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!!”

Parent’s comments:
“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.
