This is a great heartwarming story about love between a mother and a child, exploring both sides of the equation. The child's perceptions are spot on.


Synopsis: "Were you ever told, "You know I love you?" Or have you ever felt that you did not tell someone you loved them enough? Reach out and embrace I Love You More, a timeless gift you will share again and again.

Too often love is assumed and not spoken. Love should be seen, heard, felt, sensed, shown, expressed, talked about-and more! Reading I Love You More will become a game, a conversation of love, that people, especially parents and
children, can share for years.

This cleverly conceived fli

Our family has a little tag we always add to our "I love you" exchanges: the first person says, "I love you", and the other person says," But I love you MORE!". I don't know when or how we started the fun tradition, but we still do it today and, as silly as it sounds, it always brings a smile and the "warm fuzzies"....which is exactly what you and your little ones will experience when you read this new book by Laura Duksta, I Love You More.

The words are sweet and lilting (I think some creative...more

It doesn't matter how sentimental the book is, most parents are suckers for the "I love you" books. It seems they are almost a subgenre to themselves filled with a parent (usually a mom)-child patter about how they love each other.

Sometimes the child questions whether the parent would continue to love them no matter how they behaved (such as in the Mama, Do You Love Me book), sometimes the characters engage in a competition about who loves each other the most. No matter how sentimental these bo...more

This is one really neat board book and AppleBlossom loves to flip through the pages. One of the cool thing about this little book is that is opens and starts from both the front cover and the back cover and practically never ends. If you have not been able to catch yourself a copy of this book watch the video to see what's it about. Each page and phrase is one more explanation to quantify your love between a mama and her child. This book is a treasure and I plan on reading it over and over again...more
I Love You More is a very sweet book of a mother and son. It is a flip book with the mother’s reasons for loving her son in one direction and the son’s reasons the other direction. They both relate their love in terms of nature and creation. Each side displays their love in appropriate ways.
I would probably use this one as a take home read with parents’ book. It could also be used to show how writers do things differently as the set-up of the book is very different than traditional books. It...more

My three year-old niece and I both loved it.
A bedtime favorite for my son and I.
too much like the classic "guess how much i love you" or is that just me? sort of sweet due to the illustrations. not sure it has to be a flip book...wish they would've just done it all as one upright book.
super sweet book. I bought it for my son when he was in the hospital, and couldn't read it for sobbing. now that's he's healthy and happy and almost two, he will sit and read it with me.
This is a flip over book.
Read it one way and it's the Momma telling the boy how much she loves him.
Close it, flip it over and it is the boy telling his Momma how much he loves her.
It's ok. Book 'never ends' because you flip it midway trough and the story starts all over again.

This is the board book version, and is much smaller than the original book.

This was a little confusing to read as a bedtime story, we figured it out, but I think this is better as a daytime reading book because of the flipping mid story.
Cute and a good book to read to your child or elementary students; as a classroom teacher (loco parentis), you will illustrate that someone cares and love them!
One of our favorites.
Lovely book from the perspective of a mother and son about how much they love each other. They both give examples that suit their age. Also flips

My five year old and I enjoyed reading this flip-sided book from both directions - from the point of view of both the mother and the child.

Bought this book for my mother-in-law, cause she always have one of these types of saying with my children and it's a fond memory.

This was such a cute book for the little ones. Its about a little boy who asks his mom how much she loves him. Age 3 and 5

Picture book
Very interesting and unusual story about three women that find out they're married to the same man.
This is a cute and interesting book to introduce rhyming words and informal descriptions of measurements.
Got this as a review copy. Pretty cute. A little wordy for Miriam, but the sentiment is good.
i love the way the mom and boy tell how much they love eachother in their own special way.
I love this book .. and love it when Chase picks it out to read!
