Sometimes all we need is love. It will set us right and banish the loneliness we feel in our everyday lives. As I grow older, I've been reading many children's books and chapter books. I'm not entirely sure why this is - maybe it's nostalgia, maybe not. Regardless, I've found that despite their short length most children's books and chapter books are moving. This is another one of those books. The colors are vibrant and the characters' warm brown eyes are full of life. The story follows a single mother and her daughter. The mother is the narrator and talks about how the three simple words, "I love you," are enough to get her through everything. She sees her daughter as her source of strength and even goes as far as to call her daughter a superhero. Even though There's Something About “I Love You” by Chelsea Williams is meant for children, the emotional depth within its pages is evident. Adults, especially parents, will be able to appreciate it. Just before the last page, as the mother tucks her daughter in, she looks out at the moon and reflects: "When you say, 'I love you, Mom!' it makes my heart take flight. It helps me overcome the dark that wants to snuff out the light." That little tidbit had me in tears. Whether you are a mother or a father, there are moments when life feels impossible, but then you remember you're not alone in this life anymore. You've got your kid or kids. They love you and depend on you for almost everything. As a mom myself, I can confidently say that this little book is now a personal favorite.
