Even though I don't have anyone in my immediate family in the military, this book still brought touched my heart and had me shedding a few tears.

When Your Daddy's a Soldier conveys military families living through deployment, as well as reunions.
The book is gentle and real.

The illustrations are absolutely beautiful, and capture the family dynamic and emotions very well. Part of the reason why the book is so touching is the deep emotions carved on everyone's faces as they try to navigate life while their father, or husband, is deployed and all the uncertainties that come along with that.

A beautiful story for military and civilian families alike.
