My little boy is growing up so fast. I’m not sure where the time went, but soon he will be in kindergarten. I find myself treasuring the mother and son quiet little moments with him more and more, while attempting to absorb the sweetness and hoarding the experience into my memory cells.

Like a lot of parents, a special time for us is at bedtime, or when we first wake up in the morning. Sometimes we’ll lie next to each other and take turns telling each other how much we love each other, while trying to one-up each other in the process. It’s a silly little game, but I love it!

     “I love you more than the ocean!”

     “Well, I love you more than the moon!”

     “And I love you more than all the stars in the sky!”

Like all my books, this one is about love. Now that Liam is a little older, he’s more expressive with his words and more curious about the world. For his fifth birthday I wanted to celebrate this stage of his life and commemorate our favorite quiet time game “I love you more.” Throughout this story I’ve taken interesting bits of measurable information and compared them to my love. As always, Liam’s influence and ideas are everywhere. Colorful illustrations and cuddly critters help tell the tale and support additional learning opportunities. Even as the story reaches very large figures, there is still no match to the greatness of my love, leaving the final conclusion: “I love you more than that.”

Look for hidden treasures in this book. The porcupine was a special request from my nephew Jayden, Mr. Bunnyman makes an appearance, and Liam’s request for a polar bear, a long beard, and a tongue are granted.

That's a plethora of pokey things

and I love you

More than that!
