'I love you like the sun loves the earth,' said Mama. 'When you feel the warmth of the sun, I will be loving you from where I am.'

Little one is loved, but also worried. Mama must go away for a while, and Little One needs reassurance. What if Little One can't hear Mama while she is gone? What if Little One can't see Mama? What is Mama can't find Little One again?

Mama has answers to all these questions, showing Little One how to watch the night sky and listen to the wind and, finally, how they will find each other again where the sky touches the earth.

Loving, lyrical, and fall of a mother's inexpressible connection to her child, Meet Me at the Mon is a true treasure of a book.
