Raves & reviews:

Praise for I Will Keep You Safe and Sound

"The reassuring message of this book — that parents are there to care for and protect their offspring — as well as the large illustrations and spare text, will appeal to a very young audience." —School Library Journal

"Nicely cadenced, the simple text leads readers through the book, while the inviting pencil, watercolor, and gouache artwork gives them reasons to linger . . . A comforting choice for reading aloud." —Booklist
