A young Inuit child tests her mother, something that children do not infrequently whether they live in Alaska or Santa Cruz. What if, she asks her mom, I behaved in a less-than-admirable fashion: Would you still love me? The mother’s answers are wise and, indeed, loving. Striking watercolors and a rhythmic text charm in this new-at-last-in-paperback edition. Ages 2–5.
The bestselling and much-loved Mama, Do You Love Me? and its tender companion, Papa, Do You Love Me? are paired in this boxed set of board books, perfect for a new generation of families. Accompanied by beautiful watercolor illustrations and reassuring texts, these heartwarming stories share a universal message: that a parent's love is everlasting and unconditional.
