We've only just flipped through a couple pages but it's clearly a very great, creative way for kids to express their feelings and emotions leading up to deployment day and all the way thru to the end. My 6 year old can't wait to start this weekend with her dad she loves coloring and little puzzle games in the book. It's not really age appropriate for my 4 year old however can't do a lot of the puzzles and isn't really interested in coloring. But I did see several of the crafty things, like making a mail box with shoe boxes to put letters in, that will hold his attention and we will all have fun. Overall I really like it, I'm using it as a reference though. I'm going to cut pages from that and put them in a scrap book filled with photos and letters and school drawings. I would recommend this book to children 6 or up. Any younger I would just get on pintrest and find free ideas for crafts that they can do and enjoy.
My husband recently deployed. Before he left we were trying to figure out how best to prepare our 4 and 2 year olds for Daddy being away for so long. I found this book and bought it a couple months before he left. Honestly, my 2 year old hasn't gotten much out of it, probably because he doesn't really comprehend what is happening. Our 4 year old daughter had a wonderful time working on the activities with my husband. Although, she is a little young for some of the activities, they made the most of it. It helped her to understand where Daddy was going and why. Most importantly it helped to reassure her that he loves her and is not abandoning her. The book is great and would probably be that much better for an older child.
I purchased this book for my 2 and 3 years old boys before their Dad was going to leave on a year long deployment. I found a lot of deployment resources were a little too advanced for their ages but this one fit the bill perfectly. It has a variety of activities, coloring pages, and worksheets to help very young children grasp the concept of deployment and understand what it happening as well as building a sense of pride in their Dad's service. I would recommend getting this a little before the deployment as there are some activities at the beginning for the child to do with the deploying parents as well. Its also great this comes in a "Mom's Deployment" version as well.
