Our Daddy Is Invincible! An Excerpt

Our Daddy Is Invincible! An Excerpt

Our Daddy Is Invincible! is a book for kids of parents with brain injury.

It was written by Shannon Maxwell whose husband, Tim, sustained a traumatic brain injury in Iraq in 2004.

The illustrator, Liza Biggers, lost her brother, Ethan, at age 22. In 2006, he was shot by a sniper in Baghdad and succumbed to his wounds 11 months later after a long battle.

Alexis, Shannon and Tim's daughter, wrote the foreword. "Even if the bad guys got him, he was still my daddy — a little different, but my wonderful father who loves me."

After Alexis and Eric find out their Daddy was badly hurt, they are scared for him and wonder how his injuries will change their lives.

They learn that his love for them continues to be strong and that life goes on.

There are people to help in their daddy's recovery, new adventures to be found, and new ways to find enjoyment together as a family.

It can be scary to think of Daddy so far from home. But we shoo those worries away, agreeing that nothing can hurt him.
