I Love You As Much by Laura Krauss Melmed and illustrated by Henri Sorensen

Tender watercolor illustrations and gentle, rhyming poems make this celebration of the love between mothers and babies a wonderful choice for bedtime. Each page includes an animal mother and child with the mother speaking her love for the child, such as the mother horse telling her foal, “I love you as much as a warm summer breeze.” The final page of the book includes a human mother telling her newborn, “I love you as much as a mother can love.” Touching and sentimental, this is a lovely book.
