None.


Little Kid Reaction

Our child thought that flipping the book was cool. S/he could relate to many of the contrasts and superlatives.

Parent Reaction

This is a sweet poem. It falls in the same category as Guess How Much I Love You? We like how it distinguishes itself by letting the child draw on some of his favorite things to describe his love. It's nice that child can "go first" reading, just by flipping the book.

Type of Book:
This is a flip-sided picture book about expressing love.
Educational Themes:

This is a book about expressing your love. The format readily invites your child t create his own superlatives about how much he loves someone (or something).

Reading Level:
2.8
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 and Up
Recommended Age To Read Together:
2 to 8
Age of child:
Read with 6-year-old child.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. This is a sweet poem, but it is still like many other "I Love You" books. This would make a nice gift book for a mom-to-be or new mom.
