Kid's Korner - I Love You More by Laura Duksta (Book Review)

Title: I Love You More
Author: Laura Duksta
Illustrator: Karen Keesler
Publisher: Sourcebooks Jabberwocky

This is an adorable children's book, that my 4 year old son loves. From one direction, it starts with the question from a little boy to his mother "Mommy, just how much do you love me?" With cute rhymes and corresponding pictures, his mother tells him how much she loves him.

In the middle of the book, rather than ending, you flip it over and the mother then asks her son "So, just how much do you love me?" Again, the boy has some great answers with colorful pictures to help tell the story.

It is fun to read with my son, as then we will go about the day making up funny ways to say "I love you". My son's favorite from the book is "I love you longer than the longest lollipop ever lasted. I love you louder than the loudest rocket ship ever blasted."

I give this high marks for keeping a preschoolers attention - fun rhymes, though not too many words, colorful pictures - and a big hug from mom at the end!
