A simply written socio-emotional book that affirms children's feelings about missing Daddy. It draws on the healing and ever-present images in nature. The illustrator, Jim Finlan, has beautifully captured a mother spending the day at the park with her children to heal their spirits. The repetition and colorful images will appeal to even the very youngest of audiences. The reason for separation is never defined, only that Daddy misses them too. This book could be applied to many different situations involving a short or long-term separation. And could be used by parents, educators and care givers as a way to show children a positive and concrete way to cope with difficult feelings.
