Love Waves
written and illustrated by Rosemary Wells
Candlewick Press, 2011
picture book

Rosemary Wells writes two sweet vignettes starring a bunny family titled, “Mama Goes to Work” and “Daddy Goes to Work.” Both Mama and Daddy, even when they’re at work, think of their child send their child love waves, silvery ribbons of words flying over the city.

“”I’m coming home!” the love waves say.

When Daddy is working he wonders

“Are you trying to button your shirt?
Can you tie your shoe?”

And at night, Mama and Daddy reassure their child,

When we are far away
or only down the hall,

we will send you love waves . . .

Love Waves is the perfect book for children struggling with separation anxiety.

Book Play: Retell the story with your child and you using examples from your own lives. Draw love wave pictures together. Write love wave lunch notes to your child.
