Editorial Reviews

Review

"An exceptional book that addresses military deployment from the point of view of the child whose loved one is absent. Suitable for young children--and fun to read for grown-ups--the book explores activities that the service member is missing (birthdays, holidays, school plays), activities the child can engage in (letter writing, care packages, phone conversations), emotions the child is experiencing (sadness, longing, pride, joy) while also representing the United States Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps. The rhyming text presents a simple meter that is easy and fun to read, with rhyme schemes that fit the age level of the child. Illustrations are appealing, eye-catching, and detailed enough to allow the child to make discoveries along the way. Words and illustrations are laid out on the page so that they flow from one thought to the next. While this book is a must-read for young children experiencing the deployment of a parent, it would also make a great read-aloud selection for all young school children to build appreciation for the sacrifices made by military families. It would be a great addition to every school library." - Betsy Beard, Military Writers Society of America


"There are very, very few books written from the perspective of military children that acknowledge the underlying sentiment behind a military parent's service (and absence). I'll Lend You My Daddy does so with a grace and positive perspective that lends to its value for military families, substituting the usual discussions of loss and loneliness with those of pride and contribution to a cause ... No military family with small children, or collections catering to them, should be without this unique, bright, encouraging picture book that emphasizes pride, reunion, sacrifice, and duty." - Diane Donovan, Senior Reviewer at Midwest Reviews


"I ordered this book for my nephew's sons who are 4 and 7. It was a big hit! Their dad has been deployed since last winter and he has been greatly missed. I'll Lend You My Daddy helped them understand they are not the only ones missing their dad. Since their dad is in a reserve unit based in another city they don't know the children of other soldiers. The book is very easy to read and the rhyming adds an undertone of optimism. The illustrations are delightful. This book fills a gap that many families have. Thanks to the author for taking her time to provide a much needed resource for our military families." - Sharon Hardesty ★★★★★

As a former military kid I was a little apprehensive about this book. So many people misunderstand and misrepresent our childhood but not this book. This was an exceptional read and I would recommend it for any child, military or not. I felt as if it really captured the heart of those little kid feelings of missing a parent while they were on deployment. I whole-heartedly give this book 5 stars! - Hannah L. ★★★★★


"I'll Lend You My Daddy is a powerful tribute to military children and those in uniform serving our country. In a positive and unique way, the author uplifts military children. When dad is away on military duty, this book helps remind children that they have an important job in 'lending their daddy' to help others - they too are courageous and strong. And when dad is home - it is a bittersweet read for the entire family. I highly recommend this book for military families with young children." - Ckwm ★★★★★


"An outstanding book written for children ages 4 to 8 ... The author has done an excellent job in 'hitting' the high points of having a father figure deployed in the service of our country .... Most highly recommended." - Serenity, Hall of Fame, Top Ten Amazon Reviewer ★★★★★
