Meet Buddy and go on a magical journey with him, from the toy store to the battlefield and back home again. Buddy the Soldier Bear is a delightful tale of a stuffed bear who dreams of adventures and being part of a family. When he finds himself in a care package for a soldier, he embarks on quite an adventure, indeed. Written by the daughter of a WW II veteran and the mother of a soldier who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, you can feel the love poured into this story. Illustrated by a talented soldier who was deployed with the author's son, the book tells a heartwarming story of how dreams can come true, and so much more. A portion of the proceeds goes to nonprofit organizations who help active duty military and veterans. When sending care packages to soldiers, she always dreamed of writing a children's story that could give back to our brave warriors. Through her writing, she hopes to inspire children to dream big, and bring awareness to military and veteran causes.
