How Far Do You Love Me

How Far Do You Love Me
by Lulu Delacre

Stemming from a game the author used to play with her daughters, the book takes us on a journey around the world answering the question, "How far do you love me?"

From glaciers of Antarctica to the Grand Canyon, Kangaroo Reef Australia to the Machu Picchu, the lavender fields of Provence to Mekong river in Vietnam, Ladakh in India to Sinai Peninsula we are treated to breath-taking visuals of the beauty of the world around us, and even beyond our planet, while answering the question in the title.

Books by author-illustrators have that perfect connection between visuals and text. The double-page spread of soft pastels of the grand places on earth combined with simple text makes this a wonderful bedtime read. 

Each spread shows an adult and child, presumably parent/child, in the various places, affirming the reader that children all over the world are loved and cared for.
