I Love You All the Time

Free Spirit. Feb. 2022. 32p. Tr $16.99. ISBN 9781631985065.
PreS-K–A young child experiences the ups and downs of everyday life while hearing the soothing refrain “I love you all the time” from his caregivers. Riding his bike; crashing his bike; feeling sad, mad, and scared; making and cleaning up messes; sleeping and not sleeping; the message is the same: unconditional love. The warm watercolor and pencil illustrations add even more comfort to the sweet and lilting rhythm of the story. Young readers will also enjoy the mischievous cat that makes frequent appearances in the illustrations. An author’s note explains the inspiration for the book and offers four specific ideas for helping children feel loved and lovable. Kris uses realistic examples of how to put this advice into practice in helpful and realistic ways.
VERDICT Though not particularly original in concept, the book presents enough advice and reassurance to make it a worthwhile additional purchase.
