Greeting the morning through eager, new eyes.

Peacefully gliding beneath moonlit skies.

Joining together to howl with the pack.

Reaching to gather a tasty, new snack.

Rising on shaky legs, learning to stand.

Tumbling and playing on wide-open land.


I'll be beside you wherever you go,

Cheering with wonder and joy as you grow.

About the Author

Aimee Reid is an author with a background in education and editing. She taught high school English, Music, and Special Education before she began writing for children. Aimee's picture books include Mama's Day with Little Gray, You are My Friend: The Story of Mister Rogers and His Neighborhood, Welcome Home, and First Morning Sun. As a child, Aimee was a voracious reader and could often be found—curled in a corner, tucked in the crook of a tree limb, or crouched by a book rack in the grocery store aisle—carried away to the world of a book. Now Aimee sends her own stories out into the world. It brings her great joy to think of other children nestled on a lap or cuddled on a couch reading good books to share.

French Illustrator Sebastien Braun studied fine and applied arts at Strasbourg University. He then taught applied arts before becoming a freelance illustrator, first of all for editorial clients in Paris. When Sebastien moved to London in 2000 he developed his illustrations for children and since then has been working exclusively on children’s picture books. Sebastien’s clients include: Egmont, Nosy Crow, Simon & Schuster, Little Tiger Press, Harper Collins US, Scholastic and many more.
