From the acclaimed duo that brought us Swirl by Swirl that has also been featured in a Bindle, Sidman and Krommes remind us that sometimes, if spoken from the heart, wishes really can come true in this wonderfully relatable book about a working parent missing her family, a child missing her mommy, a loving family that wishes time would stop and they could spend the day together. The text is limited but the artwork lends itself to a more descriptive story that can be shared when one pays attention to the details. And the book does just that... beckoning readers to curl up together to savor it again and again and notice new details with each new telling. It reads as a song and the beautiful scratchboard art inspires children to use all the materials provided to create their own scratchboards and cozy wintery scenes.
