With unadorned, heartfelt prose and idyllic images, Braun (I Love My Mommy) conveys just how wonderful it feels to spend a day alone with Daddy. The narrator is a bear cub, and both the cadence and reportorial tone of his words easily could have been transcribed from a preschool show-and-tell. "On our way home, Daddy raced me. And I won!" Braun's acrylic pictures strike a lovely balance, as he places his genial, naïf-styled characters within majestically scaled landscapes (in one spread, father and son are dwarfed by a broad, cloudy sky, as the sun peeks from behind distant pine trees). Daddy, by turns strong, goofy (he lets the cub perch on his stomach and feed him berries), reassuring and firm (there's no waffling when it's time to go home), makes the whole world seem endlessly expansive and utterly cozy at the same time. Ages 2-5. (June)Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
On Our Way Homeby Sebastien Braun
When they arrive home, Daddy tucks his sleepy
This warm and heartfelt picture book celebrates the love between father and child. Together, Daddy Bear and Baby Bear walk through the forest, racing and resting and gazing at wonderful things on the way: golden leaves falling from the trees, the big yellow sun going down, and beautiful stars twinkling overhead.
When they arrive home, Daddy tucks his sleepy little bear into bed with a kiss and a cuddle. With its gentle, simple text and lovely art, On Our Way Home is the perfect bedtime story.
