This is the perfect gift to give to a new big brother or sister. I bought it when we had our second baby, and it has the perfect message. My children love this book as well.

My children ask this regularly, especially my six-year-old Emma.
"Who do you love the best?"
She wants so badly to be loved "the best".
Through Joosse's book, I learned an incredible new way to express how I love her "the purplest" or the "chocolatiest" or "the bell ringingest".....
By using a more descriptive word than "Best", the Mother in this book speaks to what is real and true about her sons Max and Julian so that they are each more than "just satisfied" with being loved the best.....
She uses colors to describe her love for each of her boys after she has described other possibly conflict, competitive situations by being more specific with what is special instead of labeling or judging one above the other.
More adults ought to read this one!

My daughter (2.5 yrs) received this as a gift when my son was born and LOVES it. We read it together everyday (by her request) and it has become a standard gift whenever a friend has a second child... The characters compete, but the message is that there is no competition for Mom's love - she loves them both 'the best' because they are such individuals.

This book is about a mama and her two sons: Max and Julian who are always in competition with each other. One night they decide to go dig up worms and go fishing.
Max and Julian are asking their mother who has the most worms and she replies Max has the liveliest and Julian has the juiciest. Next they row there boat out to prepare for fishing. Julian asks who is the best rower, and she responds Julian has the deepest strokes and Max�s were the fastest. The mother loves each of her children in a special and unique way. She tells each of them that her love for them resembles a color. She tells Max that she loves him the bluest like the mist of a mountain, splash of a waterfall, and the hush of a whisper. She tells Julian that she loves him the reddest like the color of the sky, and the campfire�s flame. I think she had a unique way of explaining to the boys how she loved them. The way she told them resembled their personalities to her. I enjoyed this book very much and would recommend it because it has an interesting point and is written in a way that the boys can understand. The ways she expresses her love can be very easily understood by the children. ~ Katelyn Carson

I finally found a book about a mother with two boys! I mentioned to my sister-in-law how competitive my boys are for my praise and love. She suggested I buy this book. I bought it from Amazon and think it is wonderful. To be honest, I really bought the book for myself, as a reminder and example of how to bring out the best in each of my children. I have already thought of which of my boys will be "blue" and which will be "red"! They think the book is a great read, but I can't wait to save it for them for when they get older and can appreciate the meaning even more!
