"True to the small child's viewpoint, there is no talk of war or patriotism, right or wrong, only that Daddy was 'making sure our country stays safe.'" --Booklist "The straightforward language is pitched perfectly and Life's naturalistic, warm-hued watercolors are reassuring. . . . Full of sentiment." --Kirkus Reviews "Another sensitive, caring title for service families and those who work with them." --School Library Journal
