A young boy wonders if his mother will still love him even when he does things like refusing to go to bed or eat his peas or (my personal favorite) forgetting to feed his hamster. The humorous illustrations done in soft watercolors shows all the ways in which his behavior might affect the mother's answer but in the end she reassures him that no matter what she will always love him. A perfect read to share with your little one at bedtime.
