Not yet rated | write a review
Every morning, I play a game with my father.
He goes knock knock on my door
and I pretend to be asleep
till he gets right next to the bed.
And my papa, he tells me, "I love you."

But what happens when, one day, that "knock knock" doesn''t come? This powerful and inspiring book shows the love that an absent parent can leave behind, and the strength that children find in themselves as they grow up and follow their dreams.

Editorial Reviews

"The intimate nature of the text and the detailed visual environment are more suited for close sharing than a storytime, but the book''s versatility suggests that it will see extended use."-The Bulletin
