*Michelle Obama will host a screening of a military-themed episode of Disney Channel’s “Doc McStuffins” for families of veterans at the White House on Monday, Nov. 10 as part of the Joining Forces initiative.

For those without little ones, “Doc McStuffins” centers on a 6-year-old girl who communicates with and heals stuffed animals and broken toys out of her backyard playhouse clinic. It airs daily on Disney Channel and Disney Junior.

The Veterans Day episode (airing Tuesday, Nov. 11 at 9:30 a.m.), titled “Training Army Al,” includes a storyline focusing on the common emotions young children face but find difficult to express when a parent or loved one is deployed.

A Disney Publishing storybook inspired by the episode will be available beginning on Dec. 2.
