Overview

This heartwarming story is a salute to military families across the country, and a cheer for our nation's heroes.

A Sergeant in the House, tells the story of Lenny who desperately wants a puppy. His father is in the military, the family must move frequently, and Lenny is still very young to care for an animal, so Lenny strikes a bargain: When his daddy becomes a sergeant, Lenny can have a puppy.

When his father is deployed to war, Lenny learns what it means to be responsible, to care for his family, and to help around the house. A dreaded phone call brings the news that Lenny's father has been injured and is being sent home. When Lenny's father explains that this means he'll never become a sergeant, Lenny realizes that what he truly wants is his daddy––puppy or no puppy.

About the Author

Betty Turnbull lived much of her adult life in Haiti where she worked in education and rural development. During her thirty years in Haiti, Betty developed the first rural preschool program, which has expanded into hundreds of schools across the nation. Having lived outside the United States, Betty grew to appreciate even more the freedoms she grew up with. Today, she is a proud military mom with a son in the United States Air Force. She realizes that he represents just one of the thousands of men and women who give of themselves daily to protect the freedoms we take so much for granted. She has also witnessed firsthand that when one member of the family serves, the whole family serves. A Sergeant in the House was written as her way of giving back and saying thank you to our military men and women, their spouses and their children. All royalties from the book are being donated to Hope for the Warriors® who provide crucial services and support to returning soldiers and their families. The author and her husband live in Durham, NC. They have three children. When she is not writing children’s books, Betty enjoys traveling, serving her community, and being Gramma.
