Celebrate Heroes

Heroes need to be celebrated and what better way than with a book? My Mommy Is A Hero and My Daddy Is A Hero, both by Hannah Tolson, are two new wonderful picture books that do just that. Each book from Kane Miller tells a different story for each hero.

My Mommy Is A Hero begins with the mother heading out on her tour of duty. The family is saying goodbye and admiring her bravery.

One of my favorite pages of this book features the child writing a letter to their mom while she’s imagining her parent’s courageous work. Definitely a sweet moment. ūüėć

The story is complete as our hero is recognized for her accomplishments with her adoring family standing by.

My Daddy Is A Hero has a similar outline but touches on a few different subjects.

First, Daddy is seen saying goodbye to his family the same as our other hero.

Next, we learn how Daddy helps communities and takes¬†care of people in need and sick friends. The child remembers when their father took care of them when they weren’t feeling well.

Another page shows a conversation between Daddy and the child on the phone while they are apart. The child understands that their father is still there for them even here though he may be far away.

Daddy works with others as a team and is a friend to fellow officers.

Our hero is honored at the end of the book while his proud family attends.

These two books are truly heartwarming! What a great addition to a library, especially one of a military family. While each book is different, the core values and principles remain the same. Bravery, admiration, community and leadership are strong attributes of each of our heroes.

Allowing the child to envision themselves with their parent, while their loved is away, is a fantastic element of the story. The illustrations are unique due to the fact that they nearly show a “split screen” of the parent at home verses away. The child is able to relate everyday life and qualities of their parent and compare those to the work they do in the military.
