LOVE ME LATER

Author: Julie Baer

Illustrator: Julie Baer

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Bollix Books,

Material: hard cover

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. This is a picture book that recreates every parent's experience with a young child.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, family reading, read aloud book

Recommended Age: read together: 4 to 8; read yourself: 6 to 9

Interest Level: 5 to 8

Age of Child: Read with 4-year-old child.

Young Reader 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.

Adult Reader 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.

Pros: 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.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy! The book is fun to have on lots of levels.
