    Beautiful Illustrations and Storyline

    A beautifully written, poetic book. I've been reading this book to my daughter since she was only weeks old; now she is 6 and this is her favorite book to read to me!

    This is a longtime favorite of ours

    We love this story! More importantly, our 3- (nearly 4-) year-old wants to hear this story over and over again. And, as our son's "story-readers," we don't get bored with it, either. It's a great book to give as a gift, and although there is a line in the book ". . . You are my King," we tactfully inserted "(or Queen!)" for a friend who recently had a little girl. Our little guy has the book memorized-- rhyming and cadence facilitates this. Finally, the illustrations are truly beautiful and warm. Kudos to author AND artist! You can't go wrong with this lovely book! This is a wonderful read for big and little alike.

    Such a wonderful book

    True story, this book really represents everything our children are to us and we are to them at this age (2-5).
    At the moment, the children are young and don't fully understand what the book is talking about, but it really hits home to us parents. I strongly recommend this book and bought copies for my brother, sister and sister in law's children. They may not get it now being so young, but one day it will click and I know they will all smile.

    Endearing!!!Beautiful!!!!Heartwarming!!!

    I found this book at a discount store tossed on a shelf. I began to read it in the middle of the aisle and quickly my heart swelled and tears welled in my eyes because it said everything I felt as a parent. I quickly took the book to my husband and made him read it too. He too got that "masculine emotional" look and said, "We are getting this book!" It is the perfect description of our daily life with our daughter. The give and take relationship between a parent and child and the expounding love you have for your child as a parent. It would be a beautiful gift for expecting or new parents. Just don't let the expecting mother read it right there at the shower...she will definately cry! I wish the publisher would make this book for infants in the hard cardboard pages. My daughter squeals and slaps at the pictures and wants to touch the pages with her moist baby hands. I love that she is excited to hear the book but I don't want to ruin it either. I will buy another if she does destroy it...it is that wonderful of a book!

    A beautiful story...

    I love the rhythm of reading this one outloud. It's a delightful book to share with a child you love. I also really love the 2nd book, "You Are My Miracle" with it's Christmas theme.

    Beautiful heart-warming book

    We bought this book for our daugher while on vacation. When I got back the the house and read the book tears streamed down my face. It can be a little corny, but the writer does such a great job of attempting to put the love you have for your child into words. Great, great book!

    A Loving Day In The Life

    This book is a classic with a positive message about the day in the life of the Teddy Bear family. It shows a loving relationship between child and parent through the ups and downs of the day and play. Adorable illustrations highlight the timeless story. I recommend You Are My I Love You highly. You won't be disappointed you chose this one.

    This is an heriloom book!!! I love it!!!

    I purchased this book when my son Aedan was 3 months old....tears poured down my cheeks while purchasing it. It truly put all my feelings in writing. My pregnancy was tough and I didn't know if he would make it. He is here, healthy and this book sure puts life in perspective. I value him so much and by being able to read him this wonderful book just lets him know how much I care. I even wrote my own dedication in the front so he will have it forever. I recommend this book to EVERY person who loves children.

    first time mother to be

    I am recommending this book to EVERYONE. mothers, fathers, grandparents aunts uncles cousins mentors! I used to work in a barnes and noble bookstore 2 years ago in the childrens department, I read this book one time to myself and I cried on my shift. It then became my favorite book in the whole world! I put it on the employee recomendations list and read it to children during story time, and insisted that parents buy it for their children no matter how old they are. I myself am now expecting my first baby in December and this is the very first book that I plan on buying to start my baby's library. In fact I think I'll buy a few extra copies to give to friends who are also expecting... even if you dont have a special child in your life... read this book it will touch your heart.

    A must-have for your baby's book collection!

    I received this book from a family friend after my daughter was born. I absolutely fell in love with it. The illustations are beautiful...and ever time we read it, we find something else that makes us smile! Several of my friends have had babies over the past year. I always include this book with their gift. It is the kind of book that you just HAVE to share with other parents. It is very special!
