Read in Honor Military Families
This 4th of July is the right time to honor the sacrifices made by military families. When parents are assigned overseas or even just a remote place state-side, it’s hard for families. There are several children’s books that address the family dynamics of a military family.
- Night Catch – Brenda Ehrmantraut
- Lily Hates Goodbyes – Jerilyn Marler
- When Dad’s at Sea – Mindy L. Pelton
- While Your Away – Eileen Spinelli
- Red, White & Blue Good-bye – Sarah Wones Tomp.
- I Miss You! – Beth Andrews
While military children need these books, they are also important for all children to read and think about. The American way of life is supported by our military. Kids need to understand the sacrifices that make their own freedoms possible.
In honor of 4th of July and our military families, Mims House offers free an ebook of 11 Ways to Ruin a Photograph. (When you check out, use this coupon code: THANKS) In this poignant story, a child decides that while Daddy is gone for a year, it’s NOT a family photo album. She ruins every family photo until her father returns from his tour of duty.
