Counting the Days is a heartwarming picture book that shows us what bravery, hope and the unity of family is all about. With her daddy's help, little Hunter counts the days until her mommy returns home from military deployment. Together Daddy and Hunter find creative ways to mark the time while they wait. With age-appropriate text that tenderly invites us along to count the days with Hunter, and beautiful, highly colored illustrations, we find ourselves eagerly awaiting her mommy's return.
