About this title


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

What does a little boy do when his daddy is going away for a long time? He promises to save one thing every day to show his daddy when he returns; to say, "Good night, Daddy" every night before he goes to sleep; and to mark off each day on the calendar until his daddy's return. If he still misses his daddy, then he remembers all the things his daddy promised to do, and he knows that even though they're very far apart, they're still close in each other's heart.

With soft, tender illustrations and poetic text, this poignant and heartwarming story shows that the love between a father and child can span 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.
