A new book that we have added to our library is from Sterling Publishing, I Love You Near and Far. This is such a cute book and as soon as Broxton saw it, he immediately took it in the car with us for a ride to the store.  We have read it a few different times and I just think it is too cute.
It started off as a cute book that hit home for me, with Marc being in the military.  The miles were once far when he was deployed, but we talked about the love from daddy could go across miles and that is what this book tells. Since daddy is home now, we used this book to talk about how much he loves his family that isn't close in miles, but is super close in our hearts!  We love this book and love reading it and talking about all of our loved ones! 
 

I love you long distance, across all those miles. Sometimes parents divorce. Sometimes mom or dad is sent overseas to fight. And sometimes cherished members of the family—grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins—live too far away to see every day. This sweet rhyming story, written from the child's point of view, is a love letter to those who may not be geographically near—but remain very close at heart.

  1. This would be great for a Valentines gift. Maybe I should get my boys books for that special day. Isaak wouldn't like that very much though. Mr. Non Wanting to Read!
