Overview

A family favorite since it was first published in 1994, I Love You, Sun/ I Love You, Moon has taught basic concepts to a generation of young children. Now, it can be used to introduce these concepts to Spanish readers.

Here, each child connects with what he or she sees in both Spanish and English-pointing at the sol/sun, watering a flor/flower, feeding a carrot to a conejo/bunny-all the while saying "Te amo/I love you" to each one. Tomie's adorable pictures warmly illustrate each activity, making it easy and fun to learn these simple Spanish and English words. A welcome addition to every toddler's library.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Children come into the world loving it, and parents can reinforce that love from an early age. This book is a simple affirmation of a child's love. Its text can be easily extended to include many other things children have come to love and the end has the perfection of the simply stated belief system as it concludes: "I love you, Earth. And you love me." The illustrations provide a vibrant picture of a child enjoying life.
School Library Journal
PreS-dePaola's familiar, charming illustrations of chubby, round-faced children carry this book, which teaches an appreciation for the natural world. The text is the epitomy of simplicity. Each page proclaims affection for some element of nature-``I love you, flower,'' ``I love you, stars,'' etc.-ending with ``And you love me.'' The bright artwork populated by multiethnic youngsters conveys the environmental message.-Emily Kutler, Summit Free Public Library, NJ

Meet the Author

Tomie dePaola was born in Meriden, Connecticut, in 1934 to a family of Irish and Italian background. By the time he could hold a pencil, he knew what his life's work would be. His determination to create books for children led to a BFA from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, and an MFA from the California College of Arts & Crafts in Oakland, California.

It drove him through the years of teaching, designing greeting cards and stage sets, and painting church murals until 1965, when he illustrated his first children's book, Sound, by Lisa Miller for Coward-McCann. Eventually, freed of other obligations, he plunged full time into both writing and illustrating children's books.

He names Fra Angelico and Giotto, Georges Rouault, and Ben Shahn as major influences on his work, but he soon found his own unique style. His particular way with color, line, detail, and design have earned him many of the most prestigious awards in his field, among them a Caldecott Honor Award for Strega Nona, the Smithsonian Medal from the Smithsonian Institution, the Kerlan Award from the University of Minnesota for his "singular attainment in children's literature," the Catholic Library Association's Regina Medal for his "continued distinguished contribution," and the University of Southern Mississippi Medallion. He was also the 1990 United States nominee for the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for illustration.

Tomie dePaola has published almost 200 children's books in fifteen different countries. He remains one of the most popular creators of books for children, receiving more than 100,000 fan letters each year.

Tomie lives in an interesting house in New Hampshire with his four dogs. His studio is in a large renovated 200-year-old barn.

- He has been published for over 30 years.
- Over 5 million copies of his books have sold worldwide.
- His books have been published in over 15 different countries.
- He receives nearly 100,000 fan letters each year.

- Caldecott Honor Award from American Library Association
- Newbery Honor Award from American Library Association
- Smithson Medal from Smithsonian Institution
- USA nominee in illustration for Hans Christian Andersen Medal
