* About ILYM *
Experience the bestseller that has sparked the conversation of love around the world!

Welcome! Whether you already have our book and are enjoying its message of love or if you are new to I Love You More and have come here to find out more about it and us, we’re glad you’re here!

People often ask “What age is I Love You More appropriate for?” We have found that the real answer to this question is 0-110! We thought the answer would be 0 to 8, great as a baby shower gift and an 8 year old would still enjoy reading it to a parent or grandparent. But much to our surprise… people buy I Love You More to share with loved ones of ALL ages and for ALL reasons. Turns out, “I Love You More” is a phrase millions of people use every day. People buy it for their teenagers going off to college, graduations, wedding gifts, anniversaries, for their young kids, their grown kids, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, grandmas, grandpas and of course for young ones. It is also a special gift to present to a teacher. It seems no one is ever too young or old to be reminded of just how much they are truly loved!

I Love You More is a flip story, meaning it starts from either side and reads to the middle; like love it really never ends! It also represents the two sides of love-the giving and receiving. It is a simple yet profound message of love expressed between a parent and child; one that a child of any age will understand, appreciate and enjoy.

We believe too often love is assumed. Love should be seen, heard, felt, sensed, shown, expressed, talked about—and more! Reading I Love You More will become a game, a conversation of love that people, especially parents and children, can share for years. I Love You More is a simple, touching story, filled with rhyme and rhythm and vibrant child-like illustrations, this book will be treasured by anyone who has ever said “I love you” and heard the best response in the world:

“I LOVE YOU MORE!”
