Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati J.D.
This lovely poem succinctly explains the concept of unconditional love to very young children. Small tests are made of Large by posing hypothetical situations in which Small feels that he may lose her love. Large assures him with tender, loving verse that her love is always present, whether they are together or are far away from each other. She also lets him know that love can be mended "with time together, a smile, and a kiss..." The bright illustrations carry the story along and have enough detail for careful study. This book would be a thoughtful addition to a child's library. Parents will enjoy the soothing tone and strong message. Readers looking for a book similar to Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney will find it here. Now available in a large board book format for parents to share with their little ones. Reviewer: Jeanne K. Pettenati, J.D.
