D is for Deployment: Ann Raps it Up

D is for Deployment is written by Marg Rogers for slightly older children and is told with the help of these adorable characters designed by Trish Donald. They build children’s emotional understanding as they react to what is happening in the stories. This assists children to practice their emotions safely as they connect with the story. The story also looks at some of the different things parents do when they are on deployment. The story can be used to spark discussions between parents and children or educators and children to build their knowledge and understanding of deployment.

D is for Deployment works on children’s language and understanding of the transitions that happen in their family when a parent works away on deployment or leave of absence.
