Love You Always based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
Love You Always is a very sweet encouraging read for little ones, the ages say three to six, but I can see it for much younger. It reads as a delightful rhyming, with coordinating pictures to compliment each verse. The pages are paper, so that is probably why you wouldn’t want your toddler carrying it around. Sure to be a come to book for a read that tells your little one how much they are loved, and it continues for each member of the extended family, Mama, Daddy, Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie, Uncle, Cousin, and Family Friend! “Sweet Leaf on the family tree, you are steeped in love like tea!” What a way to show how many people love your child, and with really sweet pastel drawing on each page, sure to delight! I received this book through WorthyKids/Ideas Blog Tour, and was not required to give a positive review.
This is a very sweet children's book. It talks about how everyone will love you always. Your mother, your father, grandparents and others. It is well written and has wonderful illustrations. I received a copy of this book from Worthykids for a fair and honest opinion that I gave of my own free will.
This gentle and lovely little book exudes joyful living and encourages little ones to know and accept that they are loved. They are loved always and by a host of people. Their mama, their father, their grandparents, and on and on. The love is there even though they are not always nice and sweet. Love is for always. I am so encouraged by the joyful illustrations that Gillian Flint has presented using black pen lines with soft hues of gentle watercolors. The joy is in the action and in the facial expressions of the characters. Pictured are a variety of individual grown ups and children. The children range from blonds to darker skinned curly heads. Eileen Spinelli uses simple rhymes that roll easily off the tongue with a vocabulary that young listeners will understand. I like the concept of the child being a leaf on the family tree and that family members and those outside the immediate family are included in the range of people who Love You Always. A charming book. DISCLOSURE: A complimentary copy was provided by WorthyKids/Ideals to facilitate this review. Opinions are my own, alone and freely given.
