Elva Resa Publishing is pleased to announce the release of My Mom's Deployment: A deployment and reunion activity book for young children. Written by Julie LaBelle and illustrated by yours truly, the new release is specific to a mom's deployment and follows the same format as the previously-released My Dad's Deployment. The fun activities in this 112-page activity book offer young children a safe way to ask questions, talk about their feelings, and feel connected to a deployed parent.
Deployment-related mazes, dot-to-dots, counting, matching, coloring, and craft activities help children feel a part of the deployment process and prepare for what's coming next. Different sections provide appropriate activities for each stage of deployment (preparation, deployment, and reunion), from packing and saying goodbye to welcoming Mom home.
