Overview

Written by the son of a career officer, this book explores the branches of the Armed Services and speaks from the heart about the honor, privileges and sacrifices of military families everywhere. Children will discover why drill sergeants have to be so tough, what it means to be patriotic and why we need Special Forces such as the Navy SEALS, the Green Berets and the Army Rangers. H is for Honor also explains why the annual Army/Navy football game is more than just a game, how much letters from home mean to soldiers, how often military families have to move and what life on base is like. With an underlying message of courage and commitment that every child can relate to, the book will be especially meaningful to those whose parents, siblings or other relatives serve in the Armed Forces.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Vicki Foote
This alphabet book about the Armed Services and military life is written in verses of four lines, and each page has sidebar text that explains each concept in more detail. The verse for the letter A is about the American Armed Forces, and the sidebar text relates more information about the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines, and the Coast Guard. Each letter depicts different aspects of the military, from an explanation of the term "military brats," to a listing in the sidebar of the special phonetic alphabet system for communicating over the radio or phone. Both personal situations and technical explanations are addressed. The realistic drawings reveal interesting details, as in the intricate illustration of a submarine alongside an aircraft carrier and a helicopter. Another picture shows a soldier reading a letter from his child. This serious and respectful text provides important information in a unique approach.
