You've got to check out this video posted by a woman named telin21 of her military husband, away on deployment, reading "Farmer Mickey" to their 2-year-old daughter on pre-recorded video. The little girl is fully engaged, and appears to be thrilled to get some face time with dad. The video, which I first saw on The Daily What, already has 18,000+ hits.
For military families interested in having a deployed parent read to children back home, there's a program just for you. It's called "United through Reading," and you can click here for more information.
So please, take a look at the video, and make sure you watch the whole thing:
