Sort order. Jul 15, Kathryn rated it really liked it Shelves: childrens-picture-books. Sweet story of how a mother's love for her children can be equal but different. Draws forth the qualities that makes each child unique and how the mother loves those aspects "best" in each child, but loves both children with equal strength and attachment. A touching and thoughtful story with a fun, loving and clever mother I thought it was great that she goes fishing with her boys and great for competitive siblings who might wonder who mom or dad loves most!
Nov 15, Connie rated it liked it. I'll admit it. I think this book is a little syrupy. The mother is just too too patient with her ultra-competitive little ones.
P. S. I Love You
All they care about is being the best, and yet, she always manages to have the answer which avoids choosing favorites. Frankly, she sets a standard that's hard to live up to. Neither son is the best rower - one rows deep, the other rows fast. Neither is the best fisherman - one gets more fish, but the other got the smart fish. And so on.

Feb 22, Daniel rated it it was amazing Shelves: childrens-books. This book is destined to be a long-lived classic. The illustrations are wonderful watercolors that would stand alone as beautiful paintings. The story is perfect.
Anyone who has more than one child can understand and appreciate. Since the first time we read this, my wife and I still refer to it when we kiss the children goodnight. Sometimes we use the examples in this book "I love you the bluest" "I love you the redest" and sometimes we make up our own. And on top of all this, there is also a This book is destined to be a long-lived classic. And on top of all this, there is also a nice element of teaching colors Wonderful, wonderful.

I actually snuck-read this book when I was sorting the Scholastic order last night. I loved it! This book displays how a mother can love both her children- who are nothing alike- to the same degree. Her sons are competing for their mothers attention and love during a fishing trip one day, and the mother is able to pull out and focus on their individual strengths and tell them how they are both special in their own way.
One son is much more reserved and focused, and the mother explains how she I actually snuck-read this book when I was sorting the Scholastic order last night. One son is much more reserved and focused, and the mother explains how she loves that about him; while her other son is more impulsive and carefree and she loves him for that as well.
It is a heartwarming story of the unconditional love of a mother for her children. View all 3 comments. Apr 03, Jana rated it it was amazing.
This book is one of the reasons I chose the name Max for my second child. I had a first child who was so easy and calm that I knew my second had to be the opposite. A few years ago a friend of mine found this book and changed all the Julians to Carters so when we read this book it is Carter and Max.

This is a great book to teach imaging and visualizing to students with. The text is extremely descriptive which allows for the mind to paint a picture of what is happening in the story.xn--82ca6apj4cmaa2b6azf4b9b2j7fg.com/includes
