9781927018460: If I Wrote a Book About You

""If I wrote a book about you and how wonderful you are, I would write it everywhere,"" says a mother to her child. And so she does—with the branches of the trees, the sand at the beach, and even the rays of the sun. This beautiful picture book eloquently and uniquely conveys a mother's love for her child. Children will enjoy searching out the big words hidden in plain sight in the images. And parents will appreciate the message that a child makes you experience the world differently.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:


If I wrote a book about you and how wonderful you are, I would write it everywhere.
 
I would write that you are captivating in the branches of the trees. I would write that you are perfect in the pawprints on the snow.
 
I would write that you are entertaining with the toys on the floor. I would write that you are clever with the crumbs from your crackers.
 
With the dandelions on the front lawn, I would spell out that you are magnificent, and with the vegetables growing in the garden, I would say that you are strong.
 
With the peas on your plate, I would write that you are delectable, and that you are delicious with the noodles in your soup.
 
I would write that you are amazing with the telephone wires and that you are fascinating with the yellow lines that run down the middle of the road.
