This "Care Package from the Heart" uses simple verse helps a child reflect on and express the love s/he shares with their dad.
This set of cards offers a wonderful way for kids to "talk" with Dad by sending him notes. It's also a great for helping kids understand and express their feelings for temporary separations, such as travel.
The book disappears when you've written the postcards.
S/He liked playing with the cards and reading the prayers and "squeezing my eyes real tight."
Because the Dad in our house travels for business, these are handy to have when our toddler asks where he is. S/He is really too young to understand all that the postcards offer, but they are wonderful and s/he can still remember "my Daddy."
With this set of illustrated postcards, a child can not only remember dad, but send him a note.
The cards offer wonderful, inviting ways to open a dialogue with a child about his/her feelings and fears when dad is away.
