Synopses & Reviews
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.
The long-awaited companion to the bestselling "Mama, Do You Love Me?" captures the universal love between a father and child. Set in an African Maasai village, this beautiful book tenderly depicts the strong bond between a father and child. Full color.
