Jo has a bit of fever, and would like both of her parents to stay home to care for her; sadly, her mom must go off to work. Jo spends a quiet day in the care of her stay-at-home father, waiting for Mom to return with a promised surprise. All day long Jo looks out the window waiting for Mom, and in the meantime she sees all her friends from the neighborhood — there goes the mailman, and there's the window cleaner, and Mrs. Ali from next door. But when will Mom be back with her surprise? This classic children's story sensitively portrays an ethnically diverse family and community, while Eileen Browne’s softly shaded art brings the endearing characters to life.
