In Miss You Like Crazy by Pamela Hall Walnut the squirrel is feeling sad, because he wants to stay home with Mama, but she has to go work. Walnut worries that maybe Mama doesn’t miss him while she is at work the way that he misses her. Mama reassures Walnut that she misses him “only like crazy!” She tells Walnut that he really is with her all day: on her computer screen, in a frame on her desk, and in the locket she wears around her neck. Walnut likes this idea, and asks for a little piece of Mama to keep with him, so that he can have her close to him all day too! This is a thoughtful story for working parents to share with their kids: even though parents may have to work, their children are never far from their thoughts! See this book listed in our catalog
