My Father's Arms Are a Boat

Foreword Review — Spring 2013

A father and son face a mother’s death in this tender title illustrated with lovely line drawings and folded-and-cut 3D paper constructions. The sleepless little narrator is alert to every sight, sound, and smell as he and his father watch the stars. Their simple conversation about the natural world helps them moves through profound grief. Ages four to eight.
