I hope you enjoy these special Little Library books as much as we do. xo

5 Books About Love

Guess How Much I Love You Sam McBratney
The book with the famous line “I love you right up to the moon– and back.” This is a story all about the love between a parent and child, with Little Nutbrown Hare and Big Nutbrown Hare sharing bigger and bigger measures of their love for one another. It is a must have for all first libraries! I read this book to Vienna every night when she was little. It’s also sure to make any Mom with grown children tear up πŸ˜‰

I Love You MoreΒ Laura Duksta
This sweet story shares a parent and a child’s perspective on what love looks like. Full of fun rhyming comparisons, you can read this book from either side (perspective) with its flip-in-the-centre format. Vienna of course loves to flip this book!

I Wish You MoreΒ Amy Krouse Rosenthal & Tom Lichtenheld
A book all about good wishes: wishes for curiosity and wonder, for friendship and strength , for joyous days and quiet moments. It is such a sweet and meaningful story for littles, and great for about age three. We bought this for Vienna’s third birthday and she really loves it!

Little YouΒ Richard Van Camp
A book that celebrates the joys babies bring into the world and the potential of all children. This book has short rhymes and beautiful illustrations. Aria especially loves looking at the pictures of this book.

SomedayΒ Alison McGhee & Peter H. Reynolds
Perhaps the sweetest book I have ever read to my girls. This simple yet beautiful story of motherhood, love, and life fills my heart up every single time I read it. I will read this book to my girls as long as they will let me.

  1. Aw what sweet books! I love giving books as gifts for baby showers rather than toys so I can’t wait to gift these!
