Forever or a Day

This début picturebook from Sarah Jacoby unfolds in the form of a conversation of sorts between a narrator that might be a parent and a listener that might be a child across the length of a single day.

What does time mean to you? How do we feel it? How do we see it? Jacoby poses these questions but tellingly never offers definitive answers, preferring instead to provide the reader with intimate images of how time might be spent and made meaningful, usually through important relationships.

Can I Sit With You?

A little girl is out and about in the world, seeing sights both strange and familiar. She’s sometimes surrounded by people and overwhelming noise, and sometimes by herself and quiet. All the time, a little dog is with her. He is unnoticed at first. But whether she is going near or far, he stays right by her side, loyal and true through happiness, sadness, in crowds or all alone, on city streets, in the countryside or at home. Together, they weave their way near and far, knowing that when there is someone special by your side, the world becomes a place filled with wonder.
