Tactical 16 Signs Leah Anaya for “Policeman Daddy”
Leah Anaya gives readers a unique perspective of a police officer’s day through a young child’s eyes.
Colorado Springs, Colo. – – Tactical 16 publishing company announced today the signing of Leah Anaya for Policeman Daddy.
In her debut children’s book, Anaya paints a memorable day-in-the-life picture from sunrise to bedtime of a police officer through his small son’s viewpoint. Young readers follow the little boy as he watches his daddy get ready to serve, goes to the police station for a visit, sits in a patrol car, and thinks about how much he misses his dad as bedtime approaches.
“I wrote this book to help children feel comfort over missing their police parent and help them understand what their parent goes through during a typical day at work,” said Anaya, who served in the Army and as a police officer in California and Washington state. “This book is also entertaining for kids who love police officers and are curious about what they do while on duty.”
Policeman Daddy, especially appealing to children from 2 to 8 years old, features colorful illustrations and easy-to-read text. Anaya was able to draw upon her experiences as the daughter of a police officer, a medically retired police officer herself, and the wife of a current police officer with three children to make this story relatable and detailed.
Anaya currently works as a staff writer at Law Enforcement Today and is a peer advocate and peer spousal support advocate for the Wounded Blue and Serve and Protect, two non-profit first-responder organizations serving police officers, their families, and police departments nationwide.
