Giveaway: “I Miss Daddy” deployment book for #military kids & their parents, Jan. 9-22

Win a copy of "I Miss Daddy" deployment book for kids & their parents on My Life: A Work in Progress

I haven’t hosted a giveaway in a few weeks, so I think it’s about time! One winner will receive a paperback copy of Acacia Beumer’s book I Miss Daddy, valued at $8.99 (current Amazon price). Although the book is geared towards military kids and their parents, I think it’s a worthy book to add to any child’s library.

You can read my full review here, but to recap, the book highlights through the main character, Jana, that children don’t usually express their sadness the way adults do. A child may be acting out, because she or he misses their deployed parent. That’s something adults need to be sensitive to. Besides reminding parents to be mindful of this, the book can be used as a talking point to open these conversations with your children.

The giveaway will run from January 9 to 22. It’s open to US residents. Please see full terms and conditions below. If you agree with them, scroll on down to enter. Thanks and good luck!

  1. What a great-sounding book. I haven;t seen many that focus on this issue, so it’s good to see this one. I have always believed that books can be a great way to help children understand certain issues, and understand that they are not alone in dealing with those issues. Thanks for the giveaway, too!
