I Love You Just Because by Donna Keith Illustrated by Alison Edgson

The third book in this adorable series, I Love You Just Because is the perfect way to show kids that their parents love them just because.


With sales of nearly 75,000 copies for the first two I Love You . . . books, this third addition uses sweet, playful art to depict family dynamics that are grounded in unconditional love.
Through adorable, cuddly art and fun rhyming text, I Love You Just Because will help little ones understand their parents' love for them and that it doesn't have to be earned. With playful artwork and the same friendly bear family you already know and love from Donna Keith's first two books—I Love You All the Same and I Love You Even When—the sweet story of this book will touch you and your family and will remind you that family members love each other...just because.
Parents will gravitate toward the felt need and fun messaging of this book as it seeks to help them explain to their little ones that they are truly loved just because.
My Review:
I Love You Just Because is a board book about a sweet bear family that consists of all kinds of different bears.  The parents in this story tell in sweet rhyme why they love their children so much.  Each page affirms a parent's love for a child and has a corresponding Bible verse.  

The sweet cover is what drew me in to take a chance and review this book. What I did not know was that this book was my story.  Our first three children are through international adoption and this sweet story is what I tried to communicate to them each day when they were toddlers.  Oh, I wish this book had been around with my teens were little.

Reading this to my current four year old I found myself stopping and sharing how special he was to us and how glad I am that he is our son.   We found ourselves gazing at the beautiful and engaging pictures enjoying their wonderful details.   I can highly recommend this book to parents as it is sweet and engaging.  You will read it over and over again joyfully.
