Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A companion to this author-illustrator team's previous effort, I Love You as Much..., which focused on motherly love, this cuddly picture book instead celebrates the relationship between fathers and their children. Each spread features stirring images of a papa and baby animal pair in their natural habitat, and a couplet of verse containing words of wisdom spoken by the elder, e.g., "Said the father panda to his child, 'Someday you'll snuggle your own cub and dream.' " The cozy and warm-toned oil portraits of a father lion licking his cub, awash in golden sunlight, and of a majestic eagle watching over his chick in their lofty mountain nest, are the perfect pairing for the text's gentle rhythm and rhyme scheme. Though certain to tug especially at parents' heartstrings, the reassuring words here will have kids clamoring to share some quiet time reading this book with someone they love. Ages 2-7.

We have the first book, "I Love You as Much..." about a mother and infant My now-sixteen-year-old son loved it as a small child; I couldn't read it to him enough. As I purchased one on Amazon to give to my sister-in-law when she has her baby next month, I saw this book below. Decided to buy it as well, and trust that the author and illustrator did just as great with the sequel. They did; both books are gorgeous and sweet. Now I have a book for each parent when my niece arrives next month. Couldn't be happier.

Friends of ours had a baby after many years of frustrated trying. We bought them "My Love will be With You" for the new father, combined with Melmed and Sorensen's beautiful parallel book for mothers, "I Love You as Much." Our friends got tears in their eyes, and we felt were were able to share in this special moment in a particularly special way. Laura Krauss Melmed is a remarkable, talented writer (see her famous "Rain Babies" and many more prior books), and Sorenson's illustrations capture the spirit of her text sensitively and compellingly. This book is the perfect baby gift.

Just can't begin to describe just how very sweet this book is to read out loud, and I will treasure it as a staple in the library of our family going forward.
