“When Daddy Comes Home” by U.S. Marine Corps Veteran, Maggie Hundshamer, uses plain language to discuss tough feelings in a way that younger children can understand. Written from the perspective of a child whose father served in the U.S. Military and is now dealing with PTS (Post-Traumatic Stress), this book shows ways a child can help a parent who may be struggling.
