In the beautifully illustrated book Coming Home Greg Ruth touches on one of the most difficult and wonderful experiences for many families: the moment when a service member returns home. The nearly wordless story demonstrates through the detailed water color and pencil drawings the intense amount of emotion that both those coming home and those waiting for loved ones may feel in those last few hours and minutes of separation. The joy and relief displayed on the characters’ faces will bring a smile (and maybe a tear) to the face of readers. This would be an especially appropriate and book to read and discuss with a little one getting ready to see mom or dad after a long absence. See this book listed in our catalog
