    Knock Knock addresses a tough issue in a gentle manner. Author Daniel Beaty presents a young child who is deeply loved by his father and in return, the father is an important role model for the child. One day, the father simply disappears from the child's life and the boy wonders if he will ever see his father again. Finally, he writes a letter and in time, he receives a letter back saying the father will no longer be in his son's life. The father assures the son that despite being an absent father, he will continue to love the boy and that the boy should honor the love he has for his father by growing to be a strong and responsible man.

    The book is beautifully illustrated by Bryan Collier and it is easily apparent that much of the success of Knock Knock is the way the illustrations enhance the written word. This is a powerful book about absent fathers. Whether a child has lost a father to divorce, death, or incarceration, the book will surely be instrumental in commencing the healing process. The author's own father was absent due to incarceration and it is readily apparent that the pain of the separation was effectively transferred to the pages of the book. It is a book which might best be read by the child and his/her caretaker as questions will surely arise. As separation from a parent is one of the most difficult and painful events in childhood, parents and affected children will surely benefit from beginning the healing process by taking in the messages of this book.
