Tales For Loving Children
Publisher: Paulist Press
What’s a little girl to do when she keeps hearing Goodbye, Katie from all of her favorite people – — Mummy, Daddy, Granny, and Grandpa? How about singing in a very loud voice, scolding her naughtiest teddy bear, or wiggling her loosest teeth? In I Hate Goodbyes! Katie tries them all, but none of them works. Instead of making goodbyes disappear, the goodbyes hide inside of her — until they sneak out in enough tears to fill Granny’s big swimming pool. That’s when Katie learns a secret about grown-ups. Maybe there are ways to make saying goodbye fell a little better. Mark Hick’s wonderful illustrations are perfectly suited to Kathleen Szaj’s engaging story.
