So very tender and loving, a girl and her father talk and stroll through the autumn trees in Bernard Waber's posthumously published book.
Suzy Lee uses colored pencil in simple but brilliant bold stokes to illustrate this delightful picture book.

One of my favorite picture books of the year!

"Ask me what I like." So begins an easygoing give-and-take between a young girl and her father. As the pair takes a walk through their neighbourhood, the father's questions gently encourage the energetic girl's litany of favorites: she likes turtles, geese, the colour red, lightning bugs (NOT fireflies), splashing in the rain, stories about bears… The meandering, affectionate conversation continues all the way home, where it's almost time for bed. Leisurely paced and illustrated in warm, autumnal hues, Ask Me is a "sublimely satisfying" (Kirkus Reviews) choice for one-on-one sharing at bedtime or any other quiet time.

"Ask me again what I like?" A little girl and her father spend a day together talking about important things like ice cream, digging in the sand and stories about bears. A touching story with great illustrations. A good conversation starter.

A delightful story to team-read, perhaps two adults trading off or even a child and parent. -- Everyone loves to be asked what they like!
