Let Littles Know How Much You Love Them With This Heartfelt Book

Read next


It probably goes without saying that a parent’s love for their child is unconditional. It’s filled with comfort, affection, support and all the other warm and fuzzy feelings that come from creating a little miracle. Yet, love is also so difficult to describe and measure.

In I Love You Like Yellow, New York Times bestselling author Andrea Beaty brings the indescribable emotion to life for parents everywhere. Through rhyming and poetic text, the heartwarming picture book highlights the forms that love can take in everyday moments—no matter how big or small.

Written for parents with young children, I Love You Like Yellow touches upon both the many moments that a parent and child can share—from the important and minor to the uplifting and sad. Alongside charming illustrations from acclaimed illustrator Vashti Harrison, the book further showcases how simple moments that come about each day help describe what love is. 

“‘All the love in the universe rests in such moments. In the warmth of someone’s hand. The splash of a puddle. The glow of a boot. Shiny. Smooth. Yellow,’” Beaty recites. “I wrote this simple poem to explore where love resides. Vashti brought it to life in a way that melts and mends my heart in every scene.”

Harrison’s vibrant and heartfelt illustrations captures the small yet beautiful moments between moms and dads and their kiddos, such as sharing a glass of sweet yet tart lemonade on a hot day or playing a game of cards together during a rainstorm.

I Love You Like Yellow is a tribute to all of those small but special moments we share with the people we care about: an afternoon, an evening, a snack, a secret,” explains Harrison. “They may be simple, but they are meaningful.”

The playful read is a wonderful book to prepare your little one for a good night’s rest and can also make a wonderful baby shower gift for a loved one.
