***Our Review***

What We Loved:

There’s so much to love in all of Amy’s books, but this one really got us in the feels. Meg’s husband is deploying in the not too distant future and she’s already got plans to make sure he records himself reading this for the boys to listen to while he’s gone. It perfectly summarizes a parent’s love for their kids, both in words and in pictures.

***Mini Swoons Review***

Review by Matteo, Age 5

I liked this one. The best page was the one about “That’s me bugging you!” I liked the pictures too, but that page was so funny! “Can I take this one to bed?” (The answer was yes!)

***Mini Swoons Review***

Review by Luca, Age 8

I totally get it. It’s like everywhere we are you are loving us. Like everything is you loving us. I really liked the pictures. One of the kids looks just like Mattie! I like it!
