I'll Be There by Ann Stott- ADVISABLE

Stott, Ann. Phelan, Matt. I'll Be There. 32 pages. Candlewick, 2011. $14.99. PICTURE BOOK. Content, G. Inside cover: “It’s fun to dress, read, and take showers like a big kid. But it’s a little scary, too. Scampering along a stone wall just out of reach, a young boy asks his mother, “Will you take care of me when I’m big?” This is a touching story exploring all the feelings a young child feels when he/she is trying to be “big” but still in need of a mother’s loving care. We enjoyed this book, and the discussions that followed. EL (K-3). ADVISABLE. Reviewer: SL
