Hero Dad: A boy compares his father, a U.S. soldier, to a superhero.
Some superheroes wear rocket-propelled boots, drive super-powered cars, and have X-ray vision.
But other superheroes wear army boots, drive tanks, and go away for long trips to make the world a safer place. It’s a tough job, but superheroes can do it.
With Melinda Hardin’s simple text and with Bryan Langdo’s endearing watercolor-and-pencil illustrations, Hero Dad makes a difficult and tender subject more accessible to children with parents serving far from home.
