A wonderful children’s book.
Though set in another time, the issues and emotions are the same today as they were fifty years ago. This book is long overdue and one that could help children work through their emotions and fears. I think all too often the family of military personnel are overlooked and their sacrifices, especially that of the children are rarely considered, unless one is living that life.
Since the book is written from a child’s perspective the stories are more easily relatable to the young. And through these stories feelings and thoughts can often be better explained than when trying to sit down with a child and talk with them without the aid of this book. Also, depending on the age of the child who is reading or listening to this book it is a great spring board into discussing how they may be feeling and how they are handling their feelings.
The book is touching and emotional, it is well written and a very quick read. I love that it is made up of shorter stories so that it is easier for children to absorb the message. by JMabie
