Always by Ann Stott

Book Description

This is a reassuring and humorous book that explores the strong bonds of unconditional love between a parent and their child. Does a parent's love have limits? What about when I'm naughty? When I finger-paint on the bathroom mirror, jump in puddles, don't go to bed...Do you still love me, no matter what I do? The answer comes back plain and true...I will always love you.

Ben is nothing if not prepared. So when he gets caught feeding his dinner to the dog (again) and is sent his room (again), he's up to the challenge of solitary confinement. And he's more than happy to share strategies with readers, from unearthing his cache of hidden snacks to liberating his caged pets. Full color.

Reviews

US Kirkus Review » Stott's simply executed tale explores the expansiveness of a mother's love. A young child queries his mother on the parameters of her affection through a series of seemingly guileless questions. Stott wryly captures the gamut of childhood peccadilloes as, with charming timidity, the child quizzes his mother to establish if her love encompasses whether he eats his peas (or not), uses the potty (or not), etc. Child readers will recognize their own behaviors and anxieties, and will be reassured by the mother's steadfast testimony of unconditional affection. Phelan's watercolors adeptly convey the gleeful mischief that is part and parcel of childhood. His deft sketches are an amusing extension of the tale and well worth second and third glances - as the child wonders whether his mother will love him if he doesn't eat his peas, readers see just his scowling eyes at table-level, little green vegetables strewn all over, including his hair. The artwork and the cozy message combine to create a vastly reassuring if not particularly original tale for little ones. (Picture book. 2-5) (Kirkus Reviews)
