Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1

Parr's smiley-faced people are back in this ode to unconditional love. The die-cut cover, revealing a child with arms open wide framed in a heart, sets a cheery tone. Each spread describes a situation and its opposite, such as "I love you when you are scared. I love you when you are brave." As in his previous books, the author/illustrator employs a palette of primary colors outlined in black for his depictions of diverse people and objects. The drawings look like something a child could do, and will likely inspire kids to pick up markers and create their own "I Love You" pictures.-Martha Simpson, Stratford Library Association, CT

Kirkus Reviews
"I love you when you are scared. / I love you when you are brave. / I love you when I am away. / I love you when we are cuddled up close." A characteristically multicolored cast of parents strings together declarative sentences to describe all the conditions under which they love their children, ending with, "Most of all, I love you just the way you are." Parr's entry in the Valentine's Day sweepstakes looks like every other one of his books-childlike figures with heavy black outlines, bright primary hues with little regard to real coloration-and sounds like 90 percent of the rest of the "I love you" books. Ho-hum. (Picture book. 2-5)
