9780803733329: A Suitcase Surprise for Mommy

Mommy must travel for business, and Zoran is not happy-he will miss her too much! But what if he gives Mommy one of his special things to take with her so that she will have a part of him with her when she goes?

Like The Kissing Hand, this story offers a usable and comforting solution for kids and parents to help ease times of separation and show that out of sight does not mean out of mind or heart. Iron Chef and working mom Cat Cora and her son came up with this idea when she had to do her own work travel.

About the Author:

Joy Allen lives in Cameron Park, California.

From Booklist:

Zoran is upset that his mother has to go away for work again. Then she suggests that he choose one of his special objects for her to bring with her. Unfortunately, his truck is too big for her suitcase, his robot is too noisy, and he might miss his pirate toy. Despite Mommys assurances, Zoran is disheartened until he realizes the perfect item: a card he drew that reminds his mother how much he loves her. While the topic is familiar, Cora, a mother and Iron Chef alumna, insightfully conveys how both parents and children seek comfort and connection when theyre apart, as well as the importance of verbal reassurances, tangible mementos, and collaboration. The storys concepts and emotions ring true and are accessibly related through the descriptive narrative, which is filled with realistic dialogue and interactions, from hugs to high-fives. The brightly colored, cartoon-style, gouache-and-pencil illustrations include many playful touches that reinforce the comforting tone. A sympathetic portrayal of separation and finding ways to feel close despite distance. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Shelle Rosenfeld
