I Love You All Day Long (Paperback)
“A good book to have on hand to comfort first-day preschoolers or kindergarteners.” —Booklist
Do I have to go? Owen asks. Yes, says his mom. But she sends him off with more than just his lunch. She promises that no matter where he is and no matter what he's doing—whether Owen is making a new friend or spilling his juice—she'll love him all day long, from the moment they part until the moment Owen is back in her arms again.
Francesca Rusackas and Priscilla Burris's book is a reassuring picture book to share with nervous little ones. It shows how the enduring love of a parent stays with a child whether they are together or apart.

This adventure and friendship story will pull you along happily on the journey of Annie and her posse of friends called the Scouts. Are friendships forever or can they be finite, based on outgrowing shared experiences? Debut author carefully navigates this question as 7th grade looms large on the horizon. Before that happens, Annie and her buddies get lost in caves, almost drown, get down and dirty with mounds of mud and worms, and a strange, meteor shower-sprinkling of silver dust leads to a wham-bang climax worthy of the James Patterson name! Hand this to any lover of action/adventure and watch the pages fly by. - Maureen
