Praise

“The ache and loneliness felt when missing a family member on deployment comes through in this photo essay about children of military and government personnel. Kerley gives voice to the children’s emotions, as they express fear, resolve to stay positive and strong, and love through simple personal statements matched by crisp, compelling color photography of ethnically diverse service members and their families.” — Kirkus

“Although this book will have special meaning for those children whose parents or caregivers are serving in the military, it’s also a valuable resource for those looking to understand more about the children of military families and their unique needs… An important book for comfort, support, and education.” — Booklist

“In this expansively designed book, the photos tell the stories not only of the deployed mothers and fathers far away but of the frustrations and worries and coping strategies of the children left behind… Children of soldiers might be comforted knowing there are others in the same situation, but all children will have their eyes opened to the challenges families face when one or both parents serve far away from home. ” — The Horn Book
