Piper Reed Navy Brat

Piper Reed is a great character to read about on Veteran’s Day – today – the day our country honors the men and women who serve or have served in the military.

Piper Reed is proud of her Navy Dad and her Navy family. Piper calls her father Chief and loves to salute. She has never minded the moves the family must make because of the military but then again she has never had to move in the middle of the school year before. In Piper Reed Navy Brat, Piper’s father announces they are moving from a very comfortable home in San Diego to military housing in Pensacola, Florida. Piper feels her life has come undone. But change can bring surprises as Piper finds out. Piper is an adventurous fourth grader never lacking in excitement. -Recommended by Laura Dixon, Outreach Service Section

    Piper is the middle child in a Navy family. Her father, “the Chief”, has been transferred again; this time to Pensacola (Pepsi-Cola according to little sister Sam), Florida. After some resentment, Piper bounces back. She starts her “Gypsy Club” again and leads her new-found friends on adventures. You will laugh aloud when Piper names their new poodle puppy Bruna, when she tries to pass off her little sister as a Gypsy fortune teller, and when she tells everyone to “Get off the bus!”. If you are a fan of Ramona and Junie B., you need to read this one, too!
