I Love You Stinky Face

I Love You Stinky Face, by Lisa McCourt.  Illustrated by Cyd Moore. This one really is for children – young children, but I find it moving in a light, silly way.  It only has two or three hundred words, but asks the eternal question, “Would you still love me if……?”  The format is a child asking its mother questions like, “But Mama, but Mama, what if I were an alligator with big, sharp teeth?”  And  Mama answers, “I’d buy you a bigger toothbrush.”  You get the idea.  It’s very cute, and a great reminder about the importance of unconditional love.
