Synopsis: This is a very heartwarming and enchanting book about how we must be careful in our lives. Our parents are always telling us that there is so much out there that we should be careful of. As the reader is reading the book, (s)he will be moved by the truth of what the author is saying. Children have to be careful when they are playing in the backyard, riding their bikes for the first time, holding a baby sibling and going off to school for the first time. Overall thoughts: I absolutely love this book. The illustrations are as beautiful as the message and they capture some of the poignant memories during a child's life. The book portrays the love and care of parents from babyhood through adulthood. There are different layers and complexities of love during the various stages of a child's life. But there is still a very concerned, unconditional love by a parent towards a child at all stages. What a wonderful message for readers, young and older. There is also a page at the beginning of the book to personalize it as a gift for children as well as adults. I just can't say enough nice things about this book! What a treasure it truly is!

How many times, whether as a child or an adult, have people told you to be careful because they love you? In this adorable book with soft, lovely illustrations by Cady B. Driver, authors Judy Snider and Joan Dickrow present several situations where someone tells another person, "I love you, be careful." A husband says it to his wife as she prepares to go into the hospital to have their baby. The mother says it to the child when getting ready to put her in the crib. The father says it to the child when they are petting a horse. And it goes on through the cycle of the child's growing up, having a sibling, going to school, graduating, getting married, and having her own child. After all, don't grandparents have a right to tell their children to be careful with their grandchildren? I Love You, Be Careful is the perfect book to use for a "read-to-me" story. The parent can read the minimal text, and the child can use his or her imagination to explain the background and what's going on. In addition, there's a page to personalize it as a special gift for parents and children. Judy Snider is also the author of Goldy's Baby Socks, a CWA award-winning children's picture book, and The Sacred Purse. Joan Dickrow, who is now working on her second picture book, The Porch Fairy, and Judy are sisters. Illustrator Cady Driver and her husband homeschool their three children. What a wonderful reminder that you're never too young, or too old, to be told, "I love you, be careful"!

I Love You, Be Careful is a whimsical and wonderful book that uses beautiful illustrations to capture many of the "be careful" moments we all experience throughout the different stages of our lives. The pictures are perfect for opening and sharing dialog with your children about taking care in the things they do on an everyday basis. This book is a great gift idea for a bride, or a new mom. You could even remove the pictures from the book and display them on the walls of a child's nursery or play room, where they can serve as a constant reminder to "be careful". Lovely book! Very well done, it would be a nice addition to any family library.
