From New York Times bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrator Frank Endersby comes a classic story about the nature of unconditional love.
Little Red Squirrel tries to guess the reason that his daddy loves him—is it because he is a good High Climber, and Brave, and Fast, and Completely Handsome? Could it be because he’s so Friendly? Or maybe it’s because he’s so good at finding Top Secret Berries?
The answer is a heartwarming testament to a parent’s love for a child.
Perfect for fans of Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney and classics such as The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown.
