These are two of my favorite kids books.
Guess How Much I Love You, is such a sweet book about how a little bunny wants to tell the bigger bunny how much he loves him.
This book has a special place in my heart because my son, Colton , always plays this game with me. He says, " Mom I love all around the universe to the moon and back 5 million, gazzion, jillion times," and I reply to him," I love you 6 million, gazzion, jillion times." And we keep going back and forth. He never realizes as long as he goes first, I can always get one more than him. After we go back and forth for about 5 minutes my oldest son chimes in with, I love you for infinity, infinity,infinity. He thinks he is cool when he uses big words like that.
Even when I am a very old women, I will always remember how Colton and I tried to always out do each other on how much we love each other. So this book will always have a special place in my heart.
The second book, Love You Forever, is another great book. First let me start by asking,"Am I the only one who can not read this book without crying?" It does not matter how many times I read this book, I can not get through it without crying. I am tearing up right now just thinking about. And no it is not my time of the month.
I use to read it all the time to my older kids, and I always would get "Why are you crying Mom?"
So I put the book away and have not read it for a while. So the other day I was reading a post and it made me think of this book. So I pulled it out and read it to my 2 younger kids. I said to myself I will not cry, it is silly to cry because I know what is going to happen. So I read it and it made me cry again. This is a great book that I think would touch any mom's heart.
If you have not read either of these book I definitely recommend them both. What are some of your favorite kid books? And why.
