A penguin mom or dad shows their baby love by promising to care for and treasure their little one—and above all, to never let them go. Well, except for when it’s very important to let go, like when little one wants to eat, draw a picture, use the bathroom, calm down in quiet, or play with friends. Safely assured by a parent’s steadfast love, the little penguin is free to explore its world, secure in the knowledge that affection and safety are always close by. But at the end of the day, it’s baby penguin who comes back for one last hug with a promise never to let go.
Sweet, playful, and brought to life with energetic and colorful illustrations, Never Let You Go is a warm hug of a book that reassures young readers through their first steps on the path to growing up. Destined to be a beloved read-aloud for parents and children alike, this is the perfect book for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or a baby shower. At any time of year, Never Let You Go’s simple but powerful message of enduring love and support is one little readers and parents will take to heart.
