Über diesen Titel


My Daddy's going to work, far away in Africa -- without me.

To a child waiting for his father to return from a trip, four weeks can seem like forever. To help ease the pain of separation, a father and son create rituals for each passing day. From blowing kisses to one another at night to marking off days on the calendar, these simple activities help them remain close in their hearts while they are far apart. Together with soft, tender illustrations, this poignant and heartwarming story shows that whether you're across the globe or just across town, the love between a father and child spans any distance.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3Four weeks seems like forever to a youngster whose dad is on a business trip in Africa. Rituals such as the father whispering his sons name to the wind and sending kisses across the ocean and the boy marking off the days on the kitchen calendar help pass the time. When the child and his mother feed the winter birds, he imagines his father watching giant African birds and when he follows animal tracks in the snow, he imagines the man following lions across the sand. When the day finally arrives for the narrator, his baby sister, and his mother to go to the airport, the boy is the first to find his father and leaps into his arms. This gentle picture book will be reassuring for children coping with a brief separation from a parent and is ideal for Fathers Day displays. The nameless childs first-person narrative is gentle and depicts a contemplative lad. The illustrations, done in warm, homey shades, are executed in crayon pencil and depict the boys world as one filled with love and parental support and concern.
