Love You More

Susan Musgrave, illus. by Esperança Melo. Orca, $9.95 (24p) ISBN 978-1-4598-0240-7
Musgrave walks readers through the months of the year, connecting a parent’s love for a child to various seasonal occurrences. At times, the rhymes feel overcrowded with words, but there’s no missing the steady, comforting message: “I love you more than the animals being born/ In the tall blowing grasses of a warm June morn.” Melo’s illustrations—acrylic paintings on gessoed paper—have a rich warmth and texture, from the craqueleur of a violet night sky to cozy scenes of around-the-year friendship between a frizzy-haired girl and her fuzzy brown teddy bear. Up to age 3. (Apr.)
