"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, this book
can go a long way in letting them know that they are not alone and in
normalizing their experiences." --Eve L. Ewing
