A perfect gift for a mother to share with her child is I Love You, Too! by Eve Bunting and illustrated by Melissa Sweet. Beautiful illustrations accompany the story that begins with Little Brown Puppy searching for a gift for his mother. He brings a bone to her, so she tells him she loves the bone. She also tells him that she loves him too. Other animals then begin looking for the perfect gift for their mothers. Each mother animal loves the gift and tells her offspring that she loves him/her also. The story ends with Billy giving his mother the best gift with her responding that she loves him too. Rhyming is used in each animal’s conversation. Reading and discussing this book together can affirm parent love. We hope you enjoy this book!
