Nana’s Thoughts When I was asked to review this book I saw the title and read the snippet – a touching picture book, written in soothing rhymes, that reassures kids of how deeply they are loved, and quickly requested a copy. I had no idea how profoundly this book would touch my heart and be such a perfect book for my granddaughter, now 4 years old. The only thing that would make the book more perfect would be if the mom and son on the cover and at the end of the story would be a dad and daughter. As we near the 2 year anniversary of my son’s death my heart is breaking like it was yesterday and my granddaughter is talking about her daddy all the time. That feeling you always have in your heart? That’s me loving you. Of course, this book would also be perfect for a parent and child that spend time apart when the parent goes to work or on a trip. It just speaks to me in a way that says the parent is gone forever, with the exception of the final page. That shimmering star? That’s me winking at you. That drifting cloud? That’s me thinking of you. Beautifully written and illustrated but I think there needed to be one more page repeating the title – That’s me loving you, because the book ends abruptly and loses the flow that was so perfect. I was trying desperately to turn the page to finish the story that way it should have been done. I can’t wait to share this story with my granddaughter the next time she comes for a visit.
