And I Thought About You
Join a working mother and her child as they engage in a heartwarming, daily welcome-home routine. From the early morning, "Blup Blup" sounds of the coffee maker, to the "Zoom Vroom" sounds of playing in the park, this book celebrates the relationship between a working mother and her child. The playful images of the mother at work set next to the child's daily activities add to this warm and tender piece. "And I Thought About You" honors the unbreakable bond between mother and child.
A Look Inside
"A colleague of mine said that it was one of the best books that she had read for children of working mothers. I immediately purchased the book, and I could not agree more. It eloquently stated what I try to fumble to tell my kids every day."
-Mastering Mommy Brain
"Such a lovely evocation of life - ideal, and love - complete: life before the fall, each other where we are inseparably happy, thoughts without afters...Too often books for children have lurking dangers---here even dinosaurs and co. bask in gentleness, as they must have done, once upon a time."
"First and foremost my girls really liked the book. While my wife read it to them, I lay with my eyes closed listening to her read and I was so very moved. I'm sure if I was moved thinking of my wife as a working mother, or for myself but I cried silently because I was so touched by all the images, and the tenderness in what you wrote and how you described it. I wish you all the success you wish upon yourself, and I thank you. It was a very special family moment and not one I'm likely to forget anytime soon. If I do, I need only pick up the book again to be reminded."
-Todd, father of two girls
