Education starts for most of us by learning to read as a child. Children’s books typically are written in a child’s voice or their point of view in order for grasping greater understanding. Although all children face fears and anxiety that can reveal themselves especially at bedtime, military children also experience anxiety of a parent being away for an extended period of time.
Children’s book author Jenny La Sala reveals a poignant story of a soldier’s journey to and from war as the family who loves him learns to open their hearts to change and a new way of life.
Experience their remarkable journey through the pages of When Daddy Comes Home.
Gia loves her daddy. When he comes home from work, he gives her big hugs, swings her in circles, and even calls her his princess!
When her daddy is called to serve his country in Iraq and Afghanistan, Gia talks to him on the computer, helps bake him cookie care packages, and waits for the day he can come home. But when her daddy finally returns from his war experiences with the wounds of a warrior, Gia and her family soon discover that even though life is different, everything is still alright.
When Daddy Comes Home shares a heartfelt story for children of a soldier’s journey to and from war as the family who loves him learns to open their hearts to change in the most positive light.
We are so thankful for La Sala not only for her thoughtful book but also for contributing a portion of proceeds of her book sales to Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation. She is proud that three generations of her family have served with pride in World War I, World War II, and the Vietnam War.
