Roseanne Kurstedt took a daily ritual with her son and turned it into the delightful children's story, And I Thought About You.

I don't have kids, so I can't judge this from what they would like. That said, I saw this author at a local book reading and I had to buy a copy for my sister. And I Thought About You is a conversation between a mother and son both sharing their day. Mom goes to work (and she seems to have a fairly high-powered job). And that's it! There's no more comment on Mom going to work. It's just a fact of life, but she's always thinking about her son. I liked that honest and non-judgmental attitude.

So I
