How does a parent explain to his or her child that he loves and thinks of his/her child even when he/she goes to work?Its basal vocabulary, rhyming verse, and pastel illustrations complete with visual silver waves of love appeal to emerging readers. I left for work 42 years ago when my first born was exactly 24 days old. It hurt, but it was a necessity. The first two seemed to understand; the second two questioned. I wish I could have found a children’s book like Love Waves to help me explain.

Love Waves is about a rabbit family–a mother, a father, and their little bunny. Mama remembers her little one all day as she works; Daddy thinks about his little boy the whole time too. Both send love waves to their kit. These messages of love promise their return.

Love Waves is a tender tale that can help parents on the job reassure their children. It shows parent-child bonds in today’s society still exist. What a great bedtime story for parents and offspring to share together again and again! What an appealing basal reader with vocabulary, rhyming words, and pastel illustrations for emerging readers!
