Remembrance Day Children’s Book Addresses Unanswered Questions for Families Separated by War

Regina, SK- For children whose parents were called to serve their countries before they were born, there can be a lot of unanswered questions on both sides when they are reunited. Award winning Singer/Songwriter Marny Duncan-Cary explores those questions with her compelling book and accompanying music in Who’s That Man?, now becoming a staple for schools and military families across Canada.

“It would be wonderful if Remembrance Day was more than just 2 minutes of silence to remember those lost. It’s a good time to open the lines of communication between generations and acknowledge the challenges that all families go through when a member is separated from them,” says Duncan-Cary, who wrote the song and book after the events of 9-11 and speaking with her dad - who had been separated from his own father until the age of four - about the devastation of war.

Who’s that Man? is a reminder that war separates families. In a truly gentle way Duncan-Cary opens the reader up to a new dimension of war- the return home…[It] is appropriate for children reading at the Grade 1-2 level. It can be used as a great starting point to gently introduce the topic of war to children as well as showcase the love between a father and child. This touching story is a real treasure.” As reviewed by Rachelle Goodin, University of Manitoba.

Who’s That Man is a beautifully illustrated book complete with a DVD containing a video of the book set to the song, a karaoke version and an interview.
Marny Duncan- Cary is the author of the books Linger and Who’s that Man, both based on songs from her award winning album Reason for Bein’.
“Marny loves every minute of performing and speaking at schools, libraries and teachers’ conventions.”
