Nari’s dad may be in a wheelchair, but that’s never stopped them from having wonderful times together.
Such a touching picture book.
In this beautiful work, a young girl and her father spend time together. Her father may be in a wheelchair, but that doesn’t mean they can’t find a thousand different ways to bond and many common interests.
The father is apologetic when he isn’t able to, say, ice skate with his daughter, but the young child understands a lot about love and family even at her young age. Never does she request something of her dad that he cannot give her, but even if she would, her father would do everything possible to give her just that.
The illustrations are visual poetry. They work with the story and are incredibly atmospheric. The characters are charming and their love true. I did wonder about the mother of the girl – never is she shown in the pictures – but I understand that this is a celebration of the bond between a daughter and her father.
