Little ones adore being independent and trying new things. But they also need Mom and Dad’s reassurance and snuggles. With her spare, lyrical text, Meg Fleming captures the exuberance, the affection, and the tender push-and-pull of life with a child. And illustrator Sarah Jane Wright’s evocative illustrations infuse the story with generous helpings of warmth and love.
Meg Fleming comes from a long line of sailors. She learned to sail from her dad . . . who learned to sail from <i>his</i> dad. Her first job aboard a boat was holding the end of the line. She was 3. (And she was <i>good</i> at it!) Meg’s favorite thing about sailing are the stories, which is probably why she spends so much time writing them now! She is the author of <i>Ready, Set, Build!, </i> <i>I Heart You</i>, and <i>Sometimes Rain</i>. She writes from her home outside of San Francisco with her husband, three kids, and dog on deck.
