Editorial Reviews

Jean-Ellen Kegler
My favorite rocks are back, this time providing colorful and evocative assurances that each of us is loved—always. With Love You When . . . , Linda Kranz creates an engaging testament to the timelessness of love, once again aided by her frisky and ingenious buddies, the boldly painted rocks who so artfully share her stories. Kranz’s gentle touch with word and brush belies the exquisite power of her message: I love you always. This may be a children’s book, but children should make sure their adults have one, too!

I was thrilled to read [the] beautiful book Love You When. . . . The images, the message, the rocks! What an amazing book! . . . Once again you have inspired me and made my world a better place. Thanks for being you!

. . . Beautifully illustrated with a motif of rocks and stones, this might be a more personal book as a gift. Teachers will enjoy the writing pattern templates on the author’s website.

This sweet book is the perfect bedtime or anytime story to share with your little ones.
Kirkus Reviews
This love letter of a book from parent to child includes lovely photographs of carefully arranged and painted rocks, but an uninspired text falls short of its original artistic conceit. An absence of story hinders the book, which excludes character depictions, though an opening shot of a big, red, heart-shaped rock beside a smaller one suggests a parent and child. This picture is followed by a parental voice describing the everyday moments that inspire love, juxtaposed with painted and arranged rock tableaux. For example, a stone painted like the sun precedes text on the next page that says that the parent loves the child when "the first rays of sun light up the early morning sky." Although the child's voice had previously asked, "Do you think of me during the day?" it's unclear whether the child and parent are together or separate at this point, and at many others, throughout the book. The message of parental love is sweet and heartfelt, and the pictures are quite pretty. The sum of the parts, though, ultimately seems less like a picture book to be shared by the sort of parent and child whose voices emerge in the text and more like a gift book or a catalog of photographs to inspire readers to paint and arrange their own rocks. Artistically inspirational, if not inspired itself. (Picture book. 3-8)

    "Love You When..." is a beautiful book to use as a gif

    "Love You When..." is a beautiful book to use as a gift for a loved one or to read before bed with your child. Some of the photographs are quite well done, and others are just "cute", but the book overall is pleasing. The concept is simple: I love you when (enter season/time here). The artwork follows the statement on the page. Should appeal to kids and adults alike, especially with the bright colors.
