I am eternally grateful... for my knack of finding in great books, some of them very funny books, reason enough to feel honored to be alive, no matter what else might be going on.

Guess How Much I Love You

AR: 2.8
Lexile: 690
RC: 3.7
by Sam McBratney     Illus. by Anita Jeram
Normal-length Picture Book
Genre: Fiction

YOU FOUND IT! This is my favorite picture book (and my favorite book, period)! Son loves his dad and dad loves him, too. That's basically it, end of story. It's just son and dad telling each other how much they love each other. But the simplicity of the words are rhythmic, almost poetic, and the pictures are really cute. I hope that when I have kids of my own I will be able to love them as purely as this dad loves his son. At the very least, I will read this book to them over and over and never get tired of it!
