"Written in quatrains that break into couplets across each double page, this lullaby rhyme catalogues various animals and their offspring, describing each mother's testament of love." School Library Journal.
"The light-drenched, golden-toned pictures exert a quietly hypnotic effect on both reader and listener, aided by the lullaby's sonorous repetition of each mother animal's love poem to her baby." New York Times

After an upsetting visit from Child Services driven by false allegations made by my ex-husband I took my son to Barnes and Noble to purchase a chapter book. We were at customer service there was a table with various books on it that I was leaning on. Under my hand was this book. I picked it up to read it. I then read it to my son as we waited there were tears in his eyes as he told me how much he loved me and he asked if we could buy it. I bought this book and we have read it now 3 times within 24 hours. There are now two books this and 'Love you forever' that someday will be placed in with my son's keepsakes so he will always know the love we share.......
I found this book when I was expecting my now six year old daughter and was so impressed I bought it after her birth. My daughter loves the rythym and the pictures. I now include this as a gift to my friends as they announce the births of thier children.
'I Love You As Much' is a sweet book that expresses the love between mother and baby using soothing rymhes and animal characters. The illustrations are beautiful and soft, words are gentle and flowing. The book shows the greatness of love that a mother feels for her child like no other we have read so far.
