Visiting you

2018

by Rebecka Sharpe Shelberg and Andrea Edmonds

"Setting out to visit a loved one, a child curiously asks a fellow commuter, "Who are you going to visit?" In answer to this simple question, the child learns about the love and loss in the life of a stranger: a father who lives apart from his small daughter, a husband who has lost his wife, a granddaughter who is forgotten by her grandfather, and a mother who fears for her son's recovery. After each conversation, the child understands that the other commuters have someone in their lives that they love "as much as I love you," and it is this understanding that allows the child to explore the most universal of human experiences: the power of love in the many different forms that it can take."--Provided by publisher
