Sir Julius's Review:
I liked this story. It taught me that if I feel sad that it is okay to talk to someone about it. Sometimes I miss my dad when he goes to work too. I was happy that the girl didn't feel sad anymore and that she played with with her dog again. I was starting to feel really bad for him.
I really like to find unique stories for kids, and this is one of them. This book could be a great resource for a child that is in therapy, and perhaps feeling awkward about his or her situation. However, it is also a valuable lesson for other children, who may not need therapy, to be sensitive to what their peers may be going through. Overall, I think the author did a great job creating a story on a child's level that promotes compassion and understanding. Well done, Corine!
