"Faraway Father” is a 32-page picture book for ages 4-8. It is the story of a family separated by war, told with warmth and gentle humor, from the perspective of a very young child.
The lovely watercolor illustrations evoke family closeness and would be reassuring for the children of today’s soldiers.
“In this gentle picture book, a family stays connected to Dad while he’s deployed overseas during WWll... Debut children’s author Hill’s cheerful watercolor-and-ink images subtly convey the 1940s while her child-friendly story transcends time and place... A sweet book to share with young children who are separated from someone they love.”
