This latest reassuring mother-and-baby story, reminiscent of the author’s No Matter What (2008), features a massive mother polar bear who reassures her cute little baby in gentle rhymes that she will always be there. The mother’s assurances that she’ll be there at playtime and scary times are heightened by the heavily outlined figures of the polar bears set off against the vast Arctic wasteland. We track the pair as they wander through a snowy forest (Dodd uses foil to embellish such scenes), as they swim through a gray sea, and to the moment where the baby polar bear looks very small and lost on the right-hand page as its mother approaches from the left: “If you’re ever feeling lost, / know that I will find you.” Bright banners of color forming the aurora borealis make a magnificent backdrop for the mother’s promise to help make the baby’s dreams come true. Not a new message, but nicely delivered with soft, comforting characters. Preschool-Kindergarten. --Connie Fletcher
Though expressed by a mother polar bear in the snowy Arctic, this is a very warm message of love to a small child. In quiet, lilting verse the bear mother assures her little one that she will always be there, no matter what the circumstances-sharing in her tot's happiness, consoling her in sad and scary times, finding her when she's lost, and always encouraging her hopes and dreams. The best part, of course, is mom's heartfelt promise that she will love her child forever. The simple digital illustrations are sweet and comforting, usually rendered in stark white and black against muted background hues; most feature close-ups of mother and child embracing or enjoying activities in each other's company. Some scenes are particularly striking-one spread depicts a bold, blue night sky with a bright full moon casting the duo's reflections on still water; another spread shows the bears marveling at the vivid colors of the aurora borealis-but the general quietness of the artwork reflects the gentleness of a mother's calm, heartfelt assurances. The message is universal, and the words can't be said enough. The bears are certainly stand-ins for any adoring mother-child pair. (Final, foil-embellished art not seen.)

words and feelings. Here is a catalyst for bringing dads and kids together. There are very few well written picture books
about dad's love for his child(children). This jewel can give fathers the words to express their love for their kids.
