The little boy in the story explains that his mum goes out to work, but he knows she still loves him and thinks about him all the time. He describes all the things that he knows his mum would like to be doing each day, such as cuddling him, playing games and doing lots of other activities. How does he know all this? Because when his mum comes home from work, she does all those things with him!
The love the mother in the story feels for her little boy comes across very strongly in the illustrations.
