I Love You All Day Long (Hardcover)
"Do I have to go?" Owen asks.
"Yes," his mother replies.
But his mother sends him off with more than just his lunch. She promises that no matter where he is and no matter what he's doing -- whether Owen is making a new friend or spilling his juice -- she'll love him all day long, from the moment they part until the moment Owen is back in her arms again.
Francesca Rusackas and Priscilla Burris's book is a reassuring tale of how the enduring love of a parent stays with a child whether they are together or apart.
“Owen is particularly lovable…depicted in bright colorful illustrations…”
Marcus Vega may look like the average bully - large, silent, and overwhelming - but inside he is just a boy too big for the quiet kids and too small to fill the shoes of his absent father. Marcus is suspended from school for protecting his brother from a bully and decides his time off would be better spent searching for answers from his father in Puerto Rico. A fast-paced journey of self-discovery about the role of family, friendship, and home. Perfect for 10 to 14. - Jessica
