Must Read Monday: I Love You, Stinky Face

You know the classic’s: Love You Forever and Guess How Much I Love You, but I Love You, Stinky Face is my kind of book. If you have a son you need to get this book. As his mom is tucking him in he asks her if she’d still love him if he were a skunk, a monster, an alligator, etc. Such a sweet, meaningful book if you have a stinky, messy, lovable son like me. description:

A vividly illustrated bedtime story that shows how the unconditional love of a
mother can be tested through the relentless questions of her little

“But Mama, but Mama, what if I were a super smelly skunk, and I
smelled so bad that my name was Stinky Face?”

Mothers love their
children and this unconditional love is truly tested in I LOVE YOU, STINKY FACE.
Lisa McCourt and Cyd Moore beautifully weave a reassuring tale of the love and
affection of a parent. The imaginative son turns himself into a meat-eating
dinosaur, a swamp creature and much, much more before being satisfied with the
fact that no matter how stinky he is or how slimy of a creature he could
possibly be, he is loved and nothing will change that.
