See You Someday Soon

We rated this book:


A little child is missing someone who is far away. The child wants to see the person right away, but distance is a problem. The child tries to think of ways to get to the person, maybe by taking a rocket or a jetpack or even building a catapult to fly through the sky, but things get in the way—things like school and soccer and the money to build the flying devices. So letters and pictures sent through the mail will have to do. And they can talk on the phone and see each other through the computer, but it isn’t the same being together and hugging. In the meantime, they plan and talk and write until they can see each other soon.

Pat Zietlow Miller has written a sweet story many youngsters will relate to after being separated from grandparents, aunts, uncles, and other loved ones through the pandemic. The lyrical text expresses the longing the child feels and will help youngsters learn to deal with the sadness. The illustrations by Suzy Lee leave open the idea of gender for the child and relationship for the older person. Clever die cuts add interest.
