Every adult who loves a child knows how deep and rich that love can be. Little ones are lovable on the outside, with their tiny ears, eyes, and toes. And they're lovable for who they are on the inside, as they sing, play, and shout. 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.

I absolutely love this book! It is so sweet. Basically it is a parent professing their love to their child. The parent just loves everything about the child inside and out and without condition. It is great book to read to your children as a bedtime story or just to tell them you love them. The pictures in this book are very vibrant and rich in color. They cover both pages of the book and are very bright and attractive. They would be very appealing to young children. I think a child at any age will appreciate this book. I would definitely recommend this book for every parent's home library. It is definitely a staple in mine and I'm not even a parent yet but I can't wait to read this book to my future children. I came across this book as part of a school project because I am studying to become a teacher and children's literature is a big staple in the education field. I simply just fell in love with this book along the way.
I read a lot of books to children under age 5, including infant story time, and this one just grabbed me right away. The theme of a parent's love is used in so many picture books it's hard to choose. This one covers different age children as well as various ethnicites. It also shows the passing of time through the day, ending with a bath, of course. The length is just right and the art is a great match.
