Very sweet book about love,
This review is from: Guess How Much I Love You (Hardcover)
I think this book is so sweet about how much a father loves his son. I am amazed at the two one-star reviews, I mean, how cynical can you get? So what if the father declares a greater love for his son (the bunny is sleeping at the time, if that makes you feel better)? It is actual very natural. As for the author's use of "sophisticated words", what word gave you trouble, thornbush or nutbrown?

I always thought that the little one was a boy, and the parent was the mother. I guess because my mom read it to me.

The parent here is clearly a dad. See the pronouns on pages 18, 22, 30, and 32 ("his," "he," "he," and "he" yet again, respectively). The distinction is an important one, since so many children's books focus on only a maternal figure.
