About the Author

Laura Duksta believes that when people know they are loved, anything is possible. Laura lost all of her hair to Alopecia Areata at the age of 11. It took her many years to love herself and to allow others to love her. Laura knew from a young age that she was meant to travel the world, meet her brothers and sisters and spread the message of love. She is now fulfilling this mission through her book, school programs and inspirational talks. Laura resides in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Karen Keesler earned the nickname "Hippie" from her love for people and the planet. She loves all things that connect her to nature including surfing, gardening, yoga and meditation. Karen is a professional photographer and illustrator, capturing the world's magic and love through her pictures. She is committed to bringing programs into schools and the community that support the environment and the arts. Karen lives in South Florida with her beloved Ferny, dog Chloe and loving family.


A mother tells her son that she loves him "higher than the highest bird ever flew, /...taller than the tallest tree ever grew." The son responds that he loves his mother even more, and by flipping the book over, readers can see how he expresses their relationship: "I love you quieter than the quietest caterpillar ever creeped/...further than the furthest frog ever leaped." The two versions, mother's and son's, meet in the middle, expressed by text circling a globe- "I love you more than anything in the whole wide world"-so that the book's two-in-one format becomes an embodiment of the endless reciprocity of parent-child love. First-time author Kuksta's declarations feel honest and age-appropriate; Mom's words bring to mind classic pop songs, while the boy usually expresses his feelings by comparing them to lollipops, swings and rocket ships. But former photographer Keesler's pastel artwork and "Love is..." characterizations never rise above greeting-card level, offering little reason to choose this book over the many others that share its Runaway Bunny/ Guess How Much I Love You sentiments and construct. Ages 4-up. (Nov.) Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

PreS-Gr 2-Two books in one. Read one way, it is the parent who responds to the child's question, "just how much do you love me?" With the book turned over and read from the back, the mother asks the question of her son. Both answers are given in rhyming couplets as the pair try to prove the depth and strength of their love. Some of the rhymes work well, but others seem forced, e. g., "I love you longer than the longest path ever wound./I love you prettier than the prettiest flower ever found." At the middle, where the two books meet, readers see that the two love one another "more than anything in the whole wide world." The large illustrations are colorful and childlike, but the text trips the tongue. Similar titles, such as Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You (Candlewick, 1995), are more lyrical to read. Consider this one an additional purchase.-Elaine Lesh Morgan, Multnomah County Library, Portland, OR Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.
