Only on Visiting Day do I get to tell Daddy everything that has happened over the month, while I sit in his lap and he pulls on my braids…
On visiting day a little girl and her grandmother get ready. First, there’s the long bus ride upstate, during which they share food, stories, and hope with the others making the trip. And then there’s Daddy, waiting with a hug and a smile, ready to enjoy some time with his family. After all that, it’s back home, where Grandma and the little girl count their blessings and wait for the time when Daddy will get to come home to them for good.
With beautifully rendered prose and illustrations, this is a very special celebration of unconditional love from an award-winning author-and-illustrator team.
