Though they're apart, this mother never stops thinking about her child. A mother bear tells her child about her workday. She describes one activity after another, following each description with “And I think about you.” As we see her at her tasks, we see the corresponding activity she imagines with her child. Then, turn the page, and we see the child in a parallel activity at school. From reading emails to sharing projects with coworkers, the mother is reminded of her child. And their days remain intertwined, connected by their love. The repeated refrain --- “And I think about you” --- is one no child ever tires of hearing.

A mother bear at work all day never stops thinking about her child in this reassuring story with a heartwarming message.

In this tender picture book, a mother bear tells her child about her workday. She describes one activity after another, and follows each description with “And I think about you.” Illustrations show her at her tasks, with a corresponding activity she imagines with her child in a thought bubble beside her. Then, turn the page, and the child is shown participating in a parallel activity at school. So, the mother bear reads her emails, and thinks about reading to her child, while the child reads on the carpet in the classroom. She shares a project with her coworkers, and thinks about sharing time with her child on the sofa, while the child shares a pinwheel during circle time. The rhythmic pattern will enchant and delight young readers — all the way to the surprising end!
