Because you are with me by Kylie Dunstan

Hachette, 2010. ISBN 9780734411310.
Highly recommended for 4+. Sometimes it takes a bit of help from someone you love to find the courage to do scary and new things. Together a father and daughter discover all the things they can achieve, from walking down the hallway in the dark to eating all your vegetables.
The illustrations are unusual and beautiful. Using a striking collage technique with lokta paper, Kylie Dunstan has created a colourful father and daughter story that will appeal to young readers who are experiencing firsts in their own lives.
