Deployment Book for Kids – Giveaway

In April, the National Center for Youth Issues published the children’s book: Deployment- One of Our Pieces is Missing.


This is the best children’s book about deployment that I have come across during my time as a military spouse.  It covers all aspects of how deployment and military life affect the family, including post deployment reintegration.  I highly recommend it for families dealing with deployment.

The story portrays the military family as pieces of a puzzle.  When the military member deploys, a piece of the puzzle is missing but when the piece returns, the other pieces have changed shape so the returning member must change shape to fit into the new puzzle.

From the back cover:

I think I’m pretty lucky because I’m part of a military family. It makes me really proud to know my parents are working to keep our country safe.

I get to do stuff other kids don’t.
My life is kinda unique.
I’ve tried on night vision goggles,
and I’ve looked inside a Humvee.

Julia Cook is an award winning children’s book author and her storytelling skills shine in this book.  You can buy it here.

I have a copy to giveaway, so leave a comment on this blog post to let me know you want to be entered.
