We read nightly to our children. They, get to choose 3 books. Although some nights, we get to choose 1.
This book My Daddy is A Soldier has served our family well. The price was also 6.95. It can be bought here. The book covers moves, short deployments, long deployments, what a soldiers job is (as simply as it can be explained.)
We read it often during DH's deployment. So often in fact ours is missing a cover.
I would recommend this book for those of you that have a child 18 months to 6. It is easy for this age group to to digest.
Is there a book on your shelf, that you or your military family would recommend for children and why?
