This sweet picture book celebrates a parent’s love and support of a child through life’s milestones, from learning to walk to the first day of school and all the highs and lows in between.

With lyrical text from Maggie C. Rudd and stunning art by Elisa Chavarri, I’ll Hold Your Hand celebrates the unbreakable bond of family, and all the ways our actions can say “I love you” louder than words.
