No, this is not a happy lighthearted little book, but it is one written with such tenderness and preparation for a child that no matter what the day brings she will always be surrounded and protected by love. Dr. Claus' book shares the illustrations of Christopher Vassallo who captures the same degree of warmth and reassurance that make this text, this book a true gift of love. Children need to be informed about matters such as this - matters that include death, tragedy, and heroism, and at present there are probably no better books to introduce these difficult topics than this well conceived and presented important book Grady Harp, July 11
We meet a little girl, surrounded by love, protected and cared for. A child who leaves her home in the morning content in the knowledge that all is well, only to return to find the harsh happening that has taken away her beloved father. Her dad, a Fireman, gave his life on that faithful day so others would live. Although that day he became a hero to many, in the heart of this family he already was. Told with truth, sprinkled with compassion, this book will remind all of us of the past, make us proud of those who gave their lives so others may live, and remind us of those left behind .It is not a book of fluff, but it is a book of true love, courage, and hope. Excellent job, highly recommended for young and old alike.
Her father, a NYC fireman, went to work one morning and ended up giving his life on September 11, 2001. He, like many others on that terrible day, became a hero by risking his life to save others.
Before his death, he promised his daughter that he would buy her a NY Yankees cap, and that promised was fulfilled with his gift of love.
Truthfully written, yet compassionate, this story will help children to understand and deal with the loss our country suffered on that day.
The book may prompt a parent-child discussion of the events of 9/11. Grade school children will enjoy the story, and parents will be touched by this remembrance's expression of love, pride, gratitude, and loss.
