"Tell me again how you miss
me when we're apart...
I miss you more than you can
know, and I think of you every
minute of every hour."
So begins the melodic and reassuring text of Sheryl Daane Chesnut's lullaby picture book, "I'll Be There." From counting ten bare baby toes in the morning to snuggling up for a bedtime read, this inviting and gentle story is perfect for parents and children to share again and again.
Celebrating all the little things that parents treasure about their children, combined with serene and playful watercolors, "I'll Be There" is a heart-warming look at the wonderful moments in a child's day and the parents who love each and every one of them.
Sheryl Daane Chesnut graduated from the University of California at Santa Barbara in Fine Art. After many years of graphic design, she decided to take the plunge into children's book writing and illustration. The illustrations in "I'll Be There" are a unique combination of watercolor painting and Polaroid transfers. She lives in San Luis Obispo, California, with her husband, three young book critics, two cars, and a wayward, garden-eating rabbit. This is her first children's book.
