I Will Still Love You: Promoting Secure Attachment Through Greater Understanding of Unconditional Love by Delicia Mclean spreads messages about unconditional love with a well-illustrated story that is suitable for children up to nine years old. A young meerkat, who needs to be fully convinced that his mother loves him, questions her about love. Every question is met with reassurance and a promise that she would love him no matter which choices he makes or the flaws he has - whether it's running away, knocking over his water, not learning fast enough, getting mad, not being liked by the other children, and more. The book contains several profound lessons about such diverse concepts as forgiveness, failure, trying one's best, saying no, and emotions. Unconditional love is a quality that, if everyone embraced it, would bring about a more peaceful and joyous world.
Delicia Mclean's ground-breaking book is all about love, empathy, and having healthy relationships. The entire book is a conversation between two characters, which makes for an easy and immersive read. The ideas and the language used are simple enough for children to understand and remember. The pictures are especially colorful, heartwarming, and cute. There are quite a lot of quotable lines in the book, and one of my many favorites expresses the view that failure "is still key to success" after a question surfaces about failing at baseball. The mother meerkat's answers display the high level of consciousness and love that every family, especially those with children, should aim for. I hope I Will Still Love You is shared in all children's schools and by families around the world.
