Coming Home

Written and illustrated by Greg Ruth

Feiwel & Friends



The story of military homecomings, Greg Ruth's Coming Home focuses on a boy reuniting with his military mother, as well as other reunions (and dogs!).

Every day, soldiers leave their families to protect others.
We love them. We miss them when they're gone.
And we want them all to come home.
They are our heroes.

Bank Street Best Children's Book of the Year, CCBC Choice (Univ. of WI)
