I Love You Stinky Face by Lisa McCort
A vividly illustrated bedtime story that shows how the unconditional love of a mother can be tested through the relentless questions of her little boy.
"But Mama, but Mama, what if I were a super smelly skunk, and I smelled so bad that my name was Stinky Face?"
Mothers love their children and this unconditional love is truly tested in I Love You, Stinky Face. Lisa McCourt and Cyd Moore beautifully weave a reassuring tale of the love and affection of a parent. The imaginative son turns himself into a meat-eating dinosaur, a swamp creature and much, much more before being satisfied with the fact that no matter how stinky he is or how slimy of a creature he could possibly be, he is loved and nothing will change that.
This book combines the things Henry and I both love into one neat little package. I love books about unending devotions of love, Henry loves books about all things stinky. It's a win-win. Once again these books allow for some fun voices as we read and Lisa McCourt has continued the series with a bunch of others including our personal favorites; I Miss You, Stinky Face and You Can Do It, Stinky Face. We are also lucky enough to live in a city that loves theater for all ages and we have two coveted tickets to I Love You, Stinky Face at the Stages Theater!
