Publisher Comments:

Years ago, I visited Kenya and never left. More accurately, I returned to my home in Wisconsin, but Kenya never left me. It happens to everyone. The sky was so wide and blue that it didn't seem to have a top at all. The silence was so deep I could hear my own heart thunder in my ears. Animals were everywhere. They galloped and swung their heads and slithered across the mara, beautiful and deadly. Sometimes I'd see a Maasai, red-robed, sometimes standing on one leg, often with a rod in his hand. It seemed to me he was the guardian of it all. A Maasai father's greatest treasure is his child. It is his pleasure and duty to raise his son to be strong, brave, and competent, because his boy will be the future guardian of Maasailand. The story of Papa, Do You Love Me?, tells the tender duty of fathers everywhere. This follow-up to the best-selling Mama, Do You Love Me? (over one million copies sold in 15 languages!) captures the universal love between a father and child. Set in Africa and featuring the Maasai culture, the beautiful watercolor illustrations, lyrical text, and enduring message are sure to make this another instant classic.

Review:

"Featuring a dramatically different setting from the collaborators'Mama, Do You Love Me?, which centers on an Alaskan Inuit mother and daughter, this warmhearted companion introduces a Maasai boy and his father on the Serengeti. Like the young protagonist of the earlier book, this curious child verbally tests the limits of his parent's love, which is — words and art convincingly reinforce — boundless. Addressing his child as Tender Heart, the father incorporates references to Maasai culture as he answers his son: 'I love you more than the warrior loves to leap, more than the bush baby loves the moon, more than the elder loves his stories.' Local terms (explained in a glossary) come into play as the lad's questions become more specific. What if, as herd boy, one night he overate and fell asleep and hyenas crept in and stole his birthright cow? The father's articulate responses reassure the child that he will always be there to help his son — and to teach him. Echoing the soothing rhythm of the poetic narrative, Lavallee's graceful watercolors feature a harmoniously balanced palette, setting the bold hues and patterns of traditional Maasai clothing against the variegated blues of the sky, the pale tones of the plain and the natural markings of African animals. This vividly depicted setting underscores the universality of the book's message. Ages 4-8. (June)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
