Because You Are With Me

by Kylie Dunstan

Hachette Children’s Books. Australian, Picture Book. Hardback rrp $28.99

The little girl can do anything as long as her father is with her. Isn’t that what fathers are for? To help to learn to ride a bike, to climb that wobbly rope ladder, and to swim in the deep end.

Dunstan’s bold colourful paper collages cleverly give an almost physical dimension to the story.

Because You Are With Me celebrates the special bond between one little girl and her father. It would make the most wonderful gift for any father, or grandfather, on father’s day.

Kylie Dunstan’s picture book Collecting Colour won the 2009 CBCA Award for Picture Book of the Year.
