DO YOU STILL LOVE ME?

Age Range: 3 - 5

KIRKUS REVIEW

A sad young rabbit gets a little help from a friend when her parents’ arguing gives her the blues. Oscar, a bouncy black bird wearing a bright red kerchief, can’t wait to leave the nest on such a beautiful day. But just below his tree, he finds his rabbit friend Carrot wiping away tears. Carrot’s parents have just had a big fight, and this surely means that they don’t love each other—or her. Oscar patiently explains that his parents often fight as well, but “that’s just how grown-ups are.” Later, while the two are playing, a squabble helps them realize that it’s how kids are, too. And more, they still love each other. Back home, Carrot’s parents smother her with affection and fill her tummy with dandelion soup. It’s a good day, after all. The important message in Burg’s story is delivered with a directness appropriate for her very young target audience; the bright illustrations have a blurry finish that adds warmth to this purposive tale. (Picture book. 3-5)
