I Love You The Purplest Book


Book addresses unconditional love and sibling rivalry in kind and gentle way: Early in the evening two young brothers and their mama finish supper in their red cabin and set out to fish. While digging for worms, rowing the boat, and pulling in fish, each brother asks his mama who is the best at each task, and as they are tucked into bed, which one she loves the best. Readers will delight in the tender message that every child holds a special place in a parent's heart.
