In this tender, funny book, an adorable penguin learns that Mom or Dad “will never let you go” . . . except when it is time to let you go. Safely assured by the steadfast love of a parent, the little penguin can begin to explore its world bit by bit — draw a picture, chase the stars, even throw a tantrum — secure in the knowledge that a doting parent is always waiting in the wings.

Gently affirming, this book is the perfect addition to a nursery and toddler bookshelf, as it gives voice to all of the sweet sentiments parents wish to share, as their babies take their first big steps on the path of growing up.
