New eBook D is for Deployment – a peek

D is for deployment: Ann raps it up

This book is for slightly older children and explores the language of deployment through the eyes of Ann, a preschooler. Ann experiences the various stages of her father’s deployment: before deployment, during deployment, the reunion and the time after deployment. Ann experiences many different challenges, emotional highs and lows and ways she can keep in touch with her father when he is away. She also learns about some of the different jobs people do on deployment.

The readers are guided by these 4 lovable characters who teach emotional skills and resilience.
