Coloring My Military Life—Book 1
Illustrated by Christina Rodriguez
Military life is a colorful adventure, filled with challenges, blessings, and a whole lot of red, white, and blue. Frequent moves, deployments, and close friendships over the miles are just a few common shades. Each person in a military family lives a unique life. Elva Resa’s Coloring My Military Life books let you choose your palette to express your own military life experience.
Each book contains a variety of illustrated military life situations and emotions appropriate for all ages. One-sided pages offer options to use a variety of coloring materials, take pages out of the book to frame or share, or draw your own pictures or doodles on the blank side.
Coloring My Military Life—Book 1 features level one coloring pages with simple scenes especially interesting to younger children. An adorable puppy makes snow angels, marches in a patriotic parade, and dreams of being a superhero dog.
Christina says, “This book is an ode to the family dog—the loyal and loving companion animal who helps everyone endure the frequent geographic and emotional transitions of military life.”
