What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Perfect for Valentine's Day, graduation, birthdays, or anytime a hug is required, this beautiful book lets children know their parents will always be there for them!

What are the three little words that make everything better? I Love You! Preschoolers will love snuggling with their families and counting all the ways that the three little words “I love you” can solve most every childhood concern. With warm, cuddly, reassuring illustrations of adorable animal families, this book lets children know that their parents will always be there with lots of hugs and kisses.

"Each time the phrase I love you is introduced, Pearce describes it with a different adjective, such as mighty, friendly, or winning, which emphasizes the myriad ways unconditional love can rescue upsetting moments.... The bouncy rhythm makes it fun to read aloud, especially since little ones will easily catch on to the repeated refrain. Great for any time a kiddo needs a boost of confidence."—Booklist

I love this book!! The illustrations are absolutely beautiful and darling, and the story and text are just as sweet! I love the message of this book, and I love that it shows how love and kindness can help overcome other emotions or help you be brave in certain situations. I also love that it talks about how you can help others by using these words, too! Fabulous book.

There are a lot of "I love you" books out there; this is one of the better ones I've encountered. Its illustrations are sweet and detailed, pairing nicely with the simple text. The rhyming text is a big plus in my house, making it extra fun to read aloud. In addition, it goes beyond just expressing love--it sets up a conversation about why feeling loved matters and how we can help the people we love feel safe and happy.
