CRRL Kids: Military Families
Annotation:After his older brother, whom he has always looked up to, joins the Army, a little boy works hard to fill the “older brother” role by teaching the youngest brother new things and finding ways to stay connected to his brother.
Annotation:As her Navy father prepares to leave, a young girl doesn’t know how to handle the separation, until her father points out the red, white, and blue things she sees every day, which will remind her of him while he is gone.
Annotation:Amanda’s father shows her that the dark can be beautiful and fun, rather than scary, and, after he deploys, she uses the stars, both outside and those they painted on her ceiling, to stay connected to him while he is gone.
