Sammy’s family and friends help him discover that he will always be able to remember Papa by continuing to do the things that brought them joy.

The whimsical illustrations help tell the wonderful story of the Squirrelmunk family and the close bond they have with each other and their community.

You're reviewing: I Remember Papa

Karen Dare

First-time author Karen Dare wrote I Remember Papa when she had trouble finding a picture book to read to her young grandchildren after her husband (their Papa) passed away. Karen adores her five grandchildren and is fortunate that they all live nearby. She has lived in Eagan, Minnesota, for over thirty-five years and is very active in the community.

CA Nobens

CA (Cheryl Ann) Nobens was born in northern Minnesota. A winter baby, she grew up loving all of its fun and magic and beauty. After graduating from Hibbing High School, she went on to earn a BA in Illustration and Graphic Design from The Minneapolis College of Art and Design.

She published her first children’s book in 1979, and has been working professionally in the field of children’s literature and educational publishing ever since. She is a mere snowball’s throw away from having contributed to one hundred books, bringing humor and heart to both story and pictures.

CA works as a writer, illustrator, and graphic designer from a studio in her century-old house in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, where she lives with her family and two cats. On the coldest of days, she is outside merrily shoveling the sidewalk, making snow angels in her backyard, walking in Oak Hill Park, or lying in the snow beneath her maple tree to watch the wind blowing branches around overhead. This makes her very happy.
