Will You Still Love Me?by Carol Roth, Daniel Howarth (Illustrator)
Said the bunny to his mother, just as sweetly as could be, "When the baby bunnies come, will you still love me?" "Of course," said Mother Bunny. "You're my extra-special one. And I'll love you just as much when the baby bunnies come." Every child is anxious about the arrival of a new brother or sister. In Carol Roth's sweet, comforting story, various animal mothers-and one human one-reassure their little ones that love has no limits, and they will be loved as much as before. Daniel Howarth's soft watercolors tenderly depict the mother-child bond.
"Both grownups and kids should find that its appeal has plenty of staying powerat least nine months' worth." Publishers Weekly
"The answers they receive vary in the details, but all affirm that the child is special and will still be cherished when the new sibling arrives." School Library Journal.

Said the kitten to his mother, just as sweetly as could be, "When the baby kittens come, will you still love me?
"Will we still curl up together in the noonday sun? Will there still be time to play? Will we still have fun?"
"Of course," said Mother Cat. "You're my angel ... yes, it's true. And all the kittens in the world won't change my love for you."
Said the bunny to his mother, just as sweetly as could be, "When the baby bunnies come, will you still love me?
"Will we still have time to hop through the meadow and play? Will you help me find some carrots we can munch all day?"
"Of course," said Mother Bunny. "You're my extra-special one.
"And I'll love you just as much when the baby bunnies come."
Said the mouse to his mother, just as sweetly as could be, "When the baby mice come, will you still love me? Will we still play in the forest? Will you keep me safe and warm? Will you hide me from the rain? Will you shelter me from the storm?"
