Greg Ruth's incredibly poignant picture book, COMING HOME, beautifully illustrates the story of a young boy waiting to reunite with his military parent at the airport. It's garnered immense praise from outlets like The New York Times, who wrote, “Coming Home makes as strong a case as a picture book can for visual storytelling, and for making few words count.”
As long as American troops are serving overseas, there will be children waiting to be reunited with them. In Ruth's nearly wordless picture book, readers follow the anxious progress of a young boy in a red T-shirt as he looks through the crowds of returning veterans and their loved ones. Along with him, there's a border collie dashing into its owner's arms, a man tenderly touching the belly of a pregnant woman, tight embraces, and comradely photo shoots. Ruth's skillful depiction of a variety of people simultaneously experiencing joyful reunions culminates in a wildly exuberant "MOM!" as the boy spots the person he's been searching for. Respectful and as handsome as it is useful, this book has a place in most collections.—Miriam Lang Budin, Chappaqua Library, NY
