Asked and Answered: How Do You Love Me?

Summary:

Children representing 12 countries share an activity that makes them happy. One by one they ask an adult (some parents, some grandparents) if they can do something together. After the children have asked their question, the adults answer them. 


Parent Perspective:
A lovely book with exceptional rhyme and great illustrations. It's hard to say what I like more: the children from around the world or the illustrations with father and child. Be prepared for your child to ask for a hug, a kiss goodnight, and to hear the words "I love you."


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Exceptional rhyme posing questions from children to parents set the stage for a book about the many ways to show you love your child - and help them see how they bring you happiness, too.

Content Awareness Factors:

None.


Type of Book:
This rhyming picture book uses a question-and-answer format to share the ways we show love.
Educational Themes:

Most children will focus on the words and the ways of showing love. After you've read a couple of times, explore the backgrounds. There is a map (albeit simple) that you can use to point to the different places in the world where the children live and the kinds of things they like to do, i.e., that families are similar around the globe.
