All The Things I Love About You
All The Things I Love About You. LeUyen Pham. 2010. November 2010. HarperCollins. 40 pages.
There are oh so many things I love about you.
I love the way your hair looks in the morning.
I love how you look in pajamas.
Although getting you out of them is another story.
I love...how you eat.
I love watching you play with Papa.
I loved, loved, loved LeUyen Pham's Big Sister, Little Sister, so I was VERY excited to see she had a new book: All The Things I Love About You. I was NOT disappointed! This one is so sweet, so adorable, and oh-so-true! In this one, a mom is sharing the many-many ways she loves her child--her baby. In this case, it's a boy. But it wouldn't have to be a boy. All of the sentiment could just as easily be expressed for a dear baby girl!
This one is focused on the family, on the intimate scenes of family life. From the "struggles" of getting a little one dressed in the morning, to the sweet little hugs, to the sloppy mealtimes, etc. Through text and illustration, this family comes to life for readers.
