Summary: A child asks an adult (as only a child can) about how much and how long and how often they loves him. This is a book that puts into words the thoughts kids have about love.
Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, anytime reading, read aloud book
Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 8; read yourself: 7 to 9
Interest Level: 2 to 6
Reading Level: 3
Age of Child: Started reading with child 3-and-one-half years old.
Adult Reader 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.
Pros: 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.
Cons: None, really. Not sure the target audience would understand what "temper of the day" means, though.
Borrow or Buy: 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.
