Suzy spends her year in first grade waiting for her father, who is serving in Vietnam, and when the postcards stop coming she worries that he will never make it home. (from Goodreads)
It's true! Suzanne Collins wrote a picture book about the year her father served in the Vietnam War when she was a child. It's a heart-wrenching read -- very well done in that way that it handles such a heavy topic for a young audience. The illustrations by James Proimos do a great job in matching the tone of the text.
