Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Norah Piehl
This oversized board book explores the simultaneously strong and tender relationship between young children and their fathers. Narrated by a young bear, the text explores the balance between independence and security: "I'm the very bravest bear . . . when I know that you are there. And I'm still as still can be . . . when you're sitting next to me." The illustrations depict father and child bear sharing many activities, from hiking to tumbling to swinging from trees, but does not neglect quiet moments of contemplation and cuddling as well. The soft pastel illustrations place the bears in an environment of forest and mountain, using washes of color to depict different seasons and times of day, from green-tinged morning to purple mountain twilight to deep blue nighttime. The rhyming text provides security and a quick bedtime read—perfect for human families' own cuddling moments. Reviewer: Norah Piehl

I bought this book for my seven year old daughter. She is a big daddy's girl. Even at her age, she loves this book. She smiles and giggles at the story and pictures. Definitly a book to recommend to anyone who is building a book collection for their child.

We bought this for our son when he was about 1. He's 2 now and we read it everyday because his daddy is away a lot for work. It really seems to help him when he's missing his daddy.

I gave this to my husband as a Father's Day Gift, and he was very happy with it. This is a sweet story that dads and their little ones will enjoy reading together.
