    1. Annie on said:

      This book covered a sensitive topic- children whose parents are in the military. In the book, a baby bear wishes he could go with his father when he leaves home to serve in the military. The topic was discussed in a meaningful way that I feel held impact with readers, but was delivered in a somewhat strange way. Maybe it's just because I'm an adult, but I feel that using bears as the characters in this story was a strange choice. However, this was still a good story and I would recommend it to c [...]

      This book really good, it was about a bear that had to leave him family and go off to war, I believe that this would be a good book to introduce to a student who is going through a similar situation, it puts a make-believe twist on a very real situation.

    3. Matthew on said:

      This was a little too abstract for most of my readers (even I was thrown off by some of the phrasing), but I liked the concept, and I was impressed by the art. Very visually appealing.

    4. Angie Quantrell on said:

      Beautifully illustrated story of a bear and his soldier papa going off to help. Sing song and rhythmic, young readers will appreciate the emotions behind the tale about living a military life.

      When a soldier has to leave his or her family for extended service, it's an emotional time for all involved. It can be especially confusing and upsetting for children, who long for the comfort and security of a parent's presence. Papa's Backpack honors the bond between a parent/soldier and a child, and acknowledges the difficult and emotional process of separation during deployment. A young bear cub dreams of accompanying Papa when he leaves on a mission, wanting to stay close to provide comfort [...]

      Carroll, J. (2015). Papa’s backpack. Ann Arbor, MI: Sleeping Bear Press.Rationale: Papa’s Backpack makes a good contribution to a diverse text set because it represents a family who is part of the military culture. The story is told from the perspective of a baby bear whose father is a soldier and must travel away sometimes. Children from military families, especially if they’re going through deployments, would appreciate this compassionate treatment of their story. The author expresses fe [...]

      It's never easy to be separated from a loved one, especially a parent. But soldiers often must spend long periods of time away from their families. In this beautifully-illustrated picture book, a bear cub imagines being able to ride in his father's backpack as he heads off to do work that can often be extremely dangerous. Not only does the little one want to be with his parent, but he also wants to protect him and keep him safe. The rhyming text shows that despite his concerns for his father, he [...]

      A simple yet touching book about a bear who's dad leaves for deployment in the military. The fictional characters yet realistic topic help to lighten this difficult situation that many children face. Beautifully illustrations and sparse text encourage readers to make inferences and connect with the character. This book is appropriate for grades 1-3, with more involved discussion for the older students. This is a great book to read aloud during Veterans Day, Memorial day, or really just anyday, b [...]

      A difficult topic handled gently and sensitively. The rhythm feels like gun fire: "Me and my Papa, papa-papa-pa"The interesting illustrations are somewhat surrealistic, showing their faces and bodies, but other designs carefully represent war or "the sting", and most pictures show a spear in their hand.One page shows a silhouette of this 'child" in Papa's backpack walking in line with seven other animals of various sizes and delicately lined withing the ground upon which they walk are the variou [...]

      An interesting way to address parents who are soldiers going off to report for duty. For our family, it gave us an opportunity to talk about mommy it daddy going to work and his desire to be near us then. What I like about the book:- Beautiful artwork.- Addressing a child's desire to be close to a parent when the parent is away. - The gentle love if Papa Bear displayed in the book. While this book has a good message, the feelings it brings up fort my boy means he tends to pass on this book. A go [...]

      When Papa packs his backpack and puts on his uniform, little Bear wants to crawl inside and go with him. Papa is a soldier and Little Bear must stay home. He wonders what it would be like to smell the smoke and feel the sting of the rain. He fantasizes that Papa would be able to carry him around and give him a hug and kiss. But he knows that soldiers have to go away for awhile so that their children can stay home and play. So Little Bear makes Papa a toy bear to carry in his backpack instead.jul [...]

      Little bear loves his military father and keeps close him ever thoughts. Terse and lyrical, could be helpful for little ones experiencing something similar. I liked the colors and the "trippyness" scratched into the illustrations. I like the visual idea of "the feather in cap" but its drawing made me wonder if it was cultural appropriation of native cultures.

    13. Samantha on said:

      A baby bear tells readers about his papa bear who is also a soldier. In rhyming text he explains that soldiers sometimes have to go away, and that when his papa goes away he wishes he could ride along with him in his backpack. Text reads almost like a chant making it a good read aloud. Artwork has a tribal feel that reminded me of batik fabric. PreK-2.

    14. Ashley on said:

      The story is mostly carried by the beautiful and unique illustrations and is held together with a good concept but overall the execution left something to be desired. So much more could have been said that would have truly made this stand out.

    15. PamPage on said:

      This is a nice book to help children understand parents who must leave be a soldier. I loved the refrain that was used: "I'd ride in Papa's backpack and whisper in his ear". Sensitive with gorgeous illustrations.

    16. molliekay on said:

      Just take my heart out and stomp on it, why don't you?But in all seriousness, this is a beautiful book for children of soldiers. The baby bear would go with its dad, if it could, but it knows that dad is doing good in the world.Now give me that box of tissues.

    17. Lisa Boyd on said:

      Beautiful illustrations, a book with definite rhythm. This would be great for kids who have their parents called to active duty in the military as the main character talks about wishing he could be with his father during his journey without being very specific and detailed on war.

    18. Bethany on said:

      Explores an important topic of adults who must leave love ones to serve in the military. However, I thought it left something to be desired. It is an alternative to share with military families that does not include a particular uniform or branch of service.

    19. paula on said:

      Scratchboard, watercolor, pen and ink, maybe layers of tissue paper? handmade paper? The textures and colors in these illustrations are gorgeously complex, in an earthy palette bathed in sunshine.

    20. Yossi Gremillion on said:

      I would definitely recommend for children of parents who are being or who have been deployed.

    21. Amy on said:

      The artwork is colorful and engaging and topic one that I do not often see in a picture book.

    22. Lupine on said:

      Lovely illustrations. Fills another niche for books for children of military parents who are deployed.

    23. Wendy on said:

      Gorgeous illustrations and a sweet, simple text make this a great book to share in military families.

    24. Jennifer on said:

      I'm not sure it's super helpful to kids who may have a soldier parent but its very lyrical and has nice illustrations.

    25. Sandy Brehl on said:

      Sincere and heartfelt, this story has charm and will fill a particular need. The art is rich and emotive, using a variety of culturally referenced details.
