MOO-MOO, I LOVE YOU! is a silly picture book of love, loaded up with word play. The book describes all the ways in which the caregiver loves a child, with every sentence containing a word that has been changed into a moo-word. For instance, this includes words such as moo-sic, sch-moo-zing, hu-moo-r, and moo-zarella. The fun illustrations and simple color scheme add to the fun of the story.

What I loved: Books about love that are made to share with children are great for gifts and for bedtime snuggles. This one has a cute and unique theme with the moo-ing throughout. The messages are great, including unconditional and big love themes, such as loving no matter the moo-d and as big as a moo-se. The illustrations are simple but full of cute cows acting out each page and with a fun cartoonish feel. The text is easy to read and printed in a clear and large font.

What left me wanting more: As a small point, the moo word play gets to be pretty cumbersome in places, and it was hard to read it out everywhere and so many times. I do appreciate some good word play, but it made this one a bit harder to read, due to the high content level (though they did stick to their theme well!).

Final verdict: MOO-MOO, I LOVE YOU! is a delightful and silly sweet book about love with plenty of puns and simple illustrations to charm young readers.
