Sweet Child of Mine

Caroline Jayne Church. Scholastic/Cartwheel, $8.99 (26p) ISBN 978-0-545-64771-7
Title aside, Church isn’t exactly channeling Guns N’ Roses with this gentle tribute to love, whose lilting rhymes underscore a parent’s love no matter the time of day, season, or weather. A girl with soft curls appears in each scene with her patchwork stuffed dog, whose presence means the verse can also be read as a child’s ode to a treasured plush pal: “I love you when the stars glow in the dim moonlight./ I love you in the silence that comes with every night.” Church’s subdued palette, softly speckled backgrounds, bits of texture, and loose ink lines create a soothing, restful setting. Up to age 3. (Aug.)
