I Love You Because You’re You
Author: Liza Baker
Illustrator: David McPhail
Purchased at: FAO Schwarz
Why: It was close to Valentine’s Day and I thought a fun little book about love would be a cute addition to our library. Plus it rhymes and I’m a sucker for rhymes.
Pros: cute little place inside front cover to fill out “This book belongs to:_______”; endearing message – no matter what, mom loves you because you’re you!
Funny Note: When my husband read this for the first time he asked why the mother is dressed like she is on Star Trek. Ever since he made that comment I can’t shake that image, even though I never would have made that connection had he not mentioned it.
Durability: 5 bite marks! This is one tough book. It’s kind of puffy and my son hasn’t made a dent. Can we have more books bound this way please?
