“With lines like 'I am your fishing line, you are my squirmy bait' and 'I am your slow steps, you are my hurry up', the author of You Are My I Love You has written the perfect read-aloud for a grandmother and her grandchild. With charming illustrations by Satoi Ichikawa, they spend the day together, ending with a snuggle on grandma's lap.”
-- Carol Dunn, Northwind Book & Fiber, Spooner, WI


Description

Since its publication in 2001, You Are My I Love You has sold half a million copies worldwide and given voice to the unique love parents feel for their children. Now the creators of this modern classic reunite to honor the special bond between grandparent and grandchild, the one of passing along tradition, joyful spoiling, nurturing imagination, and pure adoration. Whether it?s the sharing of stories or romping horsey rides, silly tickle fights or lazy fishing trips, there?s truly nothing like it.

With touching, heartfelt words and warm, playful illustrations, Maryann Cusimano Love and Satomi Ichikawa shine their spotlight on this unique relationship. AUTHOBIO: Maryann Cusimano Love lives in Tracy?s Landing, Maryland.

Satomi Ichikawa lives in Paris, France.
