A stunning board book that shows little ones they will be loved unconditionally and empowers parents and caregivers to raise well-rounded, resilient individuals.

With a simple message, Dr. Roberts aims to strengthen the parent-child bond and support families in becoming effective problem solvers. Each stanza in this beautifully illustrated board book presents a key parenting element/piece: start early, stay current, build resilience, nurture relationships, reduce stigma and prejudice, learn smart boundaries and offer unconditional love. These elements come from Dr. Roberts's 7-Point Parental Compass, which was developed to help families face the complex issues of our modern world.

“Gentle and quietly reassuring, this is recommended for board book collections aimed at new ­parents or caregivers.”
– School Library Journal
“Truly lovely…For the child who needs a model, who needs a book that tells them somewhere parents are like this, then this book is a perfect fit. Highly Recommended.”
