In “I Already Know I Love You,” author Billy Crystal shares the excitement that comes with the anticipation of the arrival of a new baby from a grandfather’s perspective. From wanting to “play horsey” to sharing “spaghetti, wontons, and ice-cream pie,” there are so many fun moments ahead!
Max: (after I read the title) “I love you too mom!”
Cayden: “Max you are funny! She was reading the name of the book!”
Cayden: “The baby is in that lady’s belly still. Is that the grandpa?”
Max: “Play baseball!”
Cayden: “And fish too! I fish with grandpa and dad!”
Max: “Play peekaboo! See you!”
Cayden: “Laugh like a goon?!? Goons are in the Bunny Foo Foo book.”
Max: “Funny goon!”
Cayden: “Look, they are flying a kite!”
Cayden: “There is the baby!!”
“I Already Know I Love You” by Billy Crystal is a sweet book celebrating one of the most special times in life, the arrival of a new baby. The book is told from the grandfather’s point of view so besides being a great book for children, it is also a great book to give to grandfathers-to-be! My children loved looking at all of the things that the grandpa wanted to do with his new grandchild and found that a lot of the activities they already do with their grandpas.
