From Laura Obuobi, author of Black Gold and NAACP Image Award nominee, and illustrator Anna Cunha comes a whimsical bedtime story about the love between a Black father and his daughter. This tender tale with lush natural imagery and pure Black joy captures love's vastness, showing us its greatest form is often the one between parent and child.

One question must be answered before Afia can slip into a peaceful sleep: What does love look like? With the companionship of her loving papa, Afia journeys to find love and learns that it is the warmth of the sun's hugs, the brook's soothing song, and other mesmerizing gifts of nature. But Afia's quest also teaches her that she may not have to go too far to see the emotion at the heart of the world's wonders.
