I Love You As Much... - Melmed

What a beautifully written book of a mother's expression of love toward her child. "Said the mother whale to her child, 'I love you as much as the ocean is deep.'" Animals sharing their love for their offspring are beautifully illustrated. I just really was touched by the poetry of this book even as simple as it is. My daughter who is almost 3 said, "awww mommy, you love us." when we got done with this book. Definitely a good book when your child comes away knowing they are loved. :)

We have this one, too. And, I always use different voices for the animals. Our favorite is the whale, because we pretend to be underwater-talking. :)
