What to Read After... Judy Blume 20/01/20
I Love You
Publisher: Orchard Books
There’s a joyful exuberance running through this celebratory exploration of a child’s world. Whether it’s exploring seaside rock pools; Mum, Dad, Grandpa and Grandma; playing in the garden with friends; or even just eating ice-cream or sausages, this baby delights in experiencing everything around it.
Sidestepping sentimentality, the simple, rhythmic text of this picture book begs to be shared. Bold outlines and bright colours combine in subtle combinations, and there’s a real sense of the child’s perspective, and a feeling of exuberant delight in each new discovery.
