About this title

Synopsis:

The widow of tennis star Arthur Ashe, who recently died of AIDS, offers a photographic portrait of Ashe's relationship with his six-year-old daughter during his illness, accompanied by the child's reflections on living with and helping her father.

From Kirkus Reviews:

Narrating in the voice of their daughter, now seven, the late tennis star's wife portrays the warm relationship between her husband and the little girl. The poignant, primer-simple, present-tense text tells how they read to each other, laugh and sing and pray together; Camera picks up balls when Daddy gives lessons, he washes her hair. When one isn't feeling well, the other helps--``On my bad days, when I'm sick and have to stay in, Daddy takes good care of me''; on Daddy's bad days, Camera hands him his pills and takes his temperature. She also visits him in the hospital, explaining that ``Daddy got AIDS from a blood transfusion during a heart operation.'' The focus here is Ashe's AIDS, from the child's point of view; the author and her husband conceived the book to ``give other parents a way to discuss AIDS with their young children.'' Splendid b&w photos--sometimes several on a spread--make it clear that, for this family, AIDS never hindered a loving relationship or the hugging and kissing that are natural between parent and child. ``For Camera, AIDS was simply an illness--and like any other illness, it was to be treated with compassion and support.'' A touching, and invaluable, legacy. (Nonfiction/Picture book. 4-8) -- Copyright ©1993, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
