Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS–This is a sweet book, good for a lap-time cuddle. It reads as an affirmation that the child will be loved, from top to bottom, when happy or sad. The text also introduces opposites as in "I love you.../silent/and talking." There's no real story here, simply comfort in the rhythm and rhyme of the words as they build to the satisfying conclusion: "I love you/through and through…/yesterday, today,/and tomorrow, too." The book is printed on stiff pages, good for toddlers to flip through or to withstand a baby's drool. Dynamic illustrations feature the child and his sidekick teddy bear. As a team they act out the text in ways that are informative, inventive, and humorous. The colored pages are subtly patterned, providing a decorative yet unobtrusive backdrop to the simple and focused drawings. Basic, low-key, eye-catching, and smooth.–Martha Topol, Traverse Area District Library, Traverse City, MI

More About the Author

Bernadette Rossetti Shustak/Bio
In July of 1999, the author spent two weeks in New Jersey with her two children, husband, sisters-in-law, and six nieces and nephew. They had all been brought together by the death of Rossetti-Shustak's father-in-law. During that time she had conversations with her children and their cousins about how their grandfather always made each of them feel as if they were "the favorite" grandchild and "the most loved." Those conversations evolved into this book.

"To me, "I Love You Through and Through" is about unconditional love and total acceptance. I think it is very important for children to be assured of their parents love and support. You can never say, "I love you" too many times." On another level, the book teaches opposites and rhyming. The illustrations, by Caroline Jayne Church, pull the message and lessons of the book together.

It took almost four years from start to finish for "I Love You Through and Through" to come to fruition. A copy of the manuscript was sent to 15 literary agencies in New York. Within 5 months all had responded with a "no thank you," except for Dystel & Godrich Literary Management. After signing with them, three major publishers were interested, but in November 2003, contracts were negotiated and Scholastic Books bought the rights. Almost one year later, announcement of publication and a release date for "I Love You Through and Through" was made.

Bernadette Rossetti-Shustak is a former newspaper editor and journalist. She has worked for Housatonic Publications as co-editor of the Pawling News Chronicle, Pawling, NY, and Associate Editor for the weekly newspaper The Kent Good Times Dispatch, Kent, CT, Housatonic Home, and Business Digest magazines.

In 1995 she was the recipient of a New York Press Association's first place award for her humorous newspaper columns. She has written articles on numerous subjects for websites, and is a freelance writer and editor. In 2006 Rossetti-Shustak was awarded an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Award for "I Love You Through and Through".

Currently she is an administrator at a private day school. She and her husband, Mike, have two grown children. They live with their three cats, in upstate New York.

Not sure why [...] has this one listed in the 4 - 8 years old category as this one is clearly aimed at pre-schoolers and toddlers. It's just a beautifully written and illustrated book. A toddlers love from head to toe, teddy bear in hand. The illustrations magically capture the expression of this little boy. A loving book! And a great gift idea for kids or grandparents with Valentine's Day right around the corner. A sure to be classic!

With short and simple text to go with very cute illustrations of a child, this is an excellent book to read to your young child.

We have an 11-month old, and we've had this book for about 3 months. What makes it so much fun is that the book can be used not only as a reading tool, but the words allow you to physically interact with your child. When I talk about her "top side," she'll give me her head to rub, and laugh when I do so. Same with her bottom side - and with the "inside," she'll even open her mouth so I can stick my finger inside.

I find that great books for really young children are difficult to find, so this has been a real treat. I'd recommend it highly.

Adorable

This book is absolutely adorable for toddlers and preschoolers, though my seven year old came across it on my desk and thoroughly enjoyed reading it too! It is straight forward and a great feel good book, reinforcing to kids that their parents love all of them, no matter what!

We absolutely love this book.

It's been our son's favorite since he was about 9 months old. The pictures are beautiful, colorful, and simple. Not boring, not crowded, just what it should be. The text is sweet and simple, the rhymes are thoughtful and not dumb (you know those books!), and the sentences are short enough to hold a baby's attention so we have time to get all the words out before he turns the page.

The one downside is that this book is really cheaply made. The cover is nice and padded, but the pages are cheap. The pages are thinner than other board book pages, but the bigger problem is the actual surface of the pages. Our son - an impressive drooler and finger-sucker - loves to turn the pages himself with his drool-y fingers and sometimes kiss the pages too. What I didn't learn until too late is that you can't do that with this book. For our other board books, you can get some drool on them and it just makes the pages stick together a little bit but that's it. For this book, drool made the pages stick together so much that when you separated them later, the paper tore. (See my pics in the photo gallery for examples) I'm thinking that we can't be the only parents with a drooly baby, right??

Quality notwithstanding, this is as quality a baby's book as they come. I love this book through and through.

I bought this book for my 2 years old daughter. Whenever I read this book to her, she will follow what the child does in the book. When I read 'I love your topside', she shows me her topside, 'I love your bottomside', she shows me her bottomside, and we have good laugh together until I finish the whole book. The illustrations are so cute that even I enjoy reading it. Simply wonderful book! Highly recommended.

This is a great book ... wonderful message, cute pictures and not a lot of writing per page so it's perfect for my one-year old. My two year old also likes it, mainly b/c of the great pictures and the fact that the little boy has a bear in every picture. You can't go wrong with this book!

I love the simple rhymes and the adorable illustrations in this book. My 17 month old son loves looking at the pictures (there is one with a huge face on it that he loves to kiss). The story is just the right length for toddlers--I have just enough time to finish the text on each page before he wants to move on.

The only complaints I have with this book are in its construction. The cover is not the thick cardboard that I'm used to with standard board books. Instead, it is a padded polyurethane material. It's definitely thick and it has a glossy surface that might withstand teething better than a traditional "board" book, but I'm not a big fan of it. Also, the pages aren't cardboard either. They are definitely thicker than standard pages, but they are much thinner than what I expected (more comparable to the thickness/density of the covers of early reader books). The book is also larger than most of the board books I'm used to, and that size makes it a little harder for my little guy to turn the pages easily.

All said, though, I would purchase this again because the story and illustrations are cute and fun and my little boy loves them!
