Book Review/Giveaway: Have I Told You Today How Much I Love You? Ends March 21st


Have I Told You Today How Much I Love You? By Cheryl Sturm

“Have I Told You Today How Much I Love You?” is one way to express love–beyond an inch, foot, yard, mile, the moon, stars, and Mars–to anyone dear to you. It was written as a bedtime story. But given that it teaches children some fun facts about measurements while reinforcing how much you love them, this book is an ANYtime story. Parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, godparents, and friends can buy this book as a gift and enjoy telling the children in their lives how much they are loved. The author wrote the book for her four nieces and nephews. When asked “Do I love you this much?”, the youngest, who is almost four years old, delights in answering, “Not just this much.” He starts saying it with his two index fingers an inch apart, and he enjoys repeating the phrase with his hands one foot apart and again with his arm stretched as far as they’ll go. Then he starts again. On occasion, his grandfather has joined in. It’s a fun, quick read with both basic and profound lessons.

Pages: 46

Cost: $9.26 on amazon

My Review: Kids will enjoy reading this book as it’s not only fun but educational as well. The illustrations are bold and colorful. Although, it shows how much we can be loved by our love ones, it also teaches children about measurements. The author shows in the first few pages how things are measured in inches, like a quarter, macaroni, strawberry, and hammer.

The incremental measurements start to expand from the size of a quarter, hotdog, golf putter and even the moon. We can love far beyond the planets but guess what?

So do you love an inch or lot more than an inch? As we read on we find out in the book that love is immeasurable and that love has no limit. I highly recommend this book for classroom teaching.

  2. I think my daughter mentioned this book. Right off the cover grabs you due to how colorful it is. I love books that tech as well as entertain. Thanks for the post… love the story about the Author’s nephew explaining how much he loves using his hands.🙂

  3. Books that are fun, educational, and have nice illustrations are great! We are learning all about measuring in 2nd grade right now, so this book would be wonderful for my son to read.
