Her daddy went away to fight for our country. And he came home changed. What's a young family to do when a parent is injured? How might they respond to curiosity? In this tender account based on her childhood experiences, beloved author Tara McClary Reeves shares how her family adapted to the extensive physical losses her father, Marine Corps Lieutenant Clebe McClary, sustained. With warmth and humor, this book encourages children and spouses facing similar trials to cherish the gift of family. To hold on to faith. And to choose to be loving heroes on the home front. Is Your Dad a Pirate? will challenge your perspective and deepen your commitment to love.
My thoughts: IS YOUR DAD A PIRATE? is a cute and thought provoking children's story. The dad was in the military (Marine Corp) and came home missing an eye and a part of an arm. When he wore a black patch over his eye everyone wanted to know if he was a pirate. This is the story of how the little girl learned to answer No, he's a hero. She also grew to respect her mom's heroism too as the dad needed some special care.
A very sweet story. Recommend for military children (and others around military bases as well as the rest of the country) to learn that sometimes physical sacrifices are made for the country and these people truly are heroes.
