"Night Catch is a staple in our Parent to Parent program. Used for Tell Me a Story events, Night Catch provides military-connected children a unique opportunity to maintain close, personal bonds with moms and dads during deployments or long separations. We enthusiastically recommend it!" — Military Child Education Coalition
"Keeping military families connected during deployment is the core of our work. Brenda's exceptional imagery allows military families to realize mindfulness—keeping the parent in the mind of the child and the child in the mind of the parent. Night Catch is the best of the best!" — Sally Ann Zoll, Ed.D, CEO, United Through Reading
"Night Catch is my favorite book to read with my two girls when daddy is away. We are BIG FANS!" — Tara E Crooks, Cofounder, Army Wife Network
About the Author
As a teacher, BRENDA EHRMANTRAUT spent years filling notebooks and journals with stories and ideas.
Night Catch was inspired when her brother deployed to Iraq and Brenda wanted to create a story that would connect and comfort his family during their year apart.
About Night Catch, she says, "I love hearing how parents and grandparents get choked up reading it; it makes me feel like I've made a human connection and a tiny little difference." Brenda feels honored to play a small part in supporting the sacrifices military families make through the distribution of her book.
Brenda was a reading and language arts teacher in Ohio and Washington before having children of her own. She and her husband, a minister, live in Beresford, South Dakota, where she continues to work in education.
