I Love You More
Tony at Source Books sent me a great children's book recently and I wanted to share details about the book with you. It'd make a great Christmas gift! :)

I Love You More by Laura Duksta, illustrated by Karen Kessler, was originally self published in 2001 and it sold over 180,000 copies before it even hit a bookstore! I can understand why. It's a lovely book.

I Love You More is a cleverly conceived flip story, which ends in the middle and starts from either side. It shows you what love looks like from both a parent's and a child's perspective. It's message of love is elegant and moving!

From the parent's section:

I love you higher than the highest bird ever flew.
I love you taller than the tallest tree ever grew.
I love you longer than the longest path ever wound.
I love you prettier than the prettiest flower ever found.

From the child's section:

I love you quieter than the quietest caterpillar ever creeped.
I love you further than the furthest frog ever leaped.
I love you bigger than the biggest bubble ever blown.
I love you freer than the freest kite ever flown.

When I received the book in the mail, I sat down and read it to Snuggle Bug. He loved the bright and imaginative illustrations and he loved that he could flip the book over and read a second story! If you'd like to see some of the book's illustrations, head over to Amazon for an inside look.

I would highly recommend this book for your family, or to be given as a gift to a loved one!

Thanks, Tony, for sending me I Love You More. I thoroughly enjoyed it!
