Daisy Ramona waits for her hardworking dad to come home for their nightly motorcycle ride around their town. The two tour the town greeting the people they know. Although changes are occurring in their immigrant town, Daisy knows that the love of their neighbors is everlasting as she heads for home with her dad. This is great story to read when talking about family traditions, as it is a homage to the author and her father's relationship when she was a child. The illustrations are done in muted colors to signify the past.
