Description

Balloons love the moon, and a tuba loves a tune, but these don't compare to the love we have for you. Award-winning poet Lorna Crozier uses evocative rhyme, complemented by Rachelle Anne Miller's whimsical imagery, to provide babies and toddlers with common concepts that explain just how great love is.

Editorial Reviews

"This charming little board book from the Governor General's Literary Award-winning author, Lorna Crozier, playfully and poetically explores the depths of love between a parent and child…Each page plays with simple yet sophisticated imagery that is a delight to the ear and eye…[Miller] also whimsically pulls in natural elements such as flowers, insects and landscapes from all four seasons to bring additional richness to the reading experience. The harmonious interplay of the images created by Crozier's text and Miller's illustrations produces a delightful reading experience, making this a great addition to baby's first library."

— Canadian Children's Book News

"More Than Balloons is a fine addition to home board book collections and should be in all libraries serving this target audience. Highly Recommended."

— CM Magazine

A perfect bedtime story that would pair well with Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney.

— Youth Services Book Review

"The text conveys love to a wide audience made up of diverse familial bonds...Miller's colour palette is soft and inviting, rendering the animal characters in a cartoon style that is approachable and visually pleasing for young readers. More Than Balloons is a welcome addition to personal, library and school collections serving a preschool audience."

— Resource Links

"Comparisons are creative and lovely…The constancy of the rhyme scheme is remarkable…The artwork is exquisite: simple, yet elegant lines, delightful animal characters, warm washes of color, and plenty of details to build young vocabularies. The warm tone and magical drawings make this ideal bedtime reading."

— Kirkus Reviews

"A sweet and satisfying selection for parent/child bonding."

— School Library Journal
