A beloved classic continues to reassure children.

I Promise I'll Find You is a moving story that parents will love reading to and sharing with their children again and again.

The fear of being separated from loved ones is a universal emotion. Consider a child who feels lost -- wandering away from home, becoming separated in a crowd, or feeling frightened in a new and strange place?

I Promise I'll Find You is a perennial favorite of parents and children alike; it's like a comforting hug, a warm lap, a reassuring kiss, and the enveloping arms of a parent who pledges, no matter what happens: "I promise I'll find you."

In eleven warm and simple verses, Heather Patricia Ward delivers a timeless message of reassurance. Sheila McGraw's imaginative illustrations show a devoted mother and an amusing dog as they search the world over for a lost child: at sea, in the city, over mountains, and even in outer space.

Together, parents and children will enjoy the gentle language and the calm, reassuring pictures of this thoughtful and important book.

The imagery is vivid--a mother or father rows a rowboat, rides a horse, drives a race car, or shoots through space in a rocket-ship until the child is found, brought back home, and enveloped in love and safety. 12 ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sweetest book ever. Not only is "I promise I'll find you" a sweet dedication to the lost children of the world, it also shows the remarkable lengths a mother would go to to have her child return safely to her arms. I find a parallelism in the idea that this poem/book could also be used as a metaphor for a relationship with a loved one (perhaphs a significant other?) with the lines "Remember this my darling, for it is very true. If ever we're apart, I'll search till I find you". It is a remarkable childrens story with cute illustrations. Read it with your child or again to a significant other prior to a length of time you will remain apart. Mostly, enjoy the simple message of devote and undeniable love.
