LeUyen Pham is the bestselling illustrator of Grace for President, and Freckleface Strawberry and her dazzling illustrations come to life once again in her latest, All the Things I Love About You.
The book is dedicated "For all those many mamas who love their little boys!" And those mamas will enjoy reflecting on the many things they love about their child-- the way his hair sticks up in the morning, the way he looks in pajamas and the way he hugs like this...and this...and this!
But it's the illustrations that make this a fun read as mom tries to wrestle with her son as she's putting on his pajamas, how the little boy makes a mess with his food, how Dad throws him around, and the many instances where the little boy is calling Mama (yes on the toilet, and while she's trying to catch some ZZzz's) Every mom will be able to relate!
Overall, it's one of those books that will have you grabbing your little guy and giving him one big hug.
