Product Description

As Little Red Squirrel and his daddy run through the woods he wonders why his dad loves him so much. Is it because he can climb very high, or because he's a super, fast runner, or is it because he is so handsome . . . what he learns is that his father loves him because of all of these things, but that is not the most important reason why. A heartwarming story that is a testament to the love between a parent and child.

Publisher's Description

From New York Times bestselling author Sally Lloyd-Jones and illustrator Frank Endersby comes a classic story about the nature of unconditional love.

Little Red Squirrel tries to guess the reason that his daddy loves him—is it because he is a good High Climber, and Brave, and Fast, and Completely Handsome? Could it be because he’s so Friendly? Or maybe it’s because he’s so good at finding Top Secret Berries?

The answer is a heartwarming testament to a parent’s love for a child.

Perfect for fans of Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney and classics such as The Runaway Bunny by Margaret Wise Brown.

Publisher's Weekly

When Little Red Squirrel’s father shouts, “Did I tell you today that I love you?” his son answers, “Because why?” As father and child spend the day playing, Little Red Squirrel tries out various answers to the question. “Do you love me because I’m fast?” he asks after showing off his “Super Fast Running.” Of course, that’s not the reason why, nor are the others the small squirrel suggests—his father confirms that he’s good at finding berries, brave, daring, and handsome, but it’s not until bedtime that Daddy whispers the real reason he loves his child, an answer that the book’s title makes clear. Reminiscent of Guess How Much I Love You, it’s a conventional and reassuring reminder of a parent’s love for a child. While the language may occasionally be too sweet for some tastes, Lloyd-Jones (How to Get a Job... by Me, the Boss) interjects bits of light humor throughout (mostly in the form of Little Red Squirrel’s boisterous confidence and limitless energy), and the warmth and affection depicted in Endersby’s illustrations should appeal to those looking for models of fathers lovingly tending to children. Ages 3–7. Agent: Curtis Brown. Illustrator’s agent: Beehive Illustration. (Jan.) Copyright 2011 Reed Business Information.
