Books that Support Children in Military Families

Children in military families face certain challenges that their friends might not encounter and can experience their childhood or adolescence quite differently from their peers. Having a parent in active service can entail unique events and transitions for children which might include frequent moves to new schools or homes, having a parent deployed away from home, frequent shifts between living with one parent and both parents and disruptions to friendship networks. This list of books featuring characters with these specific experiences might help any children in this scenario understand their experiences or encourage them to talk about how they feel.
