My Dad's Deployment: A Deployment and Reunion Activity Book for Young Children
by Julie LaBelle, illustrated by Christina Rodriguez
This 112-page activity book features mazes, dot-to-dot, counting, matching, coloring, crafts, telling time, and other activities familiar to young preschool and early elementary children. Shown within the context of common deployment and reunion topics, the activities reinforce concepts young children are already learning and offer children the opportunity to ask questions, talk about their feelings, and feel connected to their deployed parent.
Four sections: Getting Ready for Deployment, Deployment, Getting Ready for Reunion, and Reunion provide appropriate activities for each stage of deployment, from packing and saying goodbye to welcoming Dad home.
An excellent resource for parents, teachers, counselors, and other caregivers to help young children feel a part of the deployment process and prepare them for what's coming next.
This version is specific to a dad's deployment. My Mom's Deployment is also available.
