What do you do when you miss someone every day? If you live in the magical
world of Simms Taback, you wrap yourself in paper, close yourself up in a box
(don't forget the air holes!) and mail yourself to the one you love. From the
creator of the Caldecott Medal-winning Joseph Had a Little Overcoat comes
this tale about what a little girl will do to reach the person she just can't live without.
Filled with Taback's signature vibrant colors and dynamic characters, with a lyrical
text that's as silly as it is moving, this gesture of love will resonate with anyone who's
ever missed someone.
Lesson Plan: Have the children write a letter inside a card to someone they
miss, everyday! Then draw a window frame on the front of the card, similar to the
cover, with a picture of themselves inside. Give each child a stamp, show them
where it goes and how to put their return address on it. Have them take it home
to address to the person "They Miss Every Day".
