I love this story premise...children often wonder if we still love them when they are being "naughty" or when they are sick, or when they make bad choices...this books lets them realize that although we may not like the choices that they make, we love them regardless!! My children ages 3 and 5 loved the story and it teaches children about unconditional positive regard. I have two of her other books as well- Hooray for You and The Gifts of Being Grand (my children gave that one to their grandma, when we went to visit). I use the Hooray for You when working with kids who have self-esteem problems...I Love You So came with a coupon booklet to reinforce the good choices that children make! The whole package is just WOW!!!!!!!!!

I purchased this book for my ailing mother for Christmas, (I am 28). There is a part in the book that states, "Do you love me even if I am sick and not well?" That statement said exactly how I felt about my mom. I took care of her, but loved her so unconditionally that nothing would ever change that. My mother passed away 3 weeks ago on 2-1-09, and I read this book at the vigil service. "I Love You So", said exactly how I feel, and it made my mother's passing a little easier being able to express the emotions that I had inside. I know that this is a "children's" book, but it brought a room full of grown adults to tears.

WHEN MY FIRST GRANDAUGHTER WAS BORN 14 YEARS AGO, THE FIRST THING ON MY AGENDA WAS TO SHOW HER UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. WHEN SHE BEGAN WALKING AND TALKING WE WOULD LAY ON THE FLOOR OR THE GRASS AND I WOULD POINT OUT TO HER THE BEAUTY OF THE STARS AND TELL HER THAT I LOVED HER 'AS FAR AS THE EARTH IS FROM THOSE BEAUTIFUL STARS' OR I LOVED HER AS FAR AS THE 'EAST IS FROM THE WEST' AND THAT NOTHING WOULD EVER CHANGE MY LOVE FOR HER.

I WAS BROWSING THROUGH A BOOK STORE A YEAR AGO AND RAN ACROSS

'I LOVE YOU SO...', I COULD NOT PURCHASE IT AT THAT TIME BECAUSE I WAS SOBBING IN SHEER WONDERMENT THAT THERE WERE MY EXACT FEELINGS FOR HER AGAIN, IN WORDS. SO OF COURSE, I HAD TO GO BACK AND PURCHASE THIS BOOK FOR HER! IT IS A BEAUTFIUL BOOK, DELIGHTFULLY WRITTEN WITH BEAUTIFUL PICTURES ABOUT UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. SINCE THEN, I HAVE PURCHASED TWO OF MARIANNE RICHMONDS OTHER BOOKS AS MY SECOND DAUGHTER JUST FOUND OUT SHE IS EXPECTING. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK.

This is a very special book with a great message; even when you do something I don't like, I'll still love you so... My 3 year old Granddaughter thinks this is the best book ever! A delightful addition to a child's library.

My sister -- a first grade teacher -- gave me this book for my first Mother's Day when my daughter was 3 months old. It has such beautiful, colorful illustrations -- my daughter has been cooing and smiling at this book since the first time I read it to her. And, as the others have written, it has such a great message, told in such a sweet, rhythmic way -- I well up almost every time I read it to her. I just ordered several more of Marianne Richmond's books because I'm so happy with this one. Buy this book for your child and/or give it to others for their new baby -- it'll be treasured more than any baby clothes they receive. I have over 70 books for my 5-month-old daughter (books are very important to us), and this is, by far, my favorite.

I purchased this book because it reads great for our biological daughter as well as our adopted son. Quotes such as, "when you and I met" are perfect for whether you gave birth to your child or adopted. Also, as with other reviews it shows you love your kids regardless of their actions at times.

Format: Hardcover
This delightful book celebrates unconditional love expressed in many forms. The beautiful cover begs the reader to peek inside where the smile-producing paintings and easy to read text bounce off the pages. Ideal for snuggle-up, lap-time reading, this charming story will inspire parents and kids to talk about their own feelings. It helps children realize their unique value and the width and breadth of their parents' love. This enchanting book is not only captivating for kids, it made me want to hug someone!

This is her best book! It is our bedtime book that I read to my 14 month old every night. He loves the pictures, and it is such a sweet message. It also has nice rhythm so I don't mind reading it over and over and over. It is a relaxing and reassuring message, that I am sure he will appreciate as he gets older. It is my favorite book to give as a gift. I recommend it to everyone!

More About the Author

Marianne Richmond -- writer, artist and inspirationalist -- has touched the lives of millions over the past decade through her award-winning books that put feelings into words and help you connect with the people + moments that matter.

For two decades, Marianne ran her own publishing company, winding down in 2010 to make way for a partnership with Sourcebooks, Inc., one of the leading and largest independent publishers in North America. Since then, she has s traveled the country, reading to and speaking with thousands of children about finding their own voice through the written word. Says Richmond, "I share my story of growing up with seizures and encourage kids and grownups to celebrate their individuality." Though Publisher's Weekly calls her "an author on the rise," Richmond's favorite letter is from an elementary school teacher who said, "I feel like a better me after reading your books."

Marianne lives in Minneapolis, MN with her husband, four kids, and their beloved Border Collie, Otis. Favorite things include coffee, hiking, reading memoirs, digital scrapbooking, sleeping, watching sappy movies, going on vacation, hanging out with girlfriends, eating ice cream after the kids are sleeping, and simply creating something from nothing.
