Love You More than Anything

  Author:   Doretta Groenendyk    
  Publisher:  Acorn Press

I love you more than the soft smell of fresh bread baking.
I love you more than riding my bike on a cosy night beneath the moon.
I love you more than a hot bubble bath on a cold winter’s day.
I love you more than the wistful sound of a choir singing a sad song.
I love you more than tiny snowflakes waltzing on lights.

This colourful new picture book by Doretta Groenendyk is filled with whimsical images of love from many different backgrounds. It is about the expression of glee, surprise, intense emotion and delight. It is between friends and neighbors, children or seniors, women and family.

This book crosses cultures and generations, social change and tradition. It exudes warmth and playfulness, sharing whimsical images and sweet memory. The childlike, playful evaluation and understatement of “what is loved more” is immediately addictive.

Each  colourful, whimsical page depicts a different “couple” enjoying the expressed scene together, two  grandparents, two teenagers, a girl and her granny, two boys, a boy and a girl, two men,  young girlfriends, a child and parent, persons of diverse race, religion, size….essentially  love happening between anyone, anywhere. Love You More than Anything is a simple, beautiful book to remember love.
