Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Two paper-over-board titles with rounded corners use frog families to demonstrate familial love: I Love Mommy and I Love Daddy by Lizi Boyd. Each traces a day's activities with Mommy or Daddy, using basic concepts to show a child's love ("Mommy helps me learn new things. I'm never scared with Mommy"). The artwork, rendered in simple bright shapes, reflects the simplicity of the text. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
This picture book recounts what a child and mother do together from morning to night. They invite the child's friend over to their house, and the mother joins them as they play. Children will recognize the activities as the same ones they do each day. Boyd's frog characters are appealing. The turtle pet is a fun touch and steals the show as it participates in several of the activities. The pages of this "Super Sturdy Picture Book" are a heavier stock than usual and are intended to withstand a toddler turning them. There is no storyline here; just a listing of activities. Because of that, there is no tension and no pizzazz. 2004, Candlewick, Ages 1 to 3.
—Sharon Salluzzo
School Library Journal
PreS-In the first title, a young frog and his father share a special day together swimming and boating, making music, and flying a kite. In Mommy, a frog and her mother build forts, go to the park, read, and snuggle together. In both books, the attractive gouache artwork is done in a flat, graphic style. The soft colors work nicely with the sweet and comfortable tone of the stories. Appealing selections that are best shared and enjoyed one-on-one.-Kelley Rae Unger, Peabody Institute, MA Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Lizi Boyd has written and illustrated many books for children, including BLACK DOG GETS DRESSED. She says, "It took a little time to find a simple voice for I LOVE MOMMY and I LOVE DADDY. It was the frogs, finally, who hopped around and reminded me about our most profound role as parent. I LOVE MOMMY and I LOVE DADDY are simple little books about love, thought, nurturing, and care between a parent and child."
