|Why My Dad? A Story About Military
Deployment by Lisa R. Bottorff
Do you know a child that is struggling to
understand why their military mommy or daddy
missed their baseball game, recital or a
birthday? If you do then "Why My Dad?" is for you.
It is a fact that the military member is not the only
one that serves his or her country. The family of
that military member serves as well. As one
would expect, the little military members that stay
at home are the most affected. They have to
endure the temporary duty or lengthy
deployments that are part of the job.
Unfortunately, the children are often too young
and too confused to really understand this. All
they know is mommy or daddy is gone.
"Why My Dad?" offers a warm military story
paralleled with a situation to which they can
relate, "The Bully." If they haven’t been affected by
a bully they know someone that has. This book is
designed to reach any branch of the service at
any point in time.
