11 WAYS TO RUIN A PHOTOGRAPH: A Military Family StoryWhen her father goes soldiering for a year, a girl decides that without Dad at home, it's not a family photo album. Though her beloved Nanny is in charge of the album that year, the girl makes sure that photographs of her never turn out well. Photos are blurred, wind blows hair in her face. April rains bring umbrellas to hide behind. Halloween means a mask. This poignant, yet funny family story, expresses a child's anger and grief for a Dad whose work takes him away for long periods of time. It's a tribute to the sacrifices made by military families and to those who care for children when a family needs support.Read with your classroom for military and patriotic holidaysVeteran's DayArmed Forced DayPatriot's Day4th of JulyUnderstand Military Families Who Serve the United StatesGratitude for their sacrificesUnderstand the family challengesSupport for deploymentChildren's book author and writing teacher Darcy Pattison gives tribute to the sacrifices made by military families and to those who care for children when a family needs help.
