You Are My I Love You is written by Maryann Cusimano Love and illustrated by Satomi Ichikawa both of whom have done many other children's books.
This book beautifully describes the unique relationship that happens between a parent and a child. It is written with unusual expressions that sing to the heart such as
"I am your water wings;
you are my deep.
I am your open arms;
you are my running leap."
The rhyming is not forced, making it easy to read and read again and again.
The pages show an adult teddy bear with a baby bear and we follow them through their day. It is also available as a board book.
