Someday with My Father

Helen Elizabeth Buckley, Author HarperCollins Publishers $12.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-06-020877-6
Eagle's pictures, sparked by tones of red and yellow, allow beginners to visualize the good times she dreams about sharing with her father, someday. She looks forward to their skiing trip, fishing, sailing and hiking. Crowning every adventure, her father will compliment his child: ""What a good skiier you are!'' ``What a good fisherman you are!'' and so on. Just when readers are beginning to suspect the father makes promise he doesn't keep, author Buckley finishes her tender story with an unpredictable disclosure. The little girl's leg is in a cast and her anticipated ``someday'' will be the time when the cast comes off. Right now, faithful Dad will sit by her bed and read to her. ``And when he is finished, I will say: `What a good reader you are!' '' (48)
