I Love You More – book review and giveaway

EDITED TO ADD: This giveaway has been concluded. 

NaBloPoMo – Day 14

I love you more

There’s nothing else in the world quite like the love between a mother and child. The book “I Love You More,” written by Laura Duksta and illustrated by Karen Keesler, depicts the tender relationship between a mother and her son, and if you flip the book around, between the son and his mother. That’s right – this unique book can be read from either direction, each way offering a different perspective of love.

The art is beautiful and the prose is rhythmic, creative and sweet. It is a wonderful book that will no doubt be enjoyed through countless readings.

  1. I would keep this for my new son to be. We just got his referral from Korea and we’re so excited that he will be joining our family. We’d love to read this book to him. Thank you!

  2. Um, don’t want to win the book, but did want to make a comment. Beverly Cleary (I think) wrote a similarly organized book about the relationship between an older sister and younger brother. The book is called The Pain and the Great One. My mom got it for my brother and I when we were little; a good idea for Ava and Julian if they start getting into spats. 🙂

  3. What a cute idea for a children’s book. I would give this book to my sister who just had a little boy (after 4 girls). So sweet.

  4. I would give this book to my daughter-in-law. She just gave birth to my granddaughter 3 months ago. And…she named her after me!

  5. This would go right to my 2 y.o. son. We put him to bed saying “I love you.” He says “I looooooo.” We say “I love you more.” He says “I loooooo ma.”

  6. Hello, Thank you for sponsoring this book giveaway! Please enter me in your contest.
    The cover of the book is precious. Thanks, Cindi

  7. I’d like to say I’d do some noble thing and give it to some needy, helpless child somewhere….but I think the book looks way cute and I’d probably just give it to my kids, cause I’d love to snuggle up with them and ready it. I might have to look out for one for Christmas.

  8. I am pregnant with my first child, a son, and would give this book to him after he was born. It is an amazing feeling to have him growing inside of me, and I do not ever know if I will be able to express how much I love him already…before I have even “met” him.

  9. I have a 2-year-old son who is the light of my life. I would give this book to him for Christmas with the Reading Kaboodle that I got him (little travel mat with pillow and place to hold books).

  10. I have been wanting to get this book for my son…It sounds so sweet! My current favorite book he has is I’ll Love You Forever…If you haven’t heard of it, It’s Great too! Thanks for the chance to win!

  11. Oh, this looks like such a cute book for little ones. I’d give it to my one-year-old. She loves to sit in my lap and turn pages. What better to read than a book about love?

  12. I would keep it for my 16 month old son. He loves being read to while he’s in the bathtub! This looks like a cute book. Thanks for the giveaway!

  13. I would give this book to my friend Sara, who has a little boy. She just lost her little girl last weekend and this book would be a good opportunity for mom and son to bond.

  14. I would give this book to my best friend. SHe has 21 month-old son who, loves to snuggle with good books before naptime and bedtime.

  15. OH MY! What a beautiful looking/sounding book. MY one and only son, Jonah is about 8 months old now. I have been having so much trouble finding ANYTHING relating to a mama and her boy, this book would be a perfect book to share with him, and he to share with me. Thanks for offering up this amazing giveaway!

    I so hope I win!

    Count me in please!!!


  16. I would give it to my son who is 2 1/2. He would love it b/c he loves to be read to and each night before I close his door we have a “I LOVE YOU MORE” contest as to who can say it more!!

  17. I owuld love this for my son. He’s 8 and he’s still at the point where he wants me to lay with him for a bit when I put him to bed. I always give in to this because I know soon enough he’s going to be a 15 year old that may not want to be so mooshy with his mommy 🙁 This will be one more way that I can tell him how much he means to me 🙂

  18. I would give this book to my mother. She’s 63 and has been through so much. She survived her country’s genocide, came to America, learned 5 languages, raised my sisters and I by herself, and then was diagnosed with breast cancer when I was in my teens. She is a survivor and is currently battling lupus and MS, but that has not stopped her from being a great mom…and now a great Grandma. I would love to give this book to her as a token of thanks from my son and me.

  19. I would give it to my sister and my nephew who is 6 yrs old. Because he has autism and currently is having a very rough life right now. The kids in his class including his teacher arent very nice to him. His current situation is really heart breaking and I think this is just what they need. He loves books and what better book then one to show how much he is loved even when the world is cruel!

  20. I would give this book to my daughter Ava. Today is her first birthday!!! YEAH! I know that I could never love her more than I already do. She has been the highlight of my day every day since she was born.

  21. How adorable! I’d give it to my mom because we always say, “I love you more” as we are hanging up the phone. Of course, my 8 month old would be the one we’d read it to!

  22. I would keep ths book for myself and my son. He is sitting on my lap as I type this and I would love to read that book with him. Thank you for the giveaway!

  23. I would give this book to my baby boy! He will be here in February and this would make the best “first baby book” for him! I love books!

  24. I would give it to my precious neice. It would be one more way I could show her how much I adore and love her. Reading to her is something I treasure…..

  25. I love the title of this book. My 10 yr old daughter and I have our “thing” where we tell each other “I love you more” and then the other says, “No, I love you more” and we would go back and forth, back and forth. Finally we decided that on Sun, Tues, Thurs I would love her more, on Mon, Wed, Fri she would love me more and on Sat we would love each other the same. So, I would have to give this book to her, as it would be so special for the both of us.

    Thanks for the chance and good luck to everyone participating!

  26. I would have to keep this book for myself. Well, actually it will be for all the kids to share. I am rebuilding a children’s library for my little one and I love all the “I love you…” type books!!

  27. This book looks so cute – my sons and I actually play the game “I love you more” and we try to outdo each other by saying how much more one of us loves the others!
    My boys would of course get the book!


  28. I would give this book to my friend for her son, who was born in August with neuroblastoma and is now fighting his way through chemo.

  29. I am telling you I woul love to win this book, I have a hard time with people whoo don’t understand why I wanted my son, knowing all I knew before hand. there were other options, but never will I regret my son. He is a blessing and heritage from the Lord. No matter wha, I will always love him unconditionally.
