This is a wonderful, vibrantly drawn book about always carrying the people you love with you in your heart. It follows the Mom and child through their days with pictures of them holding each other in their hearts. It has been good for separation anxiety with my 4 year old.

PreS-K-A cheerfully reassuring book in which a mother describes her day and that of her child, during which she unfailingly holds the boy in her heart. The cast of characters (family, colleagues, and friends) is multicultural. Mixed-media illustrations, as busy as the woman's day, are rendered in bright, saturated colors. Many of the beginning letters of the words are oversize and become a part of the artwork (e.g., the "Y" in a "You" is depicted as two crossed hands holding a heart in which the child floats). Hearts abound. Though the theme of a parent's devotion even in absence is consistent to the point of repetitiveness, the layout and design are not. From full-bleed spreads to neatly framed vignettes to two pages of illustrated building blocks, there is a lack of coherence in composition that seems to stand in opposition to the intended message. Not a real story, but for the child for whom separation brings anxiety, a warmhearted antidote.-Kate McClelland, Perrot Memorial Library, Old Greenwich, CT (c) Copyright 2010.
