I Love You More

Recently I was sent an advanced copy of I Love You More by Laura Duksta

Sourcebooks Inc.’s description of the book reads:

Were you ever told, “You know I love you?” Or have you ever felt that you did not tell someone you loved them enough? Reach out and embrace I Love You More, a timeless gift you will share again and again.

Too often love is assumed and not spoken. Love should be seen, heard, felt, sensed, shown, expressed, talked about—and more! Reading I Love You More will become a game, a conversation of love, that people, especially parents and children, can share for years.

This cleverly conceived flip story, which ends in the middle and starts from either side, will show you what love looks like from both a child and a parent’s perspective. With a simple, touching story, rhyme and rhythm, and vibrant child-like illustrations, this book will be treasured by anyone who has ever said “I love you” and heard the best response in the  world: “I LOVE YOU MORE.”

I learned more about the author and the illustrator at the site as well:

Author Laura Duksta believes that when people know they are loved, anything is possible. Laura lost all of her hair to Alopecia Areata at the age of 11. It took her many years to love herself and to allow others to love her. Laura knew from a young age that she was meant to travel the world, meet her brothers and sisters and spread the message of love. She is now fulfilling this mission through her book, school programs and inspirational talks. Laura resides in Fort Lauderdale, FL.

Karen Keesler earned the nickname “Hippie” from her love for people and the planet. She loves all things that connect her to nature including surfing, gardening, yoga and meditation. Karen is a professional photographer and illustrator, capturing the world’s magic and love through her pictures. She is committed to bringing programs into schools and the community that support the environment and the arts. Karen lives in South Florida with her beloved Ferny, dog Chloe and loving family.
