I Love You Through and Through by Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak

Recommendation: Highly Recommended

A charming little book that reaffirms your love for you little one - in every way. You won't be able to read this just one time!

Positives: Any books that tells kids we love them can't be all that bad, right?! The illustrations are adorable and I love how it encourages interaction as you read. We even make up our own things to add to the book!

Negatives: There is one page that I don't like at all.  As it talks about the different emotions you love in your child it says "I love...your mad side." This simply isn't true in our house. I don't love my child's sinful anger and neither does God, but I do still love them when they are angry.

Talking Points: I use the page referring to anger to also teach them about how a holy God hates sin, including anger and yet sent His Son to save sinful people like me. Joshua 23:14-16, John 3:16, I Tim. 1:15

Age Level: 0-5
