What readers think:
“Deployment homecoming videos always make me cry, so it’s no wonder that my eyes got a little misty when I read about Max & her dad’s reunion at the school assembly in “Super Max’s Hero Surprise.” Most people associated with the military know what it’s like to either be deployed themselves or to have a loved one that is or was deployed at some point. Separation like that is hard on the heart, mind, body, and soul for everyone involved, which is why deployment homecomings are so special, overwhelming, and emotional. It’s nice to see resources like this available to help support military families while also educating or sensitizing other Americans to the unique challenges that military families face at the same time. This book would be excellent for elementary teachers to read to students during the Month of the Military Child (i.e., April).”- Lori B
“I got a little teary-eyed reading this and thinking how hard it would be to have a loved one deployed and how hard it must have been for my family when our family members were deployed. I love this author/illustrator combo and the inclusive characters and beautiful graphics. Another great book for the kid’s library!” Casey L.
