I Like You :: Children's Book Feature :: & Giveaway

Written by Sandol Stoddard Warburg and illustrated by Jacqueline Chwast in 1963. This simply illustrated and adorably written book captured my adoration a few years back while browsing through the children's section. Since then it has become my favorite children's book (possibly my favorite book) and copies of it have been found in many of the hands of people I like. I chuckle every time I read it through (which is once or twice a day as it is Lus' favorite book too) and am always impressed with how a silly little children's book can say just what "i like you" really means.

I've included some of my favorite line from the book. Scroll down and enter to win a copy!
I like you
And I know why
I like you because you are a good person
To like
When i think something is important
you think it's important too
We have good ideas

When i say something funny
You laugh
I think I'm funny and
You think I'm funny too

I can't remember when I didn't like you
It must have been lonesome then

If I pretend I am drowning
You pretend you are saving me
If I'm getting ready to pop a paper bag
Then you are getting ready to jump

That's because
You really like me

You really like me
Don't you

And I really like you back
And you like me back
And I like you back

And that's the way we keep going
