How do you measure love? Do you love someone in your family as tall as the trees? As high as the mountains? As far away as the desert? As deep as the ocean? Love is a feeling that can run deep and far. It’s not something that’s easily measured. But we can compare our love to the ends of the earth and beyond. Certainly, a parent, a grandparent, or a caregiver will love each of their children to infinity and beyond. Love is a sentiment that needs to be cherished, treasured, protected with kindness and caring. Love is beyond a definable measurement.
Angelina Gauthier’s picture book story, I Love You to the Treetops, is a clever way to introduce the very young reader to the infinitesimal measurement of the abstract concept of love. By making simple comparisons to things that young readers can relate to and visualize, like the clouds in the sky, the treetops, and the mountains (and so much more), the author has provided young readers with a fun way to understand the deepest feelings of love. The colorful illustrations bring a visual concept to the comparisons being made and help the author present her points effectively. The book is also a journey, exploring all the wonders of the world and the universe beyond, as the author effectively makes her comparisons with all that is wonderful in the world. This is a book to be treasured, much like Robert Munsch’s Love You Forever. The author uses a tender, compassionate way to encourage young readers to understand and appreciate the greatest beauty of all: love.
