Full Text Reviews:

Booklist - 08/01/2022 A mother and her little boy shelter under a yellow umbrella and play in the rain as they search for butterflies. Rhyming text expresses senses and emotions: after “I love you like sweet and like tart, (accompanying a pitcher of lemonade) comes, “I love you like crazy with all of my heart.” (with an illustration of many large and small brown hands shaping a heart cookie together.) The soft digital illustrations in colored pencil include people of many races, genders, ages, and abilities, and depict fun activities—time at the beach, kite-flying with grandpa, stargazing with dad, singing, dancing and dressing up with Mama, and the ordinary happenings of family life, such as getting dressed for the day (in one spot-on depiction, a boy lies on his back, legs curled up, to pull up his socks). In a soothing ending, a warm bedtime kiss goodnight and cozy snuggle finish off the day. It’s a full circle exploration of the numerous ways adults and children experience and share their unconditional love. - Copyright 2022 Booklist.
