A stunning board book that shows little ones they will be loved unconditionally and empowers parents and caregivers to raise well-rounded, resilient individuals.
With a simple message, Dr. Roberts aims to strengthen the parent-child bond and support families in becoming effective problem solvers. Each stanza in this beautifully illustrated board book presents a key parenting element/piece: start early, stay current, build resilience, nurture relationships, reduce stigma and prejudice, learn smart boundaries and offer unconditional love. These elements come from Dr. Roberts's 7-Point Parental Compass, which was developed to help families face the complex issues of our modern world.
