All the Ways I Love You
January 7th, 2011
One of the most special presents that Miss Mouse received this Christmas was a book from her Nana and Papu called All the Ways I Love You. It’s a sweet story with lovely illustrations of a bear cub and her mama (or grandma, or grandpa!), who recounts the various flavors of her love.
The final stanza reads:
“I love you round and round the world. I love you through and through. And when it seems impossible to love you more…I do.”
What makes this book (among the zillions we have!) so very wonderful is that it’s a recordable book. As Miss Mouse turns the pages, my parents’ voices read her the story.
The first time through, she was a bit confused, I think, because my folks were sitting right next to her. But now that they have returned to Chicago, she glows as she pages through it.
