From the Author
"When I was touring as Miss America, I had the opportunity to speak with many educators as I appeared at countless schools. I was always asked how to educate about veterans issues. I couldn't find that much in terms of children's books. After I became a mom, I decided to do something about it. This is really a labor of love, and I hope parents agree with me that it's never too early to teach children, patriotism and values, from courage, to volunteering! Even though the story lines are entertaining, I tried not to forget the educational and sprinkled them with historical facts." Heather French Henry.
