Never Let You Go

  • ISBN 9781443119894, Paperback
  • 32 Pages | Ages 0 to 4
Love is holding on tight - and knowing when to let go.

In this warm, funny book, an adorable penguin learns that Mom or Dad "will never let you go." Safely assured by the steadfast love of a parent, the little penguin can begin to explore its world bit by bit - draw a picture, chase the stars, even throw a tantrum - secure in the knowledge that a doting parent is always waiting in the wings.

Tender but never cloying, Never Let You Go gives a great, warm hug, followed by an encouraging pat as it sets up young readers to take their first big steps on the path to growing up. This story is destined to be a favourite read-aloud for parents and children alike, as the simple but powerful message of enduring love and support is one little readers will take to heart.
