KIRKUS REVIEW

Wispy. A mother consoles her little girl, who's missing her long-absent father, by telling her to listen--"the way you do when you can't see the church steeple, but suddenly the sound of bells comes through the air to you," or as one might for other unseen, unexpected sounds--and then "you'll feel someone far away sending love to you." The little girl wistfully agrees, then adds--injecting some welcome realism--"but I wish he'd come home." Accompanying the pretty, fuzzy sentiment are pretty, fuzzy pictures.
