrations and kid-friendly text, this book honors parents who serve in the military.
This young boy’s dad doesn’t have X-ray vision or drive a superpowered car, but he’s a superhero nonetheless. With pictures that sensitively and realistically portray the life of US soldiers on deployment and the families eagerly awaiting their return, this book makes a difficult subject accessible to children. Readers learn that these “superheroes” wear camouflage clothing, drive tanks, and help make the world a safer place. It’s an important story to share with kids whose parents are serving their country far from home.
