About this item

As every parent knows, there is nothing more stressful than being away from a child even if it's only for a few days. In this heartwarming book, Wendy Tugwood captures perfectly how the love between a mother and child copes with separation. When we're apart I miss you so I wish I didn't have to go I miss your face, your touch, your smell, Your silliness I know so well. I think of how you sing to me, "I love you too... I love you three!" On goes our love and counting game A game that always ends the same. Needing to express how much they love each other, parent and child play the old familiar counting game. The child says "I love you," the parent replies "I love you too," and the child, gleefully, replies "I love you three!" From there they continue counting until they reach "I love you ten.

About the Author

Wendy Tugwood

Wendy Tugwood was born and grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She spent her childhood writing, reading, sewing and singing. Although she would have preferred to become a country singer/songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee ... at her very wise father's insistence, she went to university and earned an accounting degree and, later, a masters in business administration. As a result, she has established her career as a Chartered Professional Accountant ... but she never gave up on her dream to be a published poet.

Her debut picture book, I Love You Too, I Love You Three, illustrated by Sheila McGraw, published September 2016 by Firefly Books, is a love letter to her (then very young) children: Michael, Gabriel, and Rebecca. She lives in Alberta with her Canadian husband and three (now teenage) children.

Wendy enjoys giving dramatic readings from her book, with audience interaction (I love you too, 3, 4, 5 ... all the way up to 10!) .
