 '"Don't go, Daddy!" It's the plea that tugs at the heart of every loving father whose child no longer shares his everyday life due to a relationship breakdown. For a young child, accepting how things have changed once parents live apart can be difficult. When 'Daddy time' is occasional instead of constant, saying goodbye for now can be the hardest part of spending time together. In this gentle story about the special bond between a little girl and her father, the fun of sharing a day imagining everyday activities into extraordinary adventures turns to sadness when it is time for him to leave. Tears turn to acceptance with the promise that Daddy will soon return - and there is a special way to know when that will be.' (Publication summary)
