There’s no place like home! In this short, sweet story a little boy seeks to find reassurance and an answer to this question from his mom.
He questions her, “What if I join the circus and become a clown and I juggle day and night, but then my arms get sooo tired and I want to come back home?”
“Can he come back home? Can we come back home? The unconditional love that a parent and child share can never be broken no matter who we become or how far we travel. This story reassures small children of that. A wonderful and simple rhyme book that small children are sure to treasure at home or in school.” ~ Martha Mosquera, Special Education Teacher
As each of my three children grew up they seemed to ask the same question. While each child asked in a different way the basis was still the same. “If they left would they be able to come back home?” When I said yes to my youngest son, he asked why? I thought how wonderful it would be to write my answer in a story. That’s when I wrote “Can I always come back home?”
