Long Distance Goodnight Kisses – A New Children’s Book by Ann M. Hughes

Long Distance Goodnight Kisses shares the story of a working mom traveling across the country for a job she loves but struggling to let her young daughter know her first choice was being at home with her. This is a story of how long distance goodnight kisses helped bridge the gap that distance created. My hope is that other traveling parents can read this book to their children to let them know that no matter how far away they are, love is always present.
