But Mama, but Mama, what if I were a super smelly skunk, and I smelled so bad that my name was Stinky Face?"Mothers love their children and this unconditional love is truly tested in I LOVE YOU, STINKY FACE. Lisa McCourt and Cyd Moore beautifully weave a reassuring tale of the love and affection of a parent. The imaginative son turns himself into a meat-eating dinosaur, a swamp creature and much, much more before being satisfied with the fact that no matter how stinky he is or how slimy of a creature he could possibly be, he is loved and nothing will change that.
I normally don't review children's books but I think I am going to start. I won't be often enough as I do all the other genres. I do read with my son and the books my son really takes attention to are the books I plan to review.
I Love You Stinky Face was given to my son as a gift. It's kind of a cute story. I call my niece Stinky Butt. I even have a little song to go with it. It never was out of negativity and she actually wants me to call her that. BTW she is 9. Anyhoo so they gave me the book because I use stinky in a lot of my nicknames. haha weird.
This book can express what unconditional love a mother has for their children. It has a whimsy touch but it's not girlie. The fun silly questions in the book are fabulous. The answers are endearing. It's an all around fantastic book. The illustrations are (if you can believe it) absolutely perfect. I doubt I could find a better suited book for my son. I have been racking my brain on how to decorate his room. Because I love this book so much I plan on basing it off of I Love You Stinky Face.
The picture of the book does not do the book justice. The book is so bright and vibrant.
She does have a type of Stinky Face series. Yes, I plan on running out and buying them.
