Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 9; read yourself: 6 to 9
Interest Level: 2 to 6
Reading Level: 2.8
Age of Child: Read with 6-year-old child.
Young Reader Reaction: Our child thought that flipping the book was cool. S/he could relate to many of the contrasts and superlatives.
Adult Reader 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.
Pros: This picture book offers a mother and child a shared experience of expressing their love.
Borrow or Buy: 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.
