Love You More than Anything

  Author:   Doretta Groenendyk    
  Publisher:  Acorn Press

I love you more than the soft smell of fresh bread baking.
I love you more than riding my bike on a cosy night beneath the moon.
I love you more than a hot bubble bath on a cold winter’s day.
I love you more than the wistful sound of a choir singing a sad song.
I love you more than tiny snowflakes waltzing on lights.

This colourful new picture book by Doretta Groenendyk is filled with whimsical images of love from many different backgrounds. It is about the expression of glee, surprise, intense emotion and delight.æIt is between friends and neighbors, children or seniors, women and family.

This book crosses cultures and generations, social change and tradition. It exudes warmth and playfulness, sharing whimsical images and sweet memory. The childlike, playful evaluation and understatement of “what is loved more” is immediately addictive.

Eachæ colourful, whimsical page depicts a different “couple” enjoying the expressed scene together, twoæ grandparents, two teenagers, a girl and her granny, two boys, a boy and a girl, two men,æ young girlfriends, a child and parent, persons of diverse race, religion, size….essentiallyæ love happening between anyone, anywhere. Love You More than Anything is a simple, beautiful book to remember love.

    Review :CM Magazine
    "Jasper’s Road is not always an easy read, but it is a worthwhile one that highlights the fact that families do not have to be conventional to work." ~ Aileen Wortley Full review

    "Professor Jon Andrews finds himself enamoured with his new life in ultra-rural Prince Edward Island. He claims to be writing a book about "redemption and romance."  But it turns out he's living that story, not writing it in this heartfelt novel of heartache and happiness." ~ Lesley Choyce, author of Saltwater Chronicles.
