Weaving together the wonders of nature and a parent’s devotion in one glorious day of outdoor exploration, this picture book is a beautiful, unforgettable ode to the bond between caregiver and child.

Busy birdsong, breaking dawn,
melodies above the lawn.
Fly right over here to me.
You'll always be my chickadee.

With lyrical, rhyming text by author Kate Hosford and gorgeous illustrations by artist Sarah Gonzales, this gentle book shows that there are as many ways to say I love you as there are special moments to be shared together. A restful bedtime book, a cherished read-aloud, and a memorable gift for new families, You'll Always Be My Chickadee reassures young children that no matter what, our love for them is as steadfast as the tallest forest tree and as endless as the stars in the sky.

“A golden-hued love song, both for treasured children and for the outdoors.” — Kirkus Reviews

“In a snuggly book that unfolds over the course of a day spent outdoors, Hosford uses expressive, nature-filled rhymes to capture the adoring relationship between a caregiver and child. Undulating hues mark Gonzales’s light-filled gouache, watercolor, and pencil scenes… As day shifts to night, and images move toward the domestic, a sleepy mood underlines the book’s feel of absorbing tenderness across place and time.” — Publishers Weekly,Starred Review
