Book Blurb: The third book in this adorable series, I Love You Just Because is the perfect way to show kids that their parents love them just because.
With sales of nearly 75,000 copies for the first two I Love You . . . books, this third addition uses sweet, playful art to depict family dynamics that are grounded in unconditional love.
Through adorable, cuddly art and fun rhyming text, I Love You Just Because will help little ones understand their parents' love for them and that it doesn't have to be earned. With playful artwork and the same friendly bear family you already know and love from Donna Keith's first two books—I Love You All the Same and I Love You Even When—the sweet story of this book will touch you and your family and will remind you that family members love each other...just because.
Parents will gravitate toward the felt need and fun messaging of this book as it seeks to help them explain to their little ones that they are truly loved just because.
REVIEW: This is a precious book you’ll enjoy reading with your kids and/or grandkids over and over again. The pictures are adorable, colorful and fun. The book starts out with the mother bear waking up her cub. It ends with Mother and Father Bear putting them to sleep. The middle illustrates daily activities. The message of unconditional love shines through its beautifully illustrated pages. Each page has a scripture reference to ponder.
The author has several different colored bears throughout the story. Showing no matter who you are or what you look like you are loved. I like how it ends “At bedtime, Panda, Brown and Polar bear hear their Papa say a prayer of thanks to God for all the blessings of the day. He thanks God for the joy each cub brings to this family. And just how special God has made each of their cubs to be.” Scripture for that page is “Children are a gift from the Lord. “ Psalm 127:3
This is a visually beautiful story brought to life with pictures, an encouraging message and uplifting scripture references. It’s a win win for everyone!
