What did you like about the book?  This sweet board book is an ode to parental love for a child.  “I love you more than…balloons love the moon/More than pudding loves a spoon/More than a tuba loves a tune.” The illustrations beautifully complement the story with smiling bunnies, bears and bees, and swirling leaves, flowers, snow and music.  A sweet bedtime story.
