REVIEW: You Belong to Me by Mamoru Suzuki
You Belong to Me is a heartwarming story of the unconditional love that parents (both human as well as parents from the animal kingdom) have for their children. The simple text of love, caring and protection is accompanied by adorable illustrations of animals and dinosaurs that hug, help, and protect a human child. The comforting text is perfect for a soothing bedtime story:
I love you so much.
I care about you the most in the world.
I’m with you in the morning, in the afternoon, and in the evening.
I’ll protect you all the time.
I’ll go anywhere with you.
And so on.
The repetition of the sweet, reassuring messages will calm your child as you lull them to sleep, and will leave a smile on your face and warm your heart as well.
This beautiful book is a perfect gift for parents with a newborn baby.
Yeah, I saw this cover and said I need to read this book. Yes for the charming kitten and little boy but I was also feeling the need for some soothing and reassurance. The illustrations are all as lovely and simple as the cover and I think even young children would easily grasp and understand them. The universal message here is of acceptance and total love, whenever or wherever. A
