Synopsis:  This picture book explores customs and courtesies of military culture through a child's eyes. Author Mary Lee takes your child along with her fictional character Susie on a journey of discovery. From military uniforms through a military child's 'rite of passage' full circle to Susie's development of a sense of pride and patriotism in our country. My Air Force Mom shows children that the military offers careers to women as well as men. It gives military moms and dads a book to help their young children begin to understand military life. My Air Force Mom gives civilian parents a tool to explain mysteries of military life to their children.
 
Overall thoughts:  A winner in the Children’s Fiction Category of the 73rd Annual Writer’s Digest Writing Contest, this fun book does an excellent job of explaining the military life to children.  I really liked how it was written from the view point of the daughter, and that it was about her mom – another fantastic reminder to all that girls proudly serve in the military. The author was able to capture the pride the daughter has for her mom’s occupation, and the excitement she feels for being a part of the military community.
