Big Love

By Megan Jacobson
Illustrated by Beck Feiner

How can you describe how big a parent’s love is for their child? Is it as big as a house, as big as a city, as big as the world? This uplifting picture book helps young readers in finding an answer.

This is the house. It’s very big! But it’s not as big as my love for you. No matter how different our families may be, the one thing we all have in common is love. The evocative text and vibrant artwork explore the boundless love of a parent, comparing the scope of the familiar and the great unknown to the love they have for their child.

  • This is the launch title for Walker Australia Studio, a new imprint that showcases books with elegant, engaging design and superior production values.
  • Beck Feiner’s colourful and modern illustrations perfectly complement Megan Jacobson’s lyrical refrain.
  • A soothing and comforting bedtime story to send your child to sleep with a full heart.
