From the Publisher:
Waiting for months for his father to return home, a young boy goes to the dock with a red balloon to make sure that he is spotted in the crowd, but as the boat pulls in and he loses grip on his balloon, the young boy gets much needed reassurance from his mother that his father will still be able to find them.A young boy waits with both excitement and apprehension for his father to disembark from the aircraft carrier returning to port after many months at sea.
