What People Say

This may be my favorite of the “Pickle” series of books! The silly rhymes and the images they conjure, the acknowledgment of the depth of a child’s feelings are beautiful reminders of the unfailing love our heavenly Father, our Creator, has for each of us. Oh, the conversations that will occur after sharing this story are priceless!  He loves us, even coconuts as if we are the only ones in His world! What a gift Coco is for us all! –Becca Edwards, Early Childhood Educator of 47 years 

Using the same humorous analogies and whimsical rhymes that make the other “I Would Love You Even If” books so special, children learn the most powerful lesson of all: You are loved no matter what. In a world that can feel big and overwhelming, love and kindness remain the most basic and important message. This book belongs in the hands of every reader, young and old. —Allison Pozzi, K-2 teacher and early intervention therapist 

Poignant and sweet, this is a story that will resonate with adults and children alike long after they finish it. Adoption is God’s heartbeat and this storyline conveys that in an easy to understand and engaging manner. After reading this book, I think we can all see the world a little brighter with more compassion for each other. As an adoptive mom, it brought tears to my eyes as it celebrates the biggest blessing in our lives-the love of family. —Mary Jane Postiglione, Adoption & Orphan Advocate
