Welcome Home is the first of several books in the, “Hi, I am…” Book Series. This book series highlights the love, joy, pride, obstacles, and challenges our military families face each and every day. Welcome Home Daddy, Love Lexi is a beautiful story about a little girl’s love and pride for her Daddy who is a soldier.
When Lexi was a baby, and too young to remember, her dad deployed. When he receives orders to deploy again, Lexi is old enough to fully understand what this means.
To encourage Lexi during the deployment, her mom helps her to stay in contact with her dad by writing letters, cards, talking on the phone, and video-chatting. This helps until they receive a phone call that changes everything. After this call, Lexi isn’t interested in gifts, cards, or letters; all she wants is for her daddy to come home safely.
When he returns, Lexi understands how wonderful it is for her daddy to hear her say, “Welcome Home, Daddy!”
Never before have I read such an adorable children’s book that touched my heart so dearly. Welcome Home Daddy, Love Lexi is the third book by Florenza Denise Lee that I and my children have read together and I have to confess that Welcome Home Daddy, Love Lexi is my favorite. For those that do not know, my husband is a Marine so the military theme laced throughout this book was perfect for me to read and for my children to read and will be the perfect book for all military families.
Welcome Home Daddy, Love Lexi follows the sweet protagonist of the story called Lexi. Lexi was only a baby when her dad was deployed but at this age, she could not understand, however, Lexi is now growing up and is able to comprehend what it means when her dad is deployed. When Lexi’s dad is deployed once again when she is a little older, the reader will follow Lexi on her journey as she copes with not having her dad around and her wonderful mom is there to help her every step of the way. Lexi’s mom will use many great tactics to soothe Lexi such as writing letters with her to her dad, talking with him on the phone and even video-chatting! The journey is a beautiful one that will inspire children from military families and those that aren’t as the book is accessible to all children and families as the book stresses the importance of family and always being thankful.
The story of Welcome Home Daddy, Love Lexi is one that I was always going to love, and this is thanks to the core military theme and the fact that my husband is a Marine and we have children. The story actually moved me and made me emotional, and it made my children emotional too and that is the pure power of this book and the talent behind Florenza Denise Lee’s literature. All children from military families are going to adore this book but so will every child thanks to the entertaining nature of the book, adorable illustrations and wonderful literature that will move its readers with its beautiful themes.
