Book Synopsis: Remember When - My Life As A Military Child

This book is designed for military children so they can keep a living record of their childhood. It provides a keepsake for the special moments in their life as they make their journey. Children can document their schools, homes, friendships and anything else that they want and treasure. Moving to support their parents can be difficult, especially every 3 years. They have to start a new school, new friends, new house and basically a whole new life. The intent of this book is to make that process a little easier, knowing that they have something to look back on and something to start new again. When they are all grown and look back on a unique childhood, taking that trip down memory lane. They will always be able to "Remember When".
As we were walking down the stairs of our military stairwell housing and my children with tears in their eyes, were saying goodbye to their friends. I wondered how they were going to adjust. Worried about forgetting friends, they had scrap pieces of paper with hand written notes of phone numbers, e-mail addresses and promises to stay in touch. How would they keep this all together? Life in the military is hard, especially on the children. Not only do they move, but they move every three years. Their lives are turned upside down with a new school, new friends, new town and sometimes even a new country. This book is intended to help military children keep a living record of their time spent growing up around the Armed Forces. They can document their school, sports, friends and special occasions. While getting ready for the next move they can complete their book and look to the promise of starting a new one. Finally, when they are all grown and look back on a unique childhood, taking that trip down memory lane. They will always be able to “Remember When.”

Review- From Amazon

This book is great for the kids! It allows them to keep track of all their friends name,emails, and addresses...they even get to add photos! from everywhere we have been and We just buy a new one for a new place...kinda like a yearbook or a scrape book for them of the places they have grown up and lived....IT"S GREAT!! P.S it's going to be great for them to dig up when they are older and want to show their kids and grand kids what their military life was like...and not just tell them stories but to have a story book!!
