Countdown 'til Mommy Comes Home
by Kristin Ayyar, illustrated by Melissa Bailey
Countdown 'til Mommy Comes Home is the story of a young boy waiting for his mommy to come home from a trip. To make their separation easier, his family creates rituals to stay connected and make the countdown fly by. Inspired by her own experiences, Kristin Ayyar shares how her family copes with the separations that are part of everyday life.
Includes ideas for ways to countdown and discussion questions for parents and children to talk about separations.
Kristin Ayyar is the mother of three children, an avid volunteer in her community, and was an Air Force spouse for 24 years. Countdown 'til Daddy Comes Home is filled with rituals she and her children followed when her husband traveled the globe or deployed overseas.
