I Miss You Everyday: 11/02/10

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)Harriet chose I Miss You Everyday by Simms Taback at a recent trip to the library. She liked the cover art and decided to take the book after giving the book a quick flip through to see what the interior illustrations were like. Some weeks she's like this, being extra picky about which books she wants to bring home from the library.

I Miss You Everyday is the story of a young girl living in a city who is missing a friend or relative who lives across the country. She walks through the process of how she plans to visit her loved-one.

The solution is a ridiculous but memorable one. The book reminds me a little bit of Flat Stanley except that the girl isn't flat. The solution would be a box instead of an envelope.

The book's colorful illustrations and the silly plot made for a winner. After reading the book to Harriet, she went back and re-read it to herself, having fun pointing out the girl on each page.
