The hardback book is suitable for older children whereas the new board book version is best for babies and toddlers.

It’s not difficult to see why the book has been such a hit.  Shown here are a selection of the heartfelt reasons from reviewers :

“This book is sure to win awards and become THE coveted baby book; the first one you share with your child or grandchild. I loved reading this sweet treasure to my little ones and they looked up at me beaming, saying,'”I LOVE YOU” back to me! Such sweet moments were created in sharing this book. I hope Mr. Verger writes more children’s books. I own all the classics like Goodnight Moon and Guess How Much I Love you and this beats them all, hands down. It’s poignant and sweet and speaks to the child’s heart. What better gift to give your little one than “I Love YOU!”” – Heidi Ciampa

“”But it’s you I love most of all”… What a spectacular message to send to our children. We can never love our children enough & and this book supports just that! Way to go Verger- if a child feeling unconditionally loved & a reminder to parents how much we should be loving, embracing & reading to our children were the objectives, they were certainly accomplished! The photography is amazing, vivid and so real- I felt as if I was there! Well done… I know what I’m getting my son for Valentine’s Day.” – Mary Kerwin

“This book was written for children. I think it is ageless. I wish I could have read it to my Grandmother but she is no longer with us. Beautiful words and beautiful pictures. Being a Grandmother myself I can see why the author was ‘inspired’ to write it. His love shines through every page. I have given my Grandchildren a copy. Hope when they are in their teen years they will still read it and understand how much I love them. Thank you Donald Verger.” – Junie Bug

“Soft, touchable, texture that has to be held in your hand and in your heart. This is what Don’s photography evokes. He lives his life in tune with nature and with an artist’s eye he captures beautiful images that will transport you to the exact spot he stood behind his camera. He inspires me daily with his beautiful calendars and I can’t wait to read the inspirational quotes he has paired with the beautiful sea glass.”– catiejan

“A small gem….just like a piece of sea glass. Beautiful and inspirational quotes with photos of sea glass, stone and flowers artistically laid out. Very sweet.” – AMKof love and sea glass 4

“This lovely book was a Christmas gift from my daughter. Between the pages are beautiful images of sea glass, flowers and thought provoking words. I purchased and gave this book to a seriously ill friend, hoping to not only cheer her but to share the beauty found between the pages, beauty for the eye and words for reflection. She loves the book as much as I do. I return to it frequently and find delight each time. Well done, Mr. Verger, and thank you.”   – Florence WileySeaGlass_back

Jenny Milchman introduced the world to Take Your Children to a Bookstore Day way back in 2010.  The idea caught on and continues to grow with many stores joining in the effort to cultivate a love of reading in the young.


She encourages families to enjoy the day. She said, “On December 5th, 2015, take a child in your life to a bookstore. Watch his face light up as you give him free access, not just to a new book, but to tomorrow.”
