It had been a big day. It had been a hard night.
Many parents can identify with the opening pages of Kat Yeh’s book, You’re Lovable to Me. Long nights and sometimes longer days can often leave parents tired and cranky. However, it’s important that we continue to show our children that no matter what, we love them unconditionally. As the mother rabbit in Yeh’s book explains to her little ones, no matter what a child’s feelings may be, the child is always “loveable to me.”
The simple prose, combined with Sue Anderson’s sweet illustrations, makes a wonderful book about unconditional love for toddlers or preschoolers and their parents. This would make a wonderful story to use for reconnection after a big day or a long night.
