5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for toddlers, preschoolers, young elementary children Jan. 23 2008
By Lindsay - Published on Amazon.com
Great book for families with a "road warrior" Daddy. The children are sad to see Daddy leave, but figure out lots of ways to communicate with him (email, phone calls, reading a homemade book the Daddy wrote, making a calendar of events) and keep busy until his return.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for children in commuter families Oct. 5 2009
By L. Khaw - Published on Amazon.com
I babysit frequently for a little boy (2 years old) whose father travels overseas for months at a time and then returns for a couple of days. While he's a bright and well-adjusted little guy, I can tell that he does have questions about his dad's absence. I saw this book in the library once and read it to him. Overall, he loved this book and requested to read it multiple times. The picture flaps were a great idea. It helped him understand what Dad does whenever he isn't home such as what he eats, where he sleeps, who he meets, how does he get there, etc. I think children often have questions like these but may not necessarily know how to articulate it. I am appreciative of the fact that this book pays attention to that. One suggestion I'd have is to use this book as companion with a children's atlas or map, and children can physically see where the absent parent is. Overall, this is a great book and has been very helpful for this family.

3.0 out of 5 stars Helpful for young kids with road warrior dads Nov. 19 2009
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
This book has simple illustrations and a short simple story about a family in which the dad travels. While it may be helpful for some families in which the dad travels frequently it also mentions specifics that might not be true for/work for your family. If you have a road warrior daddy who also works a lot and might not be giving the kids breakfast, taking them to the park, giving them their bath, etc. it might not fit with parental roles in your family. Also if Daddy travels a lot you might not be baking him a cake from scratch to welcome him home.

Great book for those with families where daddy does some traveling. Our daughter likes to read this book with her dad before he goes, and then wants to read it each day that he's away. Very sweet!
