More and More by Emma Dodd

Yay! It's still Tuesday and that means that it's still my Toddler Book Talk day. If you're not a lover of books I think that I'm going to convert you. Reading books to your children can have so much positive influence. Not only are you spending some special time with your kids that they will remember for years to come but it also helps with vocabulary. Trust me I know. I think if it wasn't for my love of books, my vocabulary wouldn't be what it is today. While I may not be able to pronounce certain words, my understanding of words will astound you. Today I want to share with you a book that I was sent and just absolutely love and guess what? It's all about love. It's More and More written and illustrated by Emma Dodd.

This is my first book from Emma Dodd and I can tell you that this will not be my last. I think I've found my next best author of children books.  Here's a little about Emma:

"Emma Dodd has created many books to critical acclaim. She works from a studio in Surrey, England. When not working, Emma and her family spend as much time as they can surfing and walking in all weather."

Now you may be wondering what has made me love Emma's work so much after reading just one book. Well first let me tell you about the book and then I'll tell what has made me love her work.

More and More tells the story about a baby monkey that finds out that his parents loves him no matter what he does, and every little part of him. Kind of like me and my mommy. Even when I'm naughty, mommy still loves me.

Here's a tiny excerpt:
I love your tumbles, jumps, and bumps,
your fidgets and your wiggles.
I love your smile, I love your frowns,
your whispers and your giggles. 

The illustrations are beautiful in this book and I had to show you this page although there are quite a few pages like this. They are illustrated with a gold foil giving it a stunning look. Mommy's camera didn't do that page justice at all. You have to purchase it to see it for yourself.

With beautiful colorful illustrations that your little ones would love and a really fun story that they will enjoy, your little ones are going to love this book. They will sit in awe while you read and they pour over the illustrations. It's a book that your little one will want to have read to them while they're going to bed. After all who doesn't like hearing that they're loved more and more?

This will make a great addition to your little one's library and is perfect for bedtime. Add it to your night time routine and tell your little ones that you love them more and more. This book gets my TWO TINY THUMBS UP!
