Many parents express their gratitude when reading my books to their young kids. It provides a moment to give them such loving words and to tell them how we really care for them every day. As a son or daughter takes moments to find characters in these beautifully illustrator books by Israel Dilean, we too have a moment to let them know inconspicuously they are our everything.
