If you start the book on the side with the Mother’s eyes towards you, the conversation of love is told from the Mother’s perspective as she tells her child how much she loves him:
“I love you fuller than the fullest moon you ever knew.”
If you start the book on the side with the child’s eyes towards you, the conversation of love is told from the child’s perspective as he tells his Mother how much he loves her:
“I love you longer than the longest lollipop ever lasted.”
Both conversations meet in the middle of the book with an illustration of the earth.
My 5 year old has requested to read this book every night for the past week. She loves the word patterns and Karen Keesler’s beautiful illustrations throughout the book.
