You Are My I Love You

Written by Maryann K. Cusimano
Illustrated by Satomi Ichikawa
New York: Philomel Books, 2001
2+ years

Parents and children have a special connection, a bond that transcends time.

Maryann Cusimano tells a simple but beautiful story that reveals the love and compatibility between a parent and child. Each page reads like the phrase of a song, a lyrical ballad or lovely serenade that allows the parent to show the depth of their relationship. "I am your calm face; you are my giggle. I am your wait; you are my wiggle." The words on the page beg to be spoken in wonderful poetic rhythm. The wonderful watercolor illustrations perfectly match the playful prose. You Are My I Love You is a simple tale of course, but even childlike adults without children of their own may find memories of their own childhood with those who loved them between the covers of the book.
