Synopsis

Being away from one's parent can create feelings of insecurity for any young child. But even when they are apart, parents and children can share a special connection. Told from the parent's point of view, In My Heart shows that, no matter where the parent is--or where the child is--the child is always in the parent's heart. A warm, simple, reassuring story, In My Heart is the perfect read-aloud for a parent before leaving for work in the morning or before tucking a child in at night.
