This reassuring picture book explores the issue of a parent working away from home in the armed forces.When a parent is deployed to war, it can be very disruptive to the whole family. Young children, however, may have fewer resources available to them to express or make sense of how they feel. By reading this book, young children can learn about how to deal feelings of worry, change at home, keeping in touch and looking forward to their return. Children's feeling and questions are looked at in a simple but realistic way. Discussion boxes offer an adult opportunities to discuss the issues directly with their child audience. Charmingly clear illustrations give readers immediate access to complex situations and feelings and provide further stimulus for discussion. Notes for teachers and parents, plus suggested further resources, give ideas for how to help the child through this situation.
