I Love You So

Summary:

A child asks an adult (as only a child can) about how much and how long and how often they loves him.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

The illustrations are a nice change from the usual picture book fare. Although not billed as an adoption book, it's a great book for adoptive families, or even a favorite aunt/uncle to share, too.

Content Awareness Factors:

None, really. Not sure the target audience would understand what "temper of the day" means, though.


Little Kid Reaction
Big Kid Reaction

It's nice to read a book that talks about love that isn't just explaining things to a child. It puts into words THEIR questions, the way they would ask them.

Type of Book:
This is a book that puts into words the thoughts kids have about love.
Educational Themes:
The theme is clear: I love you in every possible way from every conceivable angle. Its presentation is such that you could add your own superlatives.
Reading Level:
3.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
7 to 9
Recommended Age To Read Together:
2 to 8
Age of child:
Started reading with child 3-and-one-half years old.
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy! There are other "I Love You" books out there, but the fact that the story is driven by a child's questions make it a nice change.
