The Magic Box: When Parents Can’t Be There to Tuck You In

by Marty Sederman

Sederman tells an incredibly moving story of a boy whose dad travels a lot for work. There are some great, progressive moments that were great to read, like when the dad kisses his son’s forehead and tells him he loves him, and when the boy tells his mom that when he grows up, he’ll stay home all the time with his kids and his wife can be the one who works. I read this one, and Fly Away Home, and a dozen other books on social issues for an annotated bibliography project for library school. It’s a good one to have in one’s repertoire and/or on a book list for when that patron comes in needing just this.
