[Children's Book Review] I Love You, Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt, Illustrated by Cyd Moore

Children's Book Review of I Love You, Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt, Illustrated by Cyd Moore

I Love You, Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt, Illustrated by Cyd Moore is an adorable little book about the unconditional love between a mother and her son.

This one would be a great story to read out loud at bedtime!

Let's dive in!

I Love You, Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt, Illustrated by Cyd Moore


Synopsis:
A vividly illustrated bedtime story that shows how the unconditional love of a mother can be tested through the relentless questions of her little boy.

"But Mama, but Mama, what if I were a super smelly skunk, and I smelled so bad that my name was Stinky Face?"


My thoughts:
My manager recommended this one to me, saying that it was her and her little boy's favorite. I can definitely see why!

This book was so much fun to read, and I can only imagine it would be more fun to read out loud with a kid!

The storyline flowed easily as the little boy asked his mom a bunch of "what if" questions. And of course, she had the best answers to each to help reassure the boy that she would indeed still love him even if he were a stinky skunk or meat-eating dinosaur.

The illustrations were lovely! I really enjoyed the little things in each such as the children in the background of one panel looking on as the boy ate a bug sandwich. And the colors were so bright and fun! Each page was so fun to look at.

My final thoughts:
I would definitely recommend this book! This is another that I will be gifting at birthdays and baby showers in the near future for sure!



Thanks for reading!
