You Are My I Love You
I am your parent; you are my child.
I am your quiet place; you are my wild.
I am your favorite book; you are my new lines.
I am your nightlight; you are my starshine.
A day in the life of parent and child--full of smiles and giggles, messes and meals, boundless energy and well-earned rest. Not to mention lots of love. Here, in simple rhyming verse accompanied by colorful, playful illustrations by world-renowed artist Satomi Ichikawa, is one such day. Share it with others and treasure the memories.
