#BlueStarNeighbor and author, JoAnn Sky, gave back to Blue Star Families and our #milkids this holiday season. This wonderful Neighbor donated 100 of her new books, Santa’s Dog, to the #milkids at our Stars, Stripes, and Snowflakes holiday party at Joint Base Meyer-Henderson Hall.
Santa’s Dog is a heartwarming tale for youngsters and the young-at-heart. Readers follow the adventures of Santa’s dog, Lance, when he falls out of the sleigh one Christmas Eve. He’s taken in by the animal shelter and then brought home by a military family who needs some help as Dad is called to serve his country. When Christmas Eve comes the next year, Lance must decide whether to return to the North Pole with his friend Santa or stay with his new family.
The book’s focus around deployment is a helpful way to tie the holidays to some of the real-life challenges military families face. Many military families are separated during the holidays. This book does a great job of not only bringing some light to this not so ideal situation while teaching military children how to cope with it!
This is the perfect gift for either your kids or any military family you may know. JoAnn Sky even created a coupon for our Blue Star Families members! Use the promo code: BLUESTAR at checkout for 20% discount on website purchases.
