LION's PRIDE by Grace Anne Remey is a delightful and Yet meaningful "tail" of a family sharing deployments while remaining strong. There is inspiration in the story told from a child's point of view using a Lions family to represent the author's family. The suggestions for families to use during deployments are clever and provide constant connections. The use of the word "PRIDE" in the title reveals much about this family's appreciation for service to our great country.

Simply beautiful! Grace Anne captures the thoughts and feelings every military child has when a parent deploys. Written from a child's eyes, it's easy for kids to relate to the story and understand the stages of deployment for a family. The creative 'Ideas from Momma Lion' are easy ways to help children cope with deployment and provide something for them to look forward to as well. A Lion's Pride is a definite must for any military family's library.

Grace Anne has done it again! This time Grace Anne describes the process of moving from a militayr child's point-of-view. She is honest in describing the fears and anxieties military children face when they PCS. She also captures the excitement and positive aspects of going somewhere new. This is a great book for military parents to use in helping their children through a move. As a seasoned AF BRAT with then PCS moves under my belt, I can say she hit it right on the money!

On The Move is a good book for showing what it's like for military kids to move a lot, and gives good ideas for helping kids to cope with a move to a different country. I should know because I'm an American military kid in Germany.
