Booklist Review

PreS. The territory may be familiar, but the execution seems fresh and sweet in this story about father-son love. It begins when Owen, a little pig-child, tells Dad: I love you more than chocolate milk. As children follow along, the duo (Mother's whereabouts aren't mentioned) spend the day in fun activities that inspire them to remind each other how much they care for one another. The text turns into a counting game as well. Dad loves Owen more than four trips down the slide; later Owen loves Dad more than nine bedtime stories. Much of the charm here comes from Burris' close-up art that features a realistic pig-dad--a little overweight, dressed in a flannel shirt, and thoroughly enjoying each moment. Likewise, Owen, dressed like Dad, is clearly thrilled to be with his parent. Burris does a terrific job with facial expressions. She captures the wild exuberance Owen feels as he runs away from six monster tickles, and the beaming pride Dad shows all the time. A particularly reassuring book for children whose dad's aren't part of their daily lives. --Ilene Cooper Copyright 2004 Booklist


School Library Journal Review

PreS-The plump piglet narrator of I Love You All Day Long (HarperCollins, 2002) spends a fun-filled day with his father as the two express their feelings for one another. Owen's attempts to illustrate his love for Daddy are lively, creative, and thoughtful ("I love you more than chocolate milk"). The older pig's replies are warm, comforting, and reassuring ("I love you more than TWO pancakes with bananas on top"). The simple language is entertaining and the similes will be easy for young children to comprehend. The brightly colored, full-spread cartoons are filled with action and affection. They show the appealing characters, both dressed in cozy plaid shirts, playing outdoors, sharing books, and catching fireflies. This charming offering is sure to be a hit with the preschool crowd.-Andrea Tarr, Corona Public Library, CA (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
