A child's fear of being lost or separated is handled beautifully with colorful pastel illustrations and gentle rhymes. (San Diego Union Tribute 2005-11-26)
Being lost is a major fear central to childhood, but fears are soothed in this collection of 11 deceptively simple verses. The imagery is vivid--a mother or father rows a rowboat, rides a horse, drives a race car, or shoots through space in a rocket-ship until the child is found, brought back home, and enveloped in love and safety. (GoodReads.com)
The greatest fear of every parent and child is to be separated from each other. I Promise I'll Find You addresses this fear sensitively, but without minimizing the feelings of anguish. Young readers will be reassured to know the lengths to which adults will go to find a missing child. The story of a mother searching for her lost child is told in first person in 11 rhyming verses. The endearing message is one of unconditional devotion. There is great variety in the artistic style, media, and visual perspectives in Sheila McGraw's illustrations. However, similar features create continuity and, with assistance, children can find in the picture a small, featureless figure gesturing to his mother. The author's message is about situations in which parents and children experience long, anxious periods of separation.... However, the story is warmly reassuring to children who simply have a fear of being lost and to those who have experienced an unintentional separation from parents in a public
place. (Karyn Wellhousen Disney Family.com)

Condition: Used - Very Good - Very gently used. Tight binding and clean pages”
It is a worn out library book with writing, in pen, in the book. The edges of the book are quite worn down. I am extremely disappointed in the condition of this book.
