The book is about four siblings who go to live with their grandparents for the summer. Their mom drops them off and the little girl hopes her dad comes to visit. They don't see their dad a lot because he is always working. But one night, their dad comes to visit and stays for a little before going back t o work driving trucks. He explains all the stuff he did as a kid and that no matter how far he is or how much times passes he is always their dad. The little girl always dreams of him and he is always her dad. This book is good for kids who have separated parents, parents in the military, or parents in jail. This book teaches them that even though a parent is away, doesn't mean that parent doesnt love them. ( )

This is a story of a African American girl who father is absent from her life as well as the lives of her brothers and mother. She never knows when she will see him but is excited when she does. This story shows that with love people can make it through anything. I think this is a good read for any child who is experiencing a situation such as this.

This story is based on the author's, Sharon Wyeth, memories of her father. Although she did not see him very often, Sharon still loved spending time with him. The fact that she did not always spend time with him made her cherish the time with her father even more.

This story is told by a girl who misses her father very much, but only gets to see him once in a while. Her father moves around a lot and takes lots of different jobs, since he’s been having a problem getting his life together. During a trip to her grandparents, her father arrives for a visit. While his visit is a happy one, before long he has to say goodbye again. Yet he reassures her that he is always her father and always loves her, even when he is away. A good book for any child who misses their father, particularly if they are having dreams about him. Review by Book Dads ( )
