Description

How much do I love you?

 

I love you more than cones love ice cream

This gorgeous, playful book opens up infinite possibilities for saying I love you that carry on long after closing the book. Follow along as young Des’s day winds him through his busy, diverse neighbourhood, highlighting different relationships across age, gender and race, and moments bound together by love.

Through Emil Sher’s delightful word play and acclaimed illustrator Barbara Reid’s vibrant modelling clay art, I Love You More creates a rich experience for young readers and brings a wonderful affirming feeling to storytime.

This story was inspired by a favourite game the author played with his now-grown daughters — one readers can carry on in their own way, with their own loved ones and in their own hearts.
