I Will Keep You Safe and Sound by Lori Haskins Houran -- ESSENTIAL

Houran, Lori Haskins I Will Keep You Safe and Sound 32 pgs. Cartwheel Books, 2013. $16.99. PICTURE BOOK.

Page after page of loving animal parents caring for their offspring through difficulties such as rain, heat, a long winter, and the threat of predators. A simple, lilting rhyme accompanies the soft, beautifully-rendered illustrations. A pleasure to read aloud, this one is perfect for right before bed, during thunderstorms, or any other time when children may wish for cuddles and reassurance. The love radiating off the pages should leave little ones and adults alike with a safe, warm, cozy feeling.
