From School Library Journal
PreSchool-Grade 2–An African-American mother describes the many ways that she expresses her love to her son throughout the day. From the rising of the sun until the moon comes out, her feelings are revealed through routine tasks, such as helping the boy get dressed and clean his room, sending him off to school, and spending time with him at the park. After dinner, she cuddles the youngster and reads him a story, reassuring him that he is safe and cherished. Just as the book opens, it ends with the mother praying, hoping that "…in all I've done and was moved to say,/I've done my best in telling you, child,/that 'I love you' every day." The vibrant oil paintings assist in capturing the playful, affectionate relationship between mother and child. Set against bright background scenes, the characters take center stage in each appealing spread. This is a useful book for family storytimes because it offers adults a pattern for building good parenting skills.–Tracy Bell, Durham Public Schools, NC
