The vivid illustrations in this book are provided by Mr. Lorenzo Williams, an accomplished artist and art teacher. The illustrations capture the range of the little boy’s animations from his sadness as he deals with his classmates’ jeering: “You can’t be a nurse, you’re a boy” to his enthusiasm and pride when he presents to his class, “My Hero, My Dad The Nurse.”
