Synopses & Reviews
Sammy's mother finished his bedtime story and kissed him on the tip of his nose. This always made Sammy smile. "I love you", she said.
Sammy smiled again and looked at her. "Why do you love me?" he asked.
So begins this gently reassuring story about a mothers unconditional love. Mother explains to Sammy that it's not what he does that makes her love him--while she appreciates all the wonderful things he does, she loves him because he's the one and only Sammy in the world, and because he's her son.
Why Do You Love Me? is a wonderful book for parents and children to read together, guaranteed to open the door to parent and child discussions about love as both a feeling and a responsibility.
