Love Me Later

Summary:

Asking your parents about what you did when you were little isn't as easy as it sounds. Every time Abe asks, his Mom and Dad start to get mushy, and he doesn't have time for that … or so he thinks.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

With its stream of conscious writing, the story moves fast and parents and kids alike will see themselves (even if the events are different). The illustrations are great, and using color (vs. he said, she said) to denote conversation is most creative.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Little Kid Reaction

Although our preschooler liked the book, it was never one s/he picked off the shelf independently. With every reading the questions came off the pages and into his/her life.

Parent Reaction

Reading this book is like living an afternoon with a preschooler: wonderful questions that come from everywhere and nowhere. The illustrations are captivating … and fun to look at even when you're not reading because of their subtleties.

Type of Book:
This is a picture book that recreates every parent's experience with a young child.
Educational Themes:

There is lots to do. You can answer the questions for yourselves, craft new ones, search for butterflies, enjoy (or create) collage pictures of your own.
