Jennifer A. Ericsson is a children's librarian, a former children's bookseller, and the author of several picture books. She loves to travel, but prefers to do so with her daughter, Annie.
Ashley Wolff has illustrated many books for children, including Who Took the Cookies from the Cookie Jar?, She'll Be Comin''Round the Mountain, and the bestselling Miss Bindergarten series.
PreSchool-Grade 2–This story alternates between the point of view of a young girl at home and that of her mother, who's been away on business for a week. As they describe their individual activities, they both express their excitement that they will soon be together again. What makes this book satisfying is its thoughtful, well-defined structure as the author presents parallels in the actions of the two characters. When the girl is busy with her play-group friends building tall buildings and an airport out of blocks, her mother is looking out the plane window where skyscrapers and highways diminish to the size of toys. As the youngster takes a nap, so too the woman drifts off to sleep to the plane's constant rumble. The typeface is distinct to each speaker. The gouache illustrations focus on the characters with just enough detail to define each changing scene. The pictures are bold and immediate but at the same time exude great warmth. Featuring a loving and supportive family, this title will provide comfort to readers who are faced with separation from a parent.–Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI
