A trip to the zoo inspires a parent to list all the ways they love their child, no matter how wild they are, in this rhyming picture book.

What if you had cheetah spots? Or flew like an eagle? Follow a parent and child from a fun-filled trip to the zoo through a mess filled day and all the way to bedtime. No matter how wild a child is, a parent’s love never wavers.

If you sang like a screech owl in the night, I would be there to hug you tight.
If you crawled like a gecko up the wall, I would still love you best of all.
If you dangled upside down like a possum in a tree, that wouldn’t matter at all to me!
I would love you still.

Cuddle up at bedtime to share these charming animal rhymes and giggle at the adorable illustrations. This celebration of the special bond between parent and child is the perfect gift for baby showers, new parents, or any occasion!
Adrea Theodore is a mother, a pediatrician and author of A History of Me from Neal Porter Books. Growing up on Long Island, she was the kind of girl who almost always had a book in her hand, a library card in her pocket, and a stack of books in the corner waiting to be read — or returned for more books. She currently lives in Durham, North Carolina where she works with children at a local child advocacy center.

Ken Wilson-Max is the illustrator of over 70 books for children worldwide in more than 10 languages, including The Little Plant Doctor from Holiday House, Little Red Plane, and Astro Girl, which is a STEAM AWARD for Early Years Picture Books Winner and a Bank Street College Best Book of the Year.

"This is a wonderful tale of family love, perfect for story time gatherings and to recommend to those needing soothing bedtime rituals."—School Library Journal

"The use of repetition and rhyme makes for a soothing read-aloud. Wilson-Max’s digital illustrations have a watercolorlike feeling, evoking the intimacy of a painting. . . A tender, quiet affirmation of Black joy."—Kirkus Reviews
