Told in soft Fall and sunset colors, ASK ME is a beautiful story told in dialogue solely between father and daughter.  She shares her thoughts and feelings with her father in an effortless way, and the reader can feel his unconditional love through his patient responses.  The nostalgic feel for the simple message of taking the time to listen to his child will not be lost on the audience of those reading this book.  It will truly motivate readers and listeners alike to want to share a walk like the one described in this children's book.
