Editorial Reviews

Review

"A social worker who counseled military families wrote I Miss You!…to help children and parents deal with deployment. The book is one-half parents' guide and one-half child's coloring book. In age-appropriate words, it explains what deployment will mean for the child, the deployed parents and the family left behind. It includes suggestions that can help children deal with anxiety and anger and go ahead with their lives."

I borrowed this book from the local library and I loved it so much that I had to go out and purchase it. While it is for children a little older than toddler age, any book especially one about a sensitive topic such as a deployment, should be pre-screened by parents.

I used to be in the military myself but was never deployed. Having my husband deploy has been difficult on the whole family. I really did not know exactly how to explain things to my very intelligent almost 7 year old child (who is more like 6 going on 26!) This book really opened up the communication with my daughter and her feelings about Daddy's soon-to-be departure. She is a very boisterous girl and has a wonderful outgoing personality, but not when it comes time to discuss serious matters and feelings. The book really brought out a lot of information and opened up a great forum for the three of us to have a discussion.

Great things in the book! For example, it explains that is ok to have so many different emotions - that it is ok to cry and it feels good to cry. It is ok to be angry sometimes and to punch something soft like a pillow or to go outside and kick a ball. It explains that although the child may be worried about her parent who is deployed, her main job is still to go to school, be a kid and have fun. It explains that the parent that is home with the child may be a little more tired than usual because she is doing the her chores as well as Daddy's chores. It explains what a deployment is and other things that come along with deployments. The book explains that the deployed soldier may not know exactly where they are going or they may know but are not allowed to tell anyone. Same thing with dates of return.

As far as I'm concerned, any deployment book for kids is a plus, but this one is a bit lengthy. I was expecting a "story book" and this is more of a long, drawn out explaining deployments/activity book. All in all, I appreciate any deployment books, as long as you know what you're buying.

I purchased this book for my toddler boys after my husband deployed overseas. I don't remember reading a recommended age, but this book is too advanced for my children. It seems more for 7-10 year olds. I am going to be returning this book. Make sure to check what ages the books are appropriate for first. I know I will be doing this in the future.

I was skeptical because most books I've read over for kids whose parents are in the military do not really talk about the children as well as the caregiver left back at home. Most books talk about the children and I wanted one that did both so I could explain in a way my children could understand that somedays I may not be at my best, but that it was in no way their fault and that we will get through the deployment together as a family with help from good friends if needed.

very pleased.

I got this book for my daughter who was 2 1/2 when her dad deployed. It was an older read for us and it was more of a helpful way to explain deployment to children. Although she was very young for this it helped her understand her emotions she was feeling and how to cope a lil better. I would recommend it to any parent who needs help explaining deployment.
