My Mom’s Deployment

The activities in this fun 112-page book reinforce concepts young children are already learning and give them a safe way to ask questions, talk about their feelings, and feel connected to a deployed parent. Four sections (Getting Ready for Deployment, Deployment, Getting Ready for Reunion, and Reunion) provide appropriate activities for each stage of deployment, from packing and saying goodbye to welcoming Mom home.

Includes mazes, dot-to-dots, counting, matching, coloring, crafts, telling time and other activities familiar to preschool and early elementary children.

A fun book for children and an excellent resource for parents, teachers, counselors, and other caregivers to help young children feel a part of the deployment process and prepare them for what’s coming next.

This version is specific to a mom’s deployment. My Dad’s Deployment is also available.
