I Love You Night and Day 
by Smriti Prasadam-Halls
illustrated by Alison Brown
Bloomsbury, 2014. picture book

Every child needs an affirmation of love from their parent or caregiver.  This simple rhyming picture book assures a child that they are loved in many different ways and in different situations. "I love you huge, I love you vast,/For the fun to come and the fun that's passed." Brown's acrylic and pastel illustrations show a stylized bear and rabbit enjoying a variety of activities together.  The gentle pictures done in rich colors reinforce the supportive message of the text. This is a great story for bedtime or any time a child needs to feel loved.
