About the Author

With careers ranging from preschool teacher to psych nurse, JULIE LABELLE's most challenging role was mothering her three young children during her Marine husband's deployments, and then years later standing by when their son enlisted and deployed with the Marines. Julie wrote the activities in My Dad's Deployment based on things she felt she should have done with her children, but didn't, during deployments.  With 20/20 hindsight, Julie gets a do-over in life by sharing activities for young children that will be loved by parents and children alike as they face deployment together.

Born overseas to multicultural parents, CHRISTINA RODRIGUEZ grew up as an Air Force brat, moving from place to place. Christina loved to draw and paint. She was awarded a generous scholarship to the Rhode Island School of Design where she earned a fine arts degree in illustration. Christina is an award-winning children s book illustrator.

I bought this book for my 3.5 year old daughter a week after my husband deployed to Iraq. I wish that I had thought about things before he left as some of the activities in this book deal with before you leave and the day you leave...but it still is very good. I've started recommending it to all my friends who are going through the same thing. My daughter is definitely on the younger side for this book as it has dot to dots, writing sections and other sections that are mildly advanced for her. We still make it work and I'm ver happy that we have purchased this. I actually wish that the Support Services on base would supply these books because I think they would be a great addition to pre-deployment packages for kids!

As a retired teacher and now a private tutor, I have seen many instances where change in family circumstances has deeply affected a child; especially in military families. This book offers an opportunity for discussion with the child within a positve and structured framework. The artwork is delightful and the book's message progresses in an exceptionally well planned format.
I will be sending my daughter and son-in-law several copies to share with their two children and other military families in Olympia, WA.

I purchased this book for my 2 and 3 years old boys before their Dad was going to leave on a year long deployment. I found a lot of deployment resources were a little too advanced for their ages but this one fit the bill perfectly. It has a variety of activities, coloring pages, and worksheets to help very young children grasp the concept of deployment and understand what it happening as well as building a sense of pride in their Dad's service. I would recommend getting this a little before the deployment as there are some activities at the beginning for the child to do with the deploying parents as well. Its also great this comes in a "Mom's Deployment" version as well.

Our school (aboard Camp Pendleton Marine Corps Base) was the lucky one to receive these books and the author, Julie LaBelle brought them herself! There are many wonderful activities to do with dads before they leave, and then continue on with fun things up through his return. Parents loved the books and we are all awaiting the books for Mom's deployment!

No one ever hopes to use a book like this, but if the need ever arises, THIS is the book to have! I actually got this originally for my niece/nephews since their dad is getting ready to deploy for the first time in their lives, but I actually liked the book so much that I got another one for our family. It gives great ideas for kids on not just during deployment, but before and after too. A must have for ANY military family who has the chance of going through a deployment!

I bought this just before my husband left on his 3rd tour. This time our daughter is old enough to realize that he's away. This book has been great and it gave us some much needed quality time and she learned stuff, too. We're in the final days countdown of this deployment and just finished the last activity. Definitely geared for 5+ older kids but a great buy!

We've only just flipped through a couple pages but it's clearly a very great, creative way for kids to express their feelings and emotions leading up to deployment day and all the way thru to the end. My 6 year old can't wait to start this weekend with her dad she loves coloring and little puzzle games in the book. It's not really age appropriate for my 4 year old however can't do a lot of the puzzles and isn't really interested in coloring. But I did see several of the crafty things, like making a mail box with shoe boxes to put letters in, that will hold his attention and we will all have fun. Overall I really like it, I'm using it as a reference though. I'm going to cut pages from that and put them in a scrap book filled with photos and letters and school drawings. I would recommend this book to children 6 or up. Any younger I would just get on pintrest and find free ideas for crafts that they can do and enjoy.
