    This book tackles a tough subject head on and addresses the seriousness of combat in a way children can understand A boy and his deployed father promise to look at the moon and think of each other while they re apart The father returns injured but they soldier on together yes, I borrowed a little pun from the book as he heals It s so hard on children when their parents are away and Daddy, Can You See the Moon treats this challenging issue with dignity and candor The illustrations are so realistic, some of them look like photographs.

    An extremely touching story of a father and son separated by the father s deployment They are tied together by sharing a ritual of each looking at the moon every night at bedtime The emotion in this book fairly leaps off the page and will have kids riveted.

    While Johnny s dad is serving across seas in the military, Johnny stays connected with him by looking at the moon, knowing his father is looking at the same moon and thinking about him, too But when Johnny s dad is injured and comes home, Johnny s not sure if the man who worked to keep our country safe will ever be the same Over time, Johnny s dad learns to use his new prosthetic legs, and Johnny continues to view his dad as a hero and role model An important book for the children of injured soldiers, and a heartwarming book about heroes.

    This is a heartwarming story that fleshes out the pangs of parent child separation It goes a step further and incorporates the challenges when Dad is away fighting for the country As we follow the emotional and physical challenges at both ends, young readers will understand hardship as well as hope that keeps familial love together Written in rhyme using simple language, this book handles a relevant and difficult topic with care and sensitivity.

    The moon may wax and wane, but the special bond between a young boy and his father never wavers This book is a must read for any family that will experience separation Although it is about a military family, other parents can use the moon to stay connected to young children while away on business or other long trips It is a moving tribute to our armed forces and wounded warriors The topic is serious, but it is handled in a simple and positive way appropriate for young readers.
