Business In Bangkok

Business In Bangkok


Written by Lynn Westerhout and Illustrated by Chum McLeod


When Mommy goes on a business trip to Bangkok, Corey and his dad must work together to keep the house running smoothly.

When Mommy says she has to go on a business trip to Bangkok, her son Corey balks. "She can't go," he says to his dad. When his father replies "Why not?" the boy finds a multitude of reasons from "Who will make my lunch?" to "Who will fix my bear?" to "Who will scrub my back?" to "Who will give me a hug?" Each time Dad shows him that father and son can handle whatever comes up together, and he explains that Corey will have extra special mommy-hugs the moment Mother comes home.

For children under eight, this humorous approach to traditional mother-work and children's feelings of fear is sun-filled and packed with fun.
