About the Author
Marta Cabrol was born near Barcelona in 1976. She was very lucky to have a mother who worked in the library where she spent many hours reading lots of books. This was an important influence on her because it helped create a special sensibility to the world of images. Now for her own illustrations, she combines the children’s world of imagination, storytelling, and reading, which have always been an important part of her life.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
“When do I love you, little one? My love for you has just begun! I’ll love you today, tomorrow—whenever! My snuggle bug, I’ll love you forever,” Marta Cabrol’s illustrated children’s book, When Do I Love You? ends. ~ What ~ At twenty pages, this board book with rounded corners targets preschool children and older. With no scary scenes, it shows animal parents reminding their children that they love them and will always be there for them. Written in rhyme with some complicated wording, this book has ducks, bears, lizards, cats, mice, moose, dogs, raccoons, goats, and humans showing how a parent would do anything to show their love toward their offspring. The illustrations are colorful but have enough detail to engage young ones. ~ Why ~ This is a cute book that parents will enjoy reading to their children as it promotes love. I like the fun way the words go with the story such as a lizard parent hugging a baby in a blizzard, mice reading in a tree house, calling a dog’s name in the fog, and raccoons in an air balloon watching the planes and birds fly by. ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not have children may have no need for this book. Some may wonder if it promotes there is a time when a parent does not love their child since it only mentions forever (the words “all the time” are not used) at the last page. Beginner readers may have trouble with some of the two- and three-syllable words. ~ Wish ~ While I found the rhyming charming with the adult animals telling their offspring they would do just about anything to show love for them, I wish it mentioned God and how He loves us unconditionally. ~ Want ~ If you are looking for a book that reiterates how a father or mother loves their child dearly shown through animals and their charges, this would be a thoughtful read. Thanks to Book Look Bloggers for furnishing this complimentary book that I am freely reviewing.
