A book about acceptance, love and understanding from a parent to a child.
Although there is never a bad time to read to a child I Love You Just The Way You Are by Ghabeba Hurkchand seems to lend itself well to a bedtime book. It may also be good after a child has done something wrong and has been punished or is just feeling bad as a good way to reassure them.
This book takes readers through a bear family’s day. The parent bear explains what the cub did and tells that cub that it is loved anyway. It starts out with being grumpy in the morning and tired in the afternoon. It even talks about when leaving home for the day becomes too much for some children. The book finally ends with the parent holding the two cubs and telling them “I love you forever”. It is hard to accurately describe this book, but I highly recommend it.
What I liked best is that all children can be difficult at times and the events in this book are extremely accurate. This book is very specific on things such as not understanding why a child did something, yet reassures them that they are loved. There really is not anything I did not like about this book.
Although children can read this book themselves the content feels more geared towards parents reading it to there children. While I recommend this to all parents some have children that are a little more moody than others and would probably benefit from this book the most. No matter what the age every child should hear how much they are loved daily. I give this book a 5 out of 5 ratings. This book is just perfect for reading to children. It touches on very real subjects for children (young) to doubt themselves. The text is also very short and keeps children from getting bored which easily happens.
