Military mommies do all kinds of jobs in all kinds of places, but there’s one thing every military child knows for sure – “My Mommy is a Hero!”
"In a heartening picture book, Tolson honors mothers in the armed forces. The rhymed lines have a smooth, easy cadence: 'My mommy is a hero,/ her strength amazes me./ She dives into the ocean,/ to rescue those at sea.' Tolson's friendly images show the figures in daring circumstances (jumping from planes), or serving communities (a medic listens to a child's chest with a stethoscope). Back home, their children are seen writing letters and thinking of their loved ones... Tolson suggests that sharing in an enlisted parent's pride can make them feel a little closer when they are far away."
