I Love You More

I was recently contacted and asked to review a children's book,
I Love You More by Laura Duksta. I read the book to my kids the day it arrived and they loved it! This book is one of the sweetest books I've read. It's a flip book so on one side, you read from a mother's perspective to her child and then flip it over to read the child's perspective to his mother.

I love you longer than the longest lollipop ever lasted.
I love you louder than the loudest rocket ship ever blasted.
I love you taller than the tallest giraffe ever grown.
I love you more, so much more than you’ve ever known.

We have read it many, many times since it came in the mail and each time, I love it more. Pun totally intended! The book has sparked a new game in our house, the "I love you more!" game where when someone says "I love you" you must respond with "I love you more!" and then come up with your own little phrase to follow.

Not only is the book sweet, the story of the author really touched me. You can read more about her here.

The only complaint about this book came from Sister who was appalled that the child in the book was a boy, not a girl. Seriously, this is her complaint about everything lately from the person who checks us out at the grocery store to the local weather reporter. So, don't hold that against the book, ok?


  1. Sounds like a cute book! I will have to add it to my list.

  2. What a cute book idea! Sounds like a great gift to give too.

    My 26 year old daughter and I end all our cards and e-mails with "I love you the mostest!". Sometimes the other one sends back "No, I love YOU the mostest!", then "No, I love you the very, very mostest", then "I love you the no question about it mostest!" and on and on. It's a fun way to show our love.


  3. I saw this today in Hallmark and read it and it is SO adorable!! It is the cutest/sweetest book ever!!!!! It's on our "list!"
