Guess How Much I Love You Author:Sam McBratney, Anita Jeram (Illustrator) Guess how much kids will love this! The original family classic is now available in a fresh new hardcover featuring embossing on the cover — and a new, larger trim size, making it perfect for lap sharing.
I'm one of the people who reads this story and cringes - it is a story about making love into a competition which the child can never win.
There are over a dozen reviewers over at Amazon who also had this reaction to the book - while, as evidenced here, there are many more who love the book.
I'm always surprised that people don't have more empathy for the child in the story - and feel his defeat as he becomes exhausted trying to tell his parent how much he loves them, never to have the sentiment accepted - only outdone.
I honestly can't imagine a way in which this would be a positive story.
