There’s nothing like the love between a mother and her child. I Love You More Than Most journeys a child’s development from toddler to young adult with a mother who displays gentle reassurances of love and security. Parent and child engage in a comforting ritual throughout the years reciting their “special code” and building an indelible bond. What began as a mother instilling values and unyielding love for her child blossoms into an unexpected turn when her child ultimately comforts his mother with the same unwavering love he received from her.
What a special book! I bought this for my son after reading it in the bookstore and falling in love with the sweet story. A must for your child, grandchild or the child of a friend of family member! This is a bookshelf staple that shares an invaluable and timeless message of unconditional love and the like-no-other bond between a child and his or her mother. Highly recommend!
This Book is a MUST HAVE! I bought this book for my daughter to read to my grandson every night. This is a precious book and one I believe will stand the test of time and become a classic.. It tells a poignant story about a mother imparting her love to her child throughout his life. She has a special phrase shared only between herself and her son. Those special phrases and the love are what make children feel loved and secure.
I Love You More Than Most is a celebration of love – a touching story about a mother’s effort raise a confident, kind, resilient, happy, independent child. A must for any bookshelf!
Wonderful book for children and mothers, especially to read together, as one of the opening pages of this book begins, tucking her son into bed, closing the night with a bedtime story. I Love You More Than Most is above all positive, and reinforces the lifetime bond, from infancy through college years of a child and mother. It is a book that will help bond parents and young children and implant the idea that the bond between a mother and child is forever, not just for until the child hits teenage years. It is beautifully illustrated and will help children feel secure in their relationship with their parents, as well as help reinforce a parent’s attachment to their child. This is a great gift for any mother with young children.
Great teachable moments in this sweet mother/child story…heartwarming. I especially liked the last 2 pages where the boy gives his mom A huge gift- the acknowledgement and gratitude for all the life lessons she taught & showed him…very touching. And the last page…awwwww.
This book, with terrific illustrations and a wonderful parent/child relationship, is destined to become a classic!
What an incredibly heartwarming and endearing story. Truely a new classic that will be on the shelves for generations! A touching story of the incredible mother-child bond and a book I will be reading to my son for years to come. Highly recommend!
This book is a heartfelt reflection of guidance, inspiration and affection without any limitations between a mother and her child. This is a “must have” for any child’s library.
I bought this book for my grandchildren. The perfect book to read to your child. A story of a mother’s loving relationship with her child and the special way they say I love you.
I Love You More Than Most is a sweet book about a mother and son and the love that is shared between them as a son conquers different stages of life.
This is a story you will want to read again and again. Sure to become a childhood favorite.
Great kids’ book!
A truly touching story that every parent and every child can relate to as we all experience growing up and lessons learned from a parent. So sweet at the end when the tables are turned. Heartwarming. Would definitely recommend.
A beautiful children’s book! A beautiful and wonderfully written book of the unconditional love between a mother and a child. But, I would argue, as a dad, just as applicable to daddies. My daughter and I had the same code words and exchanges as she grew up… “I love you”, “I love you more”, “I love you most”, and she would end with “I love you to the moon and back”. Love the story, but mostly love the value and life lessons. Never let a day go by that you do not tell your child you love them! Destined to be a classic in children’s literature. Thank you Nancy for the lovely read. It made me cry.
Such a heartwarming story, it brought tears to my eyes. I purchased copies for my grandchildren ages 6 months to 18 years. The story has something for all ages. Can’t wait for Christmas!!!
