Harriet is at that age where she wants to know why we are her parents. She's come to realize that there was a time when she and her brother didn't exist. In her version of the way things came to be: first we got married, then we decided to practice being parents by adopting Caligula cat, then we had Sean and then we were finally ready for Harriet.

With that in mind she is becoming interested in books about families. One of her recent reads to fulfill her interest in all things family was What Do...more

Adorable. I especially liked that the activities the mom and child shared were inexpensive and healthy. I would totally love to hear children come up with their own lists. I would hesitate to use this in a pre-school, though, in case there were children who had such difficult home lives they felt left out by this.
The story is adorable and I love that whenever I read it to my kids (there are parts when it asks, "What do you love?") they giggle and shout out the many things that they love...too cute :)
This book is so sweet. I enjoy the large illustrations. I get giggles and smiles as I read it . When I get to the parts that ask "What do you love?" I really enjoy when my child shouts out things he loves as I read it to him. One of my favorites parts is "mud pies and Mommy's eyes." My sweet boy will reach up and touch my eyes .

Recommends it for: beginning readers and parents reading with them
Very sweet tale, with a sparse, rhyming text and colorful illustrations that show a Mommy dog and her pup spending the day together. It's an easy book for beginning readers and a fun book to read aloud together.

This book uses rhyming to talk about what they love. Great to have students discuss or write about what they love after.
This is my new favorite picture book. I love the rhyming text, the illustrations and the tenderness between mother and child.
Such a beautiful story of mamas and babies and how much there is to love in this world. One of my all-time faves.
One of my favorite books to read to my children. Unlike some others, I never ever tire of this one!
VERY cute board book, my 1 year old looked at it again and again!
