I Love you for Miles and Miles will want you to keep reading and see where your love takes you. A fun take on linking the age old question from kids of "Do you love me?" with answers such as longer than the longest train, faster than the fastest fire truck and higher than the highest train. Perfect for little boys (and adventurous little girls) who are always on the go, yet want to know they are always loved. One that will be re-read at many bedtimes. Illustrations of a bear family always on the ...more
I felt like I traveled the miles and miles of love in this book in the best way. Each spread highlights a different vehicle that people see all over the world and ties the use of that vehicle to love. From semi-trucks to airplanes, from tugboats to excavators, each page will make you say "Awwwwwww" and picture your very own train of love stretching for miles and miles.
This will be a well-worn title for parents of young children, especially those who love vehicles and machines. The lush vistas and rhythmic text transport you to all different worlds - perfect before heading off to dreamland. I particularly liked the slow reveal about our adult character in the story. Subtle, but sweet. And my daughter picked up on it before I did!
A perfect bedtime read for kids who love things that go, I Love You for Miles and Miles compares a parent & child bond to many familiar vehicles. Love soars with airplanes, stretches on for miles like a locomotive, and moves obstacles like an excavator in this brightly illustrated book. Bound to become a treasured favorite. ...more

As Shakespeare once reminded us about romance, love is impossible to measure. Still, the parent narrating this story is determined to give several examples of just how large his/her love is for a child. The examples include a long train, a big rig truck, and a speedy fire truck, among others. Clearly, theirs is a steady love, and readers will feel reassured that no matter what happens, the love of a parent is unconditional. The fact that most of these examples feature machines and construction h ...more
A gentle read aloud with adorable illustrations. As it goes on, the story slows down and gets calmer both in prose and visuals which makes for a perfect bedtime book. A personal preference: I like that the character's genders aren't identified. They're just bears, which is welcome especially in a vehicle book.
An adorable book—each page is filled with colorful details and interesting transportation action. An energetic mama bear takes her little cub on one adventure after another to prove her devotion. The stanzas, each beginning with: My love for you is… are lyrical and well thought out. Preschoolers are going to love this story at bedtime or anytime!

This board book version of a larger text follows a parent and child as the parent provides reassurance of just how much that little one is loved. The love is expressed in rhyming text as the two travel to various scenes.
