Reassure children that they are loved and loveable with words of affirmation for kids.

I Love You All the Time


Available February 2022. I Love You All the Time speaks to the power of caregivers’ steady love to help children develop confidence, resilience, and emotional agility with words of affirmation for kids.

Parents and teachers want strategies for helping preschoolers manage their emotions. But to effectively teach emotional self-regulation strategies, children first need to know they are safe and loved—all the time. Even when they lose their temper, even when they stay up too late, or lose their shoes, or yell at their friend. The steady love of a caregiver can help children thrive, even when life is challenging.

Written from the perspective of a caring adult speaking to a child, I Love You All the Time strengthens relationships by addressing the common childhood fear: Am I loved all the time? Its charming rhyme, words of affirmation for kids, and heartwarming message make the book perfect for storytime, home, the preschool classroom, and whenever children need a reminder that they’re loved.

Praise for I Love You All the Time

“An ideal pick for putting little ones to bed.”—Foreword Reviews

“A comforting book about the power of unconditional love that’s instructive for caregivers and young readers alike.”—Kirkus Reviews 

“A young child experiences the ups and downs of everyday life while hearing the soothing refrain ‘I love you all the time’ from his caregivers. The warm watercolor and pencil illustrations add even more comfort to the sweet and lilting rhythm of the story.”—School Library Journal  

I Love You All the Time helps parents and caregivers communicate the one message children most need to hear: that they are loved unconditionally. Playful rhymes, engaging illustrations, and a wise ‘Letter to Caregivers’ make this book a gift to children and adults alike. I could not recommend it more.”—Lisa Damour, Ph.D., author of Untangled and Under Pressure
