At bedtime, Katie and her father try to describe how much they love each other

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-A message about the height and breadth of love is sweetly expressed in this simple story. After Daddy has tucked Katie into bed, father and daughter try to outdo one another with statements about the greatness of their love. Each time the child says "I love you all the way to the ceiling" or "to the sky" or "to the moon," her father tops her with "all the way to the roof" or "to the satellites in space" or "to Pluto." She has the last word, however, when she says "all the way to God," and the entire family adopts this statement. The repetition and rhythm of the text and the originality of the concept make the book delightful to read aloud, and yet beginning readers can handle it alone. The exuberant, double-page illustrations created by the authors' children have a primitive sophistication. Using deep, gleaming colors, the paintings feature hearts, stars, birds, night skies, a rainbow, a purple Pluto, a bespectacled father, and a pug-nosed Katie.

From Publishers Weekly:

What was probably a charming family anecdote turns disingenuous in this tale written by a pediatrician and his eight-year-old daughter, and illustrated by the girl and her four brothers. Katie describes how Daddy tucks her into bed with a game: the two trade increasingly expansive terms of endearment ("I love you all the way to the ceiling"A"I love you all the way to the roof"), ending with Katie's unexpectedly profound "I love you all the way to God." It's a great punch line, but the artless build-up ("This game was getting to be fun!") serves only to point out the gulf between this enterprise and its expert counterparts (e.g., Guess How Much I Love You). The children's art is refrigerator-door caliber. Ages 3-7.
