"Small and reminiscent of the emotional feel of The Runaway Bunny, this is an intimate bedtime book with a global theme."-Kirkus Reviews
"A warm portrait of universal parental love. Lyrical responses combine with stunning double-page illustrations."- PBS Reading Rockets
"Soft pastel paintings of places such as the Grand Canyon in Arizona and Cenote Dzitnup in Yucatán, Mexico, along with expressive sentences describing these locales, are used to compare a parent's love to the vastness of the natural world. This topic is similarly explored in many classic picture books such as Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You and Margaret Wise Brown's Runaway Bunny, but the multicultural worldview is unique. A good choice for one-on-one sharing between a parent and child."- School Library Journal
"Using soft pastels and free style poetic language, the author/illustrator has depicted the love of parent/adult and child using examples from all seven continents. The book concludes with a map of the world with each location mentioned pinpointed and an invitation from the author to play this game with a favorite child."--Reading Today Online, International Reading Association
"A peaceful bedtime story"- Children's Literature

'How Far Do You Love Me?' was such a delight to read and I have truly enjoyed sharing it with my family and friends.
I recently ordered 8 copies because the illustrations are shockingly lush with intense color and just gorgeous. The story is appealing, and centers around a game: a child asks, "How far do you love me?" and an adult answers just how far. Every answer is its own small, poetic journey to one of the many beautiful places in the world, whether that's under a tree in Tanzania or on a cliff admiring the magnitude of the Grand Canyon. Every place shows its own loving relationship between parent and child.
Many of my friends and colleagues either have young children or are about to have children and I'm thrilled to have a present I know everyone will enjoy! Buying 8 copies takes a lot of the stress out of baby shower gifts and first birthday parties. So far, I've even gotten some tears as people flip through the pages. I highly recommend this book.
