About the Authors: This book was inspired by a nightly game of I love you more between Bailey Thompson and her mom, Kim. Who came up with the best illustrations to show how much she loved the other? Bedtime is filled with hugs, kisses, and laughter as mom and daughter compete to come up with the most unusual I love you more comparison. It’s a sweet way to end the day, Kim notes about their nightly ritual. Bailey Thompson is a third grader who enjoys reading, writing, gymnastics, and snowboarding. This is Bailey’s first published book. Kim Thompson enjoys being a mom to Austin, Morgan, and Bailey and has established herself as a respected educator, author, and music producer. Along with her twin sister, Karen Hilderbrand, Kim has received eight Gold Albums and one Platinum Album from the Record Industry Association of America signifying over 26 million albums.
Reading I Love You More is definitely sweet and easy! Moms and Dads quickly realize just how special night time stories can be when cuddling and snuggling with their little ones.
All in all a padded book and CD rank on the durable side of things. The only caveat we have is that as your kids get a bit older they are going to want to be the ones handling the book and they are going to want to be the ones getting fingerprints and kids gook (we mean handling) the CD.
The illustrations are precious and more than anything appeal to parents well before they appeal to their children. Just lovely.
Well…we are talking about a book and a CD here…not exactly the most functional at early ages. As kids get older they can start to play games with Mom and Dad coming up with their own examples of “I Love You More”.
With a suggested retail price of $9.99 I Love You More isn’t overpriced. Of course we prefer everything to be a little bit less expensive…but all in all a $10 price tag isn’t too high here.
An adorable take on a classic game Moms and Dads often find themselves playing with their little ones. Add in the CD accompaniment and we are happy to call this pretty original.
You can happily add I Love You More to a nighttime ritual with your little one. The story is sweet, the pictures are adorable, and the book gives Mom and Dad more time to cuddle and snuggle with baby. It doesn’t get much better than that!
