When you are afraid
I will take your hand
and not let go--
In this delightful and lyrical text by renowned children's author Eileen Spinelli, a young girl finds reassurance from all of her family members and learns that love complements every mood. Coupled with dazzling art by illustrator Geraldo Valério, her words become a beautiful reminder of the care and comforts of unconditional love.
Geraldo Valerio is new to Simon & Schuster, but not to children's publishing. Born in Brazil, Geraldo was educated both in his native country and at New York University, where he earned an M.A. in Fine Arts. He began his career in children's publishing in 1995 with the picture book "A Cobra Zola, " published by Le Publishing House. He went on to publish other children's titles for Brazilian publishers. This is his first children's book in the United States. Geraldo lives in Portland, Oregon.
