This follow-up to the best-selling Mama, Do You Love Me? (over one million copies sold in 15 languages!) captures the universal love between a father and child. Set in Africa and featuring the Maasai culture, the beautiful watercolor illustrations, lyrical text, and enduring message are sure to make this another instant classic.
Barbara M. Joosse lives in a small stone house beside a wide creek in Wisconsin. She visited schools in Kenya and Uganda in 1997, and the Maasai and their tenderness toward their children planted a seed in her heart that grew into the idea for this book. This is her twenty-eighth book for children.
Barbara Lavallee's vibrant watercolor illustrations are known around the world, especially in Alaska where she lives. Ms. Lavallee has illustrated many books for children, including This Place is Wild: East Africa by Vicki Cobb. She has twice visited Africa, a place that continues to lure and fascinate her.
