Publisher's Description

A poignant and timely look at what it’s like when your parent is a soldier, illustrated by Caldecott Honor artist E.B. Lewis.

When your daddy’s a soldier, sometimes he has to go far away and you can’t be with him.

A young boy whose father is in the military shares what it’s like for him, his mama, and his Sis when their daddy is deployed. This touching story captures the bittersweet mixture of pride and sorrow children experience when a parent is serving his or her country far away. With moving illustrations by Caldecott Honoree E.B. Lewis, this powerful picture book serves as an homage to families who serve along with their military members.

Author Bio

Gretchen McLellan is a lover of playing word games; baking; hiking in the woods with her dog, Koby; cross-country skiing; and writing picture books. Gretchen loves to travel, especially returning to the Germany of her nomadic army-brat childhood. She once traveled overland from the Netherlands to Kabul, Afghanistan, with a backpack full of, you guessed it, books. Now she hopes little backpacks will be carrying her books on adventures of their own.

E.B. Lewis is the award-winning illustrator of such books as Virgie Goes to School with Us Boys by Elizabeth Fitzgerald, which was a Coretta Scott King Illustrator Honor Book, and This Little Light of Mine. He received the Caldecott Honor for Coming on Home Soon by Jacqueline Woodson and the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award for Talkin’ About Bessie: The Story of Aviator Elizabeth Coleman by Nikki Grimes. E.B. Lewis lives in New Jersey, and you can visit him online at EBLewis.com.
