This book is a bit of a cheat when it comes to counting towards your reading challenge. I bought it for my mum for mothers’ day for a bit of a laugh, knowing that she would appreciate it (she works in a preschool) and had a read of it myself. It was quite a cute book but it’s hard to review it when you’re not a small child and don’t have much dealings with them.

Teeters on the edge of the Karen Katz Valley of Saccharine and misses by inches. But the rhymes work and there's lots of kid appeal in the pictures, bold enough for toddlers but with funny details for older preschoolers. Love You Forever this isn't, thank heaven!

Cute book. Rhyming lines. Suitable for toddlers. I might be biased as to the subject matter.

I Love My Mommy is an incredibly sweet and cute book. This book is perfect for very young children with short attention spans, because both the text and illustrations are very simple. Being told from the perspective of the baby (or toddler), children will be able to relate to the events in the story or even point out things that they do with their mommy too. The simple text, illustrations, and soft pastel colors even give the story a very pleasant, warm feeling.

With that being said, I feel the

Toddler Story Time. Big, bold illustrations and babies and toddlers will love. Moms will melt as they hear all of the reasons that their little ones love them so.

Fun rhyming book. My preschool kids enjoyed it, and my 2-year-old asked me to read it several times.

I really enjoyed reading this book. This book is written from the point of view of a small child who talks about all the many reasons why he loves his mommy. This book is very engaging with the large print and colorful illustrations. Also, the text uses repetition and rhyming which is great for the younger audience.

As a teacher, this book would be great to use for primary grades (specifically pre-k and kindergarten) during the first weeks of school when they have trouble adjusting from home to s

There is just something about this book I really didn't like. There is absolutely no talk of dad at all and the kid is sleeping in bed with his mom. Also the ending is kinda like he is trying to get you to love his mommy she is a single mom. (not saying that is a bad thing, just not relevent and a little weird a toddler is trying to get me to love his mom) Maybe I'm just reading into this WAY to much. Other things I wasn't thrilled about was that the kid was drinking a milk shake a ...more

"I Love My Mommy" Follows the narrative of a baby boy, he lists all the things he loves about the relationship with his Mum. Throughout the whole book there is a simple rhyming scheme. This Can be used for Early Years. This book can be used for a Mothers day activity, getting children to think about what nice things do our mothers do for us? or getting children thinking about what nice things can we do for our friends and family ? in PSHCE.

My daughter picked this book up at the library and very much enjoyed it. I read it through once to her and then she read it to me - from memory. She enjoyed it and it has good illustrations and some sweet rhymes. However I have to agree with some of the other reviewers that it doesn't ever mention any dad figure and the baby is sleeping in the mother's bed. These bits I didn't like but then it's also a picture book and the stories are never comprehensive!!

This is a very sweet "mommy" book with short rhyming text and very colorful illustrations. There are many of these types of books out there but the illustrations make this one stand out as one I really like. They are large, clear, colorful and cute (in a good way). The rhymes are nice and there is a little bit of humor too. This is a good choice for toddlers and young preschoolers. -AM

This book was cute enough. The colors weren't as exciting as some other books and the story was kind of short. I know it's for kids, but since my child can't even comprehend language yet, it was just a little too simple for me. It'll be cute when she's starting to understand language better and trying to read herself though.

This book won the UK's Booktrust Early Years Award 2010 for Best Book for babies under one year old. The lovely rhyming text describes the ways in which a baby loves their mummy. The illustrations show mother and baby having fun filled times together. A nice book for baby rhyme times, especially around Valentine's Day.

Written from the perspective of a small child, this is an engaging read. There's a gentle rhyme that engages your little ones and fun pictures as well. Not much can grab the attention of my 18 month old, but this one stops her and keeps her on my lap. Love it!

With this book, I struggled with the POV. It’s a first person toddler narrator, and the sentence structure and word choice don’t fit the voice. What toddle refers to his “grubby nose” or can form the sentence “She even helps me learn to pee!” This book made me long for David Shannon’s No, David!

I just read this book to a group of young children, and I absolutely loved it. I read it for Valentine's Day and I probably will read it again. It isn't necessarily a V-Day book, but it worked really well and held the kids' attention.

My son picked this book out from the library by himself, so, of course, I wanted to love it. But I didn't quite love it. It is cute, and the illustrations are darling, but it is a bit too sweet for my taste.

This book is cutesie, but the writing is bad quality. (Example: She really is so kind to me, She even helps me learn to pee.)

Perfect for older toddlers/younger preschoolers, this book has simple rhyming sentences on each page coupled with large-sized and boldly colored illustrations. A celebration of a child's love of mommy, this title makes a wonderful lap read but will also serve well as a readaloud for an audience.

I was disappointed by this book. The daddy version fit out family really well, but this one did not fit as well at all. Still cute though, and with great illustrations.

A toddler tells why he loves his mommy so: "She helps me wipe my grubby nose, and tickles me between the toes!"
