Children's Resources

The book My Mom is a Soldier, written by MCpl Shawn Belisle for parents and educators of military children ages 4 to 8 years, is intended to educate and support children during the often emotional and stressful posting season.

Joey’s Mom is Going Away, written by Nathalie Connoly, supports children who are separated from a parent's absence during deployment. Using text, illustrations and activities the story takes children into Joey the beaver’s world, as he tries to cope with his mother’s absence.
