Little Phoebe and her fuzzy friend highly recommend 'Cause I Love You!

SOME REVIEWS


“Carr’s homey rhymes don’t feel overly conventional, thanks to lots of hyphenated phrases and dropped g’s, and she establishes a bouncy, staccato rhythm from the get-go… It’s a cozy reminder of kids’ central place in their parents’ hearts and minds.” – Publishers Weekly

'CAUSE I LOVE YOU

by JAN CARR

Illustrated by Daniel Howarth

Hey, everybody! This is my new book!

You're my little bundle bear.
Snap up, wrap up wooly wear.
We go here, there, everywhere
'Cause I love you!

Mama Bear and Little Bear go about their day – they shop, play in the park, race home, eat, and suds up in the tub. “You’re my little bundle bear,” says Mama. Why? “‘Cause I Love You!”

WHY I WROTE THIS BOOK


I wanted to capture the closeness and pleasure of a toddler and mom or other loved one spending a day together. Flying high on a swing, licking a spoon, stacking cans in a grocery cart -- these experiences loom large in the life of a young child. Little ones and those who love and care for them share these pleasures every day, and I wanted to celebrate them.
