Staff Reviews

For a picture book that just came out this year, this one already feels like a classic. The story is about community and paying it forward, and the art is absolutely gorgeous. This is a picture book you’ll read over and over again (and I may have already gifted it to several babies in my life).


— From I'll Take Care of You


Warm, vibrant illustrations combine with the steady reassurance "I'll take care of you" to introduce children to the cycles of nature and the gift of nurturing.

A tiny seed finds itself lost in the world, but with care from the Sky, Earth, and Sun it grows up to be a beautiful apple tree. When the tree meets a bird in need of help, it offers its branches as shelter and shows little readers the magic of being cared for and taking care.

This comforting tale celebrates the harmonious relationship between birds and trees, reveals the quiet wonder of our ecosystems, and helps little readers appreciate the care they receive from their family and friends every day. In return, children will learn that they can care for others too and cultivate empathy and kindness.

With warm, colorful illustrations and a timely message of care and community, I'll Take Care of You offers a soothing story before bedtime, or anytime on tough days.
