I love you long distance, across all those miles. Sometimes parents divorce. Sometimes mom or dad is sent overseas to fight. And sometimes cherished members of the family--grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins--live too far away to see every day. This sweet rhyming story, written from the child's point of view, is a love letter to those who may not be geographically near--but remain very close at heart.
