A copy of this book was provided by the publisher in exchange for my honest review

From the author of the New York Times bestseller I Wish You More comes a book that promises continuous love and makes the perfect gift for fans of Emily Winfield Martin’s The Wonderful Things You Will Be and those looking for something new to add to their shelves next to the classic The Runaway Bunny.  

 Wherever you are,
Wherever you go,
Always remember
And always know. . . 

That feeling you always have in your heart?

That’s me loving you.

Amy Krouse Rosenthal captures parents’ desire to be ever-present in this simple and touching poem offering reassurance of their love. Signs of affection can be found in the natural world around us—from a soft breeze to a shimmering star. 

Beautifully illustrated, and poetically written, this book is a cherished keepsake. 
It's a book that will make you smile, and feel important. No matter how old or young you are. With simple wordings, and heartfelt illustrations, this is one book that will cheer up it's readers.  

We absolutely loved this book. It's a wonderful reminder that no matter where you go, or how far apart you are, you're loved, and thought of. It's a book that will be bring comfort to those missing a loved one, or for those just venturing off for the first time, whether on their first day of school, day care, or heading off to make their mark in the world, it will bring courage. 

This book reminded of the ones I loved looking through as a kid, that my mother had. It has the same poetic messages, and beautiful illustrations as those books had. Like those books, this book has a timeless feel to it. It's perfect to read at bed time, or anytime. I highly recommend picking this one up. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
