New York Times bestselling author and illustrator!
“Readers young and old will love the wordplay, smile at the adoring relationship between cow and calf, and be reminded that love has no bounds.” ―School Library Journal
From the bestselling and beloved team behind I Wish You More comes a moo-ving ode to the love between parent and child. Tom Lichtenheld and Amy Krouse Rosenthal present udderly perfect expressions of affection to share between any cow and calf:
I love you no matter your moo-d.
I love giving you a big s-moo-ch.
My love for you is as big as . . . a MOO-SE!
Simple and silly, this is moo-st definitely a fun book to read out loud over and over again. The book describes all the ways in which you can love a child, with every sentence containing a word that has been changed into a moo-word: moo-sic, sch-moo-zing, hu-moo-r, and even moo-zarella! The bold illustrations and simple color scheme add to the fun of the story.
Aside from its value as a sweet, funny bedtime story, this colorful, charming picture book helps readers develop vocabulary. After your child has listened to the story, they should have a grand time volunteering their own word lists that might include plays on “moo” and other cow-related words.
With a universal message and warm, inviting text that families will reread together, this exuberant book from a bestselling author and artist team at their best is a moo-velous choice for gifts year-round, especially for fans of I Love You to the Moon and Back and Guess How Much I Love You.
