Hugs on the Wind
A lyrical, luminous picture book about missing a loved one.
Little Cottontail misses his grandfather and the hugs, smiles, and jokes they shared. As he plays in the meadow, he thinks of ways that the wind, stars, stream, and trees can help him send hugs, kisses, and other messages to his grandfather. The text is careful to leave open the question of whether grandfather is deceased or just living far away, making the book meaningful to any small child who misses a loved one.
