This tender, rhyming picture book is a lively celebration of love.
Little ones adore being independent and trying new things. But they also need Mom and Dad’s reassurance and snuggles. With her spare, lyrical text, debut author Meg Fleming captures the exuberance, the affection, and the tender push-and-pull of life with a child. And illustrator Sarah Jane Wright’s ” evocative illustrations infuse the story with generous helpings of warmth and love.
“It’s simply the best kind of picture book because it has deep meaning for both adults and children. It’s an expression of love that transcends formats like book genre and age brackets. It will be evergreen!” –Ruta Sepetys
“All the sweet connection and brave independence navigated by mothers and their little ones somehow contained in perfect little lyrical lines. It’s delightful — I wish I’d had this book when my own girls were small.”–Liz Garton Scanlon
