Faraway Families Picture Book Standard Edition
Faraway Families is a beautifully illustrated children’s book following best friends, Mae and Jae, two young girls who are learning to stay connected to their family members who do not live nearby.
Spending time together, whether talking on the phone, video chatting, doing special activities or taking family vacations, helps to build strong family connections for young children. The distances, modes of travel and communication vary but Mae and Jae share the experience of maintaining these special relationships when in-person visits are not possible as often as they would like.
I purchased this wonderful book for a mother of three boys living in Canada with family in Israel. She had been looking for a book with this message for a long time. The book was well received. The little ones love it. It is well written and illustrated!
With so many of us home this holiday season, and most probably not seeing our dearest loved ones, I'd like to recommend this wonderful book that helps explain to kids that even when we're far away, the love in our hearts remains the same.
The authors have given great ideas for keeping in touch with loved ones that live far away. My family loves this book and we have given it as a gift to all the cousins that live far away.
