I Love You the Purplest
by Barbara Joosse and illustrated by Mary Whyte
A Mom's love story to rivaling sons. Each wants to know, "Who do you love best?" Clearly an experienced peacemaker, Mama offers just the right answers. She uses colors to express how, in a way, each one is loved the most. Whyte's (Boomer's Big Day) watercolors amplify the story's considerable emotional pitch. A great bedtime read-aloud.
