About the Author:

Author Melinda Hardin lives in Clinton, Massachusetts. She received a degree in secondary education from Western Michigan University. She has traveled extensively and enjoys time with her family.  Hero Dad is her first book and is about being the child of a military father, from the child's point of view.

Illustrator Bryan Langdo lives in New Jersey. He has illustrated nearly thirty books for children, and wrote two of them.

From School Library Journal:

K-Gr 2–This sunny picture book opens with the stirring words, “My dad is a superhero.” However, readers soon discover that he is not a caped crusader: he is a United States soldier in fatigues. As the proud boy explains, Dad has real-life corollaries to the traditional superhero accessories, for example, a rifle instead of a laser gun. The illustrations often flesh out the child's vision. The words on one spread, “He can't fly–well, sometimes he can,” are accompanied by a picture of Dad and his buddies parachuting from a plane. The bright, cartoon artwork makes the book child-friendly and evokes superhero comic books. Meanwhile, the luminous watercolors make the difficult subject matter approachable for young children faced with separation from military parents. Hardin's first-person narrative helps them voice their own feelings, and reassuringly, this dad comes home. For most collections, especially those serving military communities.Mary Landrum, Lexington Public Library, KY
