This book does a great job of relating to children with parents overseas.  It shows them it is okay to be sad, scared, or even angry that their parent is leaving.  It also gives a few ideas to help cope with the time apart, such as emails, phone calls, and visual reminders they are one day closer to coming home.  This is a tough topic to tackle, though unfortunately there are many family who can benefit from this book.

This is the perfect book to help children cope with the separation of a parent especially with so many parents over seas in iraq
