Summary
When he is told that the theme for Parents' Night is going to be patriotism, Caleb is disappointed that his father, a soldier, won't be able to attend, but realizing the show is important, Caleb uses his father as the inspiration to create the night's best patriotic display in his absence and in his honor.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Caleb’s class is making projects that represent patriotism to display at Parents’ Night. Molly dresses up like the Statue of Liberty and Kareem draws a map of the United States. But Caleb can’t think of a single way to show what patriotism means to him. Besides, his dad can’t even come to Parents’ Night because he is far away, serving as a soldier. Then, when Caleb really starts thinking about his dad and what he is doing for the country, inspiration finally strikes!

Here is a book that celebrates the men and women serving the United States in the armed forces today, as well as the families that give up so much to support them. First-time author Linda Skeers and Ard Hoyt, illustrator of John Lithgow’s I’m a Manatee, have created a classic story, full of warmth and humor, that will resonate with families all across the country.
