Night Catch Book Review

What a wonderful book! This book combines two things my sons love...playing ball with dad, and looking at the stars. Our family is currently preparing for my husband's deployment and the hardest thing for me is trying to prepare the boys for something they don't (and won't) understand.

When a Soldier's work takes him half-way around the world, he enlists the help of the North Star for a nightly game of catch with his son. Night Catch is a timeless story that connects families while they are apart and offers comforting hope for their reunion. This synopsis from the Bubblegum Press is exact and fitting!

Brenda definitely captured the emotions a military family goes through and makes a unique tradition out of the situation. It gives a creative idea of something simple your kids can do while remembering dad at bedtime. It also easily illustrates the distance and time difference in a way a yound child can begin to understand.
I highly recommend this book to anyone with small children who are preparing or currently going through a deployment! Brenda wrote what is now one of our favorite books...Thank You, Brenda!
Night Catch is written by Brenda Ehrmantraut and illustrated by Vicki Wehrman.
