My Dad Is Going Away, But He Will Be Back One Day: A Deployment Story

Front Cover
Createspace Independent Pub, Jul 26, 2004 - Family & Relationships - 24 pages
Military families sometimes have to spend a lot of time apart from each other while serving their country, with one or more of the parents deployed. The separation can be just a few days in length or many months. This children's book helps the family explain to the child how things will work while the parent is away and how to communicate over the distance until the day the family reunites. The writing style and art of the book enables each child, boy or girl, to relate to the story in a personal sense. This book was designed with five cut out pages at the end allowing the child to write a letter and draw a picture for the deployed parent.
