This little boy’s mom is a soldier. Her job is to protect the country and keep everyone safe and free. Sometimes, his mom has to leave him to serve the county, and he feels very sad and blue. But he understands his mommy loves him no matter where she is and what she is doing.


My Mommy is a Soldier, a picutre book for children, calls attention to the emotional impact on a child because of a mother’s deployment. It brings to light the mood swings children experience from being separated from their mothers. Written from the child’s perspective, it shows how the boy’s understanding is enlightened about the world around him as he realizes his mother’s love is not only for him and family, but for the country as well.
