Publisher's Weekly Review

In Will You Still Love Me? by Jean- Baptiste Baronian, illus. by Noris Kern, a follow-up to I Love You with All My Heart, Polo the polar bear is sad because his mother and father are too busy to play with him. Then Polo notices his mother's tummy growing larger, but she reassures him that she and his father will always love him, despite the arrival of a sibling.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2-Polo, the polar bear cub from I Love You with All My Heart (Chronicle, 1998), is sad because he thinks his parents don't love him anymore. He asks his four friends if they know why. Pinpin the penguin suggests perhaps he has been naughty, while Jesse the wolf says, "Maybe they still do.-Why don't you ask them?" When Polo goes home, he notices his mother's enlarged stomach and asks her about it. She reassures him that even though he is going to be a big brother soon, he will always be her little one. The story unfolds against a beautifully illustrated Arctic setting (except for the penguins) of ocean blues, crystallized whites, and puddles to see reflections in. Large-sized polar bear and wolf cubs appear so fluffy and cuddly children will want to stroke their fur. When the animals speak to one another, one can easily believe that children are talking because the conversational tone is so fluid and laid back. A great book for expectant parents and for teachers who want to allay the feelings of soon-to-be big brothers or sisters.-Wanda Meyers-Hines, Ridgecrest Elementary School, Huntsville, AL (c) Copyright 2010.
