7-year-old Natalie Plamondon hadn’t seen her father since he was deployed to the Middle East last February. She was attending morning program at Okte Elementary School in Clifton Park when her mother was the guest reader. She began to read the pages of “Hero Dad.” Natalie joined her mother and read the book with her. “My Dad is a hero, a superhero,” she read.
Just then her father appeared and brought the room to tears.
