Be the Force Behind the Forces! (And Positively Impact a Military Family)
What better way to connect than through a good book? The right book can help a family build a stronger connection and can carry happiness and joy across great distances. A book is one way to escape the mundane and venture into a land of imagination and help make the separation seem not quite so far away.
“My Mommy is a Hero” and “My Daddy is a Hero” are two books that can help a military family celebrate the heroes in their lives. Each book tells a different story of the family’s hero from deployment to return. Bravery, admiration, community, and leadership are strong themes in each of these books and with colorful illustrations and rhyming words, share a story of service and dedication to a higher cause. These simply-told stories make is easy for children of all ages to relate while assuring them that Mommy and Daddy are indeed heroes.
Help spread the joy of reading and literacy and bring a military family closer by funding a book for a family today. Your donation will help provide an Usborne book and plush to a child for snuggling and reminding them of their loved one – their hero. It will also go a long way to supporting the USO of Indiana and their efforts.
A program utilized by the USO, United Through Reading ®, offers parents the opportunity to be video-recorded reading storybooks to their children. Watching the video while holding the book being read to them helps the children deal with the stress of separation, reinforces emotional connections and cultivates a love of reading.

Usborne Books & More has been in existence for more than 20 years. Usborne books are the most exciting, engaging and educational books on the market today. They are high quality, innovative, lavishly-illustrated and best of all they are the books kids love to read. Usborne’s founder pioneered a generation of books that prove it is possible to create books that compete with the vast media that attracts children today. Usborne Books & More aren’t just any books. The founder of Usborne Books once said, “Children are clever – they are our equals. We shouldn’t talk down to them but look across at them. They should be accessible and also surprising…They should promote wondering. They should be better than good.” From activity books to neat fiction series to internet-linked science and history encyclopedias, Usborne does books better.
Thank you for supporting the service men and women of Indiana and their families.
