"A smaller percentage of 17 year olds saw adults reading in their homes in 1999 than in 1984."
Summary: This board book shows baby all the reasons why mommy loves her so much! From her sassy style to the way she offers food to her mommy, it´┐½s certain that she´┐½s too cute for words! This rhyming book, which celebrates how a mom loves her little girl, comes with an autograph page for the people who read it to her.
Type of Reading: bedtime story, anytime reading, family reading, playtime reading, read aloud book
Recommended Age: read together: 0 to 2; read yourself: 5 to 7
Interest Level: 0 to 3
Age of Child: Read with 9-month and 3 year old children.
Young Reader Reaction: My 9-month-old is still too active to sit still for books. My 3-year-old LOVED this book!
Adult Reader Reaction: I did not like the book. The rhymes are forced and the illustrations are too cutsie (lots of ribbons and flowers and tutus). I could not understand why my 3 year old liked the book so much. Perhaps he liked hearing the words ´┐½I LOVE YOU´┐½´┐½ over and over and over again. Second Mom Reviewer: I liked this book and wish I had it for my little girl. I especially liked the journal page in the back that lets people sign that they read the book with baby.
Pros: Kids love to hear "I love you," and it is repeated frequently. There aren't too many words on any page.
Cons: The rhymes are forced.
Borrow or Buy: Buy or skip. If you have boys, skip it. With a girl, you might like it. If you go for this book, buy it, since any board book has a chance of being EATEN by a young baby.
Educational Themes: This is a book for sharing and cuddling. Reading to young babies is always a good thing.
