Spinelli (Thankful) composes a breezy, reassuring ode to the people in children's lives who love them. Her poem moves from family member to family member (
Seasons come and seasons go./ Mama loves you always./ Sometimes rain and sometimes snow./ Mama loves you always), checking fathers, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and even a family friend off the list. Mixing curving ink lines with warm splashes of watercolor and crayon, British illustrator Flint highlights an array of families in bucolic scenes of play: a girl and her mother toss autumn leaves into the air, a father helps his daughter collect fireflies in a jar, and a grandmother reads to two children snuggled under blankets; most of the families are white, though a few have brown skin. Many scenes simply focus on the children playing on their own, a subtle suggestion, perhaps, that although their families are very present, these kids have room to explore and experience things on their own -- support without smothering. Ages 4-7. --Publishers Weekly
Whether singing, dancing, or grumbling on the verge of a tantrum, Eileen Spinelli's Love You Always conveys a message of unconditional love through simple, charmingly melodic verses and lovely pastel-hued vignettes from Gillian Flint. Ideal for reading quietly or sharing aloud, children of all ages will take comfort in knowing that whether they are happy, sad, naughty, or mad, and no matter where they are, what they are doing, or how they are feeling, someone loves them always. --Foreword

I received this book through WorthyKids/Ideas Blo
The illustrations are simple, yet beautiful. The rhymes are so sweet. I love the fact that it lets kids know they more than just mom and dad love them.
My best friend's daughters, ages 6 and 4, both sat down and read the book. Actually reading it. Yes, they needed help sounding out some of the words, but it was simple enough for the girls to read.
I highly recommend this book.
