About the Author

MARY REDMAN has experienced many joys and challenges as a military wife and mother over the past 20 years. She has managed pack-outs, given birth, visited emergency rooms, heralded holidays, bid farewell to grandparents, and attended numerous school events while her husband was deployed. Military life gave Mary many unexpected opportunities, from attending the running of the bulls in Spain to teaching English in Japan and exploring American history with her family in Virginia. She lives on Long Island with her husband and three boys, where she spends much of her time attending soccer games. 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 and in her spare time enjoys cooking authentic Mexican cuisine, volunteering, hula-hooping, and being outdoors. She and her husband live with their dog in historic Stillwater, Minnesota.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In today's world we have many children who are facing the deployments of a parent. The Wishing Tree is a beautifully written and illustrated book and would make a perfect gift for these kids. It presents a very positive approach for a strategy to help a child through the many days until the parent returns. This book is also a great read for children who have friends who are facing the struggles of missing a parent. In my third grade classroom, we created a "Challenge Tree" to apply the lesson learned in The Wishing Tree to our lives. We each would write a goal or a self-challenge on a ribbon and tie it onto our pencil. When we achieve that goal, we then can transfer the ribbon onto our tree. It is a visable reminder of our accomplishments. I highly recommend this book as a read-aloud and as a gift book for any child, but especially to children of military members.

I currently work as a school counselor, and I ordered this book to use with a group of military kids. It's a good book to use with kids whose parents are deployed. The kids love it. It was easy to come up with supplemental activities to use with the book.

1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Debbie and Lydia Vilardi on February 22, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I read this book with my seven year old this week, and she is helping me write the review. We like the book because it presents a realistic picture of a child's feelings when a parent is away. In this case, the parent is in the armed forces, but all children whose parents travel will appreciate the story even if their parents are not in danger. Amanda deals with her concerns for her father by making a "wishing tree." She ties bows with wishes on them to a craft tree. My daughter plans to do this next time her father is away on business.
