I Love You, Stinky Face

A vividly illustrated bedtime story that shows how the unconditional love of a mother can be tested through the relentless questions of her little boy.

"But Mama, but Mama, what if I were a super smelly skunk, and I smelled so bad that my name was Stinky Face?"

Mothers love their children and this unconditional love is truly tested in I LOVE YOU, STINKY FACE. Lisa McCourt and Cyd Moore beautifully weave a reassuring tale of the love and affection of a parent. The imaginative son turns himself into a meat-eating dinosaur, a swamp creature and much, much more before being satisfied with the fact that no matter how stinky he is or how slimy of a creature he could possibly be, he is loved and nothing will change that.

It's a game, I'm sure, all little kids play with their parents: to determine the limits of a parent's love. "Would you still love me if I was a crocodile?" 'Would you still love me if I had two heads?" "Would you still love me if I was a Tea Party Republican?"

The outcome of the game, of course, i... ...more

This book would be ideal for preschool and kindergarteners. Our textbook talks about how, at that age, children need a lot of reassurance and security regarding their parents love, and this book does just that. It's about a little boy who is being tucked into bed, and he asks his mom if she would... ...more
