We follow a little girl and her parents as they struggle with having to live in two separate shelters (women & children/men), look for jobs, and stand in long lines to have meals. They meet at parks to play and to celebrate holidays and birthdays. The little girl's shoes are too tight and she misses her bedroom and all the comforts that they had to leave behind.

In the point of view from a little girl, she describes homelessness. She understands that her family have to make sacrifices to be a family. No matter what to her, they still hold that title. Homelessness is everywhere throughout the country. It affects many lives especially children. This book is really good to raise awareness. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0807577073, Hardcover)

A little girl and her parents have lost their home and must live in a homeless shelter. Even worse, due to a common shelter policy, her dad must live in a men's shelter, separated from her and her mom. Despite these circumstances, the family still finds time to be together. They meet at the park to play hide-and-seek, slide on slides, and pet puppies. While the young girl wishes for better days when her family is together again under a roof of their very own, she continues to remind herself that they're still a family even in times of separation.
