No matter how many times and in how many different ways the child asks the father responds with concrete illustrations of his love. For example the child asks How long will you love me?” The father responds “I’ll love you as long as the wildebeest run on the mara the hippopotamus wallows in mud and the Serenget rolls to the sky.” This is a wonderful book for parents to read aloud to their children assuring them of their protection and security.
