Why'd Daddy Go to Afghanistan (paperback)

eBook (PDF), 32 Pages
(3 Ratings)
Price: Free
I wrote this book for my wife to read to my two young sons at bed time while I am deployed to Afghanistan with the Massachusetts Army National Guard. This is a light hearted explanation to my children for why I have left them for a year. If you read this to your children, I hope it also helps you and I hope you're handling the deployment as well as possible. I understand it's not easy.

    I love that this book takes a lighthearted (while still serious) look at why daddy must leave his family for so long. He takes his job and duty seriously even though he knows how much he will be missing his family. This book lets children know that it is because daddy loves them so much and because of boys and girls everywhere that he must go. It helps children to know that it is ok to think about what daddy might be doing at any given moment and that everyday ends with saying goodnight to his kids. The book is written and illustrated with love and humor that even the youngest of children will enjoy. Daddy is a hero for all kids of every age in this sweet story. Daddy is the BEST!
