By Mariame Kaba
Illustrated by bria royal

A little girl who misses her father because he’s away in prison shares how his absence affects different parts of her life. Her greatest excitement is the days when she gets to visit her beloved father. With gorgeous illustrations, this book depicts a little girl’s love for her father from whom she is separated because of incarceration.

This book is dedicated to all of the children who miss their loved ones because of a cruel punishment system that does little to make our communities safer.

“This book is a crucial tool for parents, educators, and anyone who cares about the well-being of children who, through no fault of their own, are forced to bear the consequences of our country’s obsession with incarceration. For children who desperately miss their parents, feel confused, or are teased at school, a picture book can go a long way in letting them know that they are not alone and normalizing their experiences. Children are resilient and can handle a lot— but they rely on the adults in their lives to help them make meaning of traumatic situations. Missing Daddy is one tool that makes that possible for the children of incarcerated adults, and we can only hope that it will pave the way for many more.”

— DR. EVE EWING, AUTHOR OF ELECTRIC ARCHES AND GHOSTS IN THE SCHOOLYARD: RACISM AND SCHOOL CLOSINGS ON CHICAGO’S SOUTH SIDE
