Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Susan L. Roth brings back her gorgeous and delicate paper collage artwork in My Love for You All Year Round, done in the style of My Love for You (1999). The book takes readers through each month of the year, describing the extent of the narrator's love for his or her offspring. "My love for you is louder than fireworks in July, and quieter than a lazy August" (this last shows the small brown mouse sitting on the white mouse's lap for a story). Combined with the captivating collages, the text makes for a soothing display of love, any time of year. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
Children's Literature
A big mouse and a small mouse share their love for each other throughout the year—warmer than a snowsuit in January, gentler than a newborn lamb in March, fuller than families in November. Each page is bursting with the colors and textures of Susan Roth's trademark cut paper illustrations. On the title page, she tells us that she makes her collages with "big and small scissors, curved and straight tweezers, Japanese rice-based paste, and papers from everywhere." If you look carefully among the green papers of March, you'll even spot a single real clover. Notice the minute details of the fireworks and the soft sand of the August afternoon. My Love for You All Year Round is perfect for bedtime reading and family cuddling, but it can also inspire creativity in the classroom: how many ways can children cut paper to look like trees or flowers? how does art look different when you use paper that feels different? And what a marvelous way to learn about the importance of adjectives, which have all been gathered on a single page at the end of the book—softer, louder, quieter, plumper, fuller, warmer, funnier, sweeter, gentler, brighter, rosier, cozier. 2003, Dial, Ages 2 to 6.

School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1-The big white mouse and a little brown mouse from My Love for You (Dial, 1997) are back, this time expressing their affection for one another throughout the months of the year. They share sunny days, boxes of chocolates, fireworks, and much more. The text is simple ("My love for you is warmer than a snowsuit in JANUARY" or "brighter than MAY wildflowers") and the comparisons are just right for the intended audience. Made from a wide variety of colored and textured papers, the multilayered cut-paper collages are filled with colorful details. The warm hues perfectly match the story's sentiment. A gentle book for one-on-one snuggling, as well as a wonderful way to learn about the months and the vocabulary of emotions.-Genevieve Gallagher, Orange County Public Library, VA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

This book has the same type of collage-type pictures as My Love For You. The illustrator/author really captures the mood of the different months of the year in this sweet story. This is a favorite of mine and my children's.
