I Love You Because You're You
This is such a sweet story about a mother's unconditional love for her child. Sam McBratney's illustrations feature a mother fox and her rambunctious little boy. The rhyming text shares how the mother fox loves her child no matter what his mood- sad, proud, shy, sleepy, etc. Jonathan loved this reassuring story. I liked it too- it was a good reminder to me to keep reaffirming my love for Jonathan and Grace-- even when they are in a more challenging mood.
Mama's Right Here
This is the follow-up book to I Love You because You're You. This story features a mama and baby kangaroo. The mother affirms that she will always be here to support or comfort her child. It's another cute book with a needed message, but I enjoyed the first book the most. Jonathan liked the two books equally well and requested them often. The one thing I would share is that my husband didn't appreciate that it was only from a Mama's perspective.
Both books are well worth checking out!
