More About I Love You Near and Far by Marjorie Blain Parker; Jed Henry
 
 
 
Overview
I love you long distance, across all those miles. Sometimes parents divorce. Sometimes mom or dad is sent overseas to fight. And sometimes cherished members of the family grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins live too far away to see every day. This sweet rhyming story, written from the child's point of view, is a love letter to those who may not be geographically near but remain very close at heart."

A young anthropomorphic kitten comes to understand that, although her father and grandmother are far away (her father is in the military, and her grandma lives across the country), distance doesn’t weaken the bond she shares with them. (Modern technology and care packages help, too.) Henry keeps his mixed-media artwork simple, with solid colors and unadorned backgrounds, and Parker uses repetition to lullaby effect: “Wherever you live—if it’s near or it’s far.../ I love you wherever, wherever you are.” Moments of sadness are to be expected, Parker suggests (“But, sometimes, it just gets too hard to miss you”), though the ever-present support of the cat’s mother counterbalances the longing she feels for those separated by distance. Readers with absent family members should find solace in the gentle message. Ages 3–5. Illustrator’s agency: Shannon Associates. (Jan.)
