From the author of the New York Times bestseller I Wish You More comes a book that promises continuous love and makes the perfect gift for fans of Emily Winfield Martin’s The Wonderful Things You Will Be and those looking for something new to add to their shelves next to the classic The Runaway Bunny.
Wherever you are,
Wherever you go,
And always know. . .
That feeling you always have in your heart?
That’s me loving you.
Amy Krouse Rosenthal captures parents’ desire to be ever-present in this simple and touching poem offering reassurance of their love. Signs of affection can be found in the natural world around us—from a soft breeze to a shimmering star.
That’s Me Loving You is a cute and heartfelt children’s book that has many uses and will be loved by all who read it or are read it. The book let’s children know that even when they are not with their parent/grandparent (too I would think) they are with them. Even if it is the wind or a butterfly on their shoulder, they are there. I think this would be the perfect book for a child who is going to school for the first time, being away from mom. Even going to camp or to Grandma’s house for the weekend. I enjoyed the phrasing. The accompanying illustrations are cute and eye-catching. This could be a book for any time to show the love a mom has for their child. I know I had a hard time going to elementary school and being away from my mother, this would have been a big help. I think it could also work for if an adult has passed on, if combined with a compassionate rewording here and there.
