Great New Military Story Book for Young Children
If you are or have a military dad who is serving overseas then the book “My Dad’s A Hero” is a perfect gift for his children. It will help you with your young children in understanding where daddy is and what he is doing. It is an uplifting little book with wonderful illustrations by Jen O. Robertson and a nifty little story line by Rebecca Christiansen and Jewel Armstrong.
I would think that even the youngest child could get something out of this book if read to them as they looked at the pictures on each page. 2nd to 6th grade students could read this book but all children will enjoy looking through it. The message is positive and comforting to small children.
I highly recommend this book for military families. It is a good little book and will be read over and over by small kids. I give it a children’s book rating of FIVE Teddy bears!

The reviewer, having spent years as an owner-director of preschools, is very knowledgeable of the reading selections and needs of this age group. This book must rate high on any suggested reading and purchasing list.
“…but that’s not what makes him my hero” is a wonderful tool to invite the reader or the story-listener to continue turning the pages. Will we discover what is needed to label that person “my hero?”
The images and phrases belong to various young age groups. The authors show that they have observed their own children’s interest and growth. They learned by doing!
This is a wonderful “read-aloud” which will please and give enjoyment both to the reader and the listener. Pick it up, begin reading to your child and see what happens. Enjoyment is just around the bend.
