|About the Book|
It can be hard for the kids of servicemen and women to understand why Daddy has to go away so often. It can be hard for the kids to know why they have to leave friends and start a new life in a new place. My Daddy is a Soldier lets young children know that Daddy has an important job: helping poor people around the world, capturing bad guys, and making the world a better and safer place to live. Through full color pictures and simple text, the book introduces kids to various aspects of a soldiers life: physical exercises, field training, long exercises away from home, and the need to relocate. It also tracks what the family does to support him: writing letters, baking cookies to send while he is away, and treating moves as an adventure in which new friends are to be made.
