New York Times #1 Bestseller!

I've Loved You Since Forever is a celebratory and poetic testament to the timeless love felt between parent and child. This beautiful picture book is inspired by Today show co-anchor Hoda Kotb's heartwarming adoption of her baby girl, Haley Joy.

With Kotb's lyrical text and stunning pictures by Suzie Mason, young ones and parents will want to snuggle up and read the pages of this book together, over and over again.

In the universe,

there was you and

there was me,

waiting for the day our

stars would meet...

(synopsis from Goodreads)

This is a really, really quick read (seriously, it probably took me under a minute to get through). But it's a book I might go back to again, since the sentiment, the words, and the pictures are all quite strong. I can see this being a bedtime favourite, with kids looking at the cute pictures of young animals and their parents, and the gentle rhythmic narrative lulling them to sleep.

This one would make a lovely baby gift, too.
