Picturebook with CD Illustrated by Suzanne Duranceau
A tender tribute to dads the world over. While a mother penguin leaves her mate and newly laid egg to go and feed in the deep blue sea, the father penguin protects the egg by holding it on his feet until it hatches. Containing a free CD with a song written and sung by Sarah Weeks, Without You is a soothing narrative ballad that illuminates one of nature’s rare and heartwarming role reversals.
“It’s refreshing to see a “this is how much I love you” book with a father instead of a mother, and also refreshing to see an active mother and a “mothering” father.”—SLJ
