A Day with Dad
By

Rating

Product Description:

Holmberg offers comfort and a guarded optimism to children dealing with their parents’ separation. Tim lives with his mom in a new town. As the book opens, his dad arrives via train to spend time with him. Holmberg tells the story of their day together with graceful understatement, making clear that the boy’s greatest happiness is just being with Dad again. He wants to make sure that everyone from the hot dog lady to the librarian knows that this man is his father. The pictures, like the text, aren’t flashy (familiar scenes are done with coloured pencil in muted tones), but they convey strong emotions: the nervous expectation before Dad arrives, the pleasure of physical proximity, the slight unease both father and son feel at the end of the day. As the train disappears down the track taking Dad away, the narrator reminds young readers that one day soon, “The train will come back . . . And Tim will spend another day with Dad.” Grades K-3. --Abby Nolan
