"Helping My Hero!!" is an early-reader book for 4th-6th grade children, whose parent may have combat trauma. This book tells the story of two military families and their experiences dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Christ-centered solutions are presented for the issues the families face.The book contains explanations of many of the issues and terminology the children encounter. Scripture verses are highlighted which help the child with the issue addressed in each chapter. "Discovery" items and "Positive Activities" provide suggestions for taking action. And each chapter ends with a prayer by one of the main characters and his or her promise for action.This is book two in a series of children's books produced by Cru Military, a division of Campus Crusade for Christ. The first book, "My Hero's Home!!" is for K-3rd grade children, and the third book, "Hurting Heros!!" is for teenagers. All the books follow the same structure used in the book "When War Comes Home," by Chris and Rahnella Adsit and Marshéle Carter Waddell, which is a workbook for wives of combat veterans dealing with PTSD or TBI.More information about the resources produced by Cru Military (formerly Military Ministry) can be found at www.crumilitary.org.
