Here’s a lovely review from Bobs Books New Zealand
Counting on You by Corinne Fenton. Illus. Robin Cowcher. Pub. Five Mile Press, 2016.
We often use the phrases “I’ll Never Forget you” and “I am Counting on You” with reference to someone we love. This simple yet moving picture book for everybody could have over sentimentalized these feelings but instead puts them in their proper place.
A young boy is flying a kite on windy days on clear blue sky days on days when he is full and on other days when he needs a hug and reassurance. He is remembering a parent who he still needs and will never forget.
Simple poetic text with watercolour and pen and ink illustrations that superbly enhance the text.
A book for discussion and reflection.
