A little girl who divides her living arrangements between the houses of her separated parents knows not to take one's personal environment for granted. She thinks about the house she'll live in every day of the week when she grows up. She also imagines welcoming both her parents there. Brightly colored vignettes of present and future home activity and furnishings reflect the love of which the child feels certain midst her constant need to use a suitcase twice each week. (Ages 4-7)
