Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Every adult who loves a child knows how deep and rich that love can be.and#160;Little ones are lovable on theand#160;outside, with their tiny ears, eyes, and toes. And they're lovable for who they areand#160;on the inside, as they sing, play, and shout.and#160;Robin Cruise and Caldecott Honor winner Margaret Chodos-Irvine portray a diverse trio of parents and children in this lyrical celebration of a love that makes each child feel like the one and only.

Review:

"Cruise's (Little Mam Forgets) parental cooing provides soothing accompaniment to another sumptuous series of domestic portraits from Caldecott Honor artist Chodos-Irvine (Ella Sarah Gets Dressed). The book visits three parent-child pairs (including one father-son duo) at different points during the day and year. Evening finds a mother lovingly ushering her preschool-age daughter from bath to bedtime: 'I love your kiss,/ your gentle sleep./ I love to watch you dream,/ so deep./ .../ I love my one, my only.../ you.' The text's reverie mood teeters towards the soporific at times, but it's constantly buoyed by the visual energy that emanates from Chodos-Irvine's full-bleed spreads and spot illustrations. Using an array of printmaking techniques, she gives her colors, textures and shapes a robust physical presence that makes even the most familiar domestic set pieces seem fresh and unsentimental. The artist is at her most impressive when working in extreme close-up, capturing the unalloyed affection and physical intimacy that defines the first years of the parent-child relationship: the way a boy wraps his whole body around his father's head during an autumn piggyback ride, the utter bliss shared in a morning tickle of baby's knees, toes and feet. Ages 3-5. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
