For those of us who don’t have a parent in the military, life as a military child may sound difficult. But for many kids across the world, it’s a normal part of their lives. Claudia Harrington’s book, “My Family: My Military Mom,” tells the story of a young boy who has just joined a new school. He shares with one of his classmates what an average day is like for his family while his mom is serving out of state. Throughout the book, the two boys bond over both having a parent in the military and share what their lives are like when one of their parents is deployed. What makes this book so special is that it focuses on how normal their lives truly are, and how they still have a strong connection with their parents whether their military parent is at home or deployed.
