About the Author

Sebastien Braun studied fine arts in Strasbourg, France. His first two books, I Love My Mummy and I Love My Daddy (Boxer Books, 2005) were hugely successful, both in the UK and internationally. Since then, Sebastien has gone on to create many more books for children. Sebastien lives in Gloucestershire with his wife and two sons.


PreS-K-A young bear describes his interactions with his dad as they return home from an outing. They stroll through open fields, count the vibrant leaves falling from the trees, and eat berries along the way. As sunlight streams through the dusky woods, the cub declares, "We had to walk through the dark forest. With Daddy near me, I wasn't scared." As the sun sets and the stars begin to shine, the bear nuzzles his cub's sleeping head. Each measured word builds the gentle narrative; the sweet conclusion perfectly complements the quiet tale. Spare language reflects the loving relationship. Large acrylic spreads feature deep greens and dark oranges; forest animals dot the dynamic pictures, and vibrant backgrounds support the brief text. The consistent child-centered voice provides a lovely depiction of the journey home and those priceless moments shared by a father and his child.-Meg Smith, Cumberland County Public Library, Fayetteville, NC Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.

With unadorned, heartfelt prose and idyllic images, Braun (I Love My Mommy) conveys just how wonderful it feels to spend a day alone with Daddy. The narrator is a bear cub, and both the cadence and reportorial tone of his words easily could have been transcribed from a preschool show-and-tell. "On our way home, Daddy raced me. And I won!" Braun's acrylic pictures strike a lovely balance, as he places his genial, naOf-styled characters within majestically scaled landscapes (in one spread, father and son are dwarfed by a broad, cloudy sky, as the sun peeks from behind distant pine trees). Daddy, by turns strong, goofy (he lets the cub perch on his stomach and feed him berries), reassuring and firm (there's no waffling when it's time to go home), makes the whole world seem endlessly expansive and utterly cozy at the same time. Ages 2-5. (June) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
