(Age: 3-6) Recommended. Written by award winning Chinese author Xiao Mao, I love you sees Little Badger's teacher sharing her favourite words with the class. At the end of the day, Little Badger goes home to practise saying three special words - I LOVE YOU!
I love you explores multicultural languages, school environments and family relationships accompanied with neutral coloured but wonderful illustrations. Xiao Mao's text sees how much Little Badger appreciated the small things in life by simply saying 'I love you' in a number of languages.
Overall, I love you is a fantastic resource for families and teachers with the focus on learning new things, love, families and multiculturalism.
