“The I Love You Book” shows what it means to love someone unconditionally.  For instance, “I love you when you share.  I love you when you are shy.  I love you when you hide my keys.”

Cayden:  “I like the cover on this book.  The silver cut-out heart is pretty cool!  The pictures have lots of colors.  I liked that the mommy and daddy said ‘I love you’ to the kids no matter what they did, even when the baby had a stinky diaper!”

Max:  “I get up in the middle of night and go by mommy too.  I liked the picture of when they went to the grocery store and there were bananas.”

Parent’s comments:
We really enjoyed the bright, bold illustrations in “The I Love You Book.”  The cover is also very eye-catching with the shiny silver heart.  I liked the message about unconditional love that the book conveys.  My children could relate to almost all of the scenarios shown.  “The I Love You Book” by Todd Parr would make a sweet gift for any young child.
