Overview

A beloved bestseller now available in Spanish.
Mama, do you love me? Yes I do Dear One. How much? In this universal story, a child tests the limits of independence and comfortingly learns that a parent's love is unconditional and everlasting. The story is made all the more captivating by its unusual Arctic setting. The Iyrical text introduces young readers to a distinctively different culture, while at the same time showing that the special love that exists between parent and child transcends all boundaries of time and place. The story is beautifully complemented by graphically stunning illustrations that are filled with such exciting animals as whales, wolves, puffins, and sled dogs, and a carefully researched glossary provides additional information on Arctic life. This tender and reassuring book is one that both parents and children will turn to again and again.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2-This Spanish translation has a beautifully glowing text. It tells the story of a young arctic child who seeks constant reassurance of her mother's love. The questions she poses are playful and innocent, while her mother's answers are lyrical and poetic. Whether the child mischievously throws water on a lamp, runs away from home, or becomes a fierce polar bear, she is assured that her mother's love is ever present and everlasting. The illustrations are large and colorful, offering magnificent glimpses into arctic life. A glossary that explains certain terms and names of animals specific to the region is included. An endearing title to read aloud.-Donna J. Murray, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
