Little Seahorse and the Big Question
Join Papa and Little One on a very ordinary day, as they explore Little One's big question: "What do we need?"
Together, they decide they need lots of things - clean water, friends, a home - but, above all, they need each other.
This is a lyrical, heart-warming picture book for all families, no matter how they are created and no matter who is in them.
