Brave Like Me by Barbara Kerley
Brave Like Me is such a great book. It’s one of those books for littles that I wish they’d written sooner. Large color photographs containing people of all shapes and colors represent the members of the military who serve our countries. Let’s not the little ones left behind at home to hold down the fort and their feelings while Mom or Dad is gone. I love how the book tells the children that they are brave too. I can’t even imagine what a child feels when they’re separated from a parent knowing that they might be in some danger. Brave is a good word to describe it. Because otherwise a little one might break down and cry for fear of not understanding, right? So sensitive and perfect for families of military.
