Love You S’More Book Review
Released June 7th – #LoveYouSmore #Books #Review

I got an email from Canaan with the Hatchette Book Group about some new books coming out. I saw the one titled LOVE YOU S’MORE that was released on June 7th, and thought it would be perfect to read to my granddaughter! The illustrations were adorable and I’m sure that the story will be so fun to read with her, even as she gets older and can help with some of the words. I love how it focuses on camping and family, which are two very important things in our life! Being able to spend time together is so important, and it needs to be a focus of so many, especially during these recent times.

The LOVE YOU S’MORE book helps to share memorable moments with family, and enjoy time reading together. In this digital age, true books have gotten dusty on so many shelves. Don’t get me wrong, reading anything is super important…but there’s nothing like a true book, with pages turning to get you into the story.

This one by Melinda Lee Rahjen is adorable. The illustrations are by Rob McClurkan and they are amazing. I love seeing the little faces of the characters, show what they are talking about. Plus, it makes you kind of want to make a s’more – and there’s never anything bad about that, right?

Let me know someone in your family that might enjoy this book. Enter to win a copy below, and leave a comment of what you think. Is there another book that means a lot to you? Tell me about that, too – and I can add some new ones to my reading list!

About the Love You S’More Book:

s'moreEmbrace the puns in this charmingly campy board book about two raccoons who insist they are the one who loves the other “s’more.”

Love, puns, and s’mores are three of life’s greatest pleasures. In this little board book, two competitive raccoons declare themselves to love the other “s’more.” The fireside banter crackles with puns, and the silly competition heats up until they finally realize that with all that love, everyone wins. Outdoorsy and camping-loving families will love this book, as will anyone looking for a new way to express “s’more” love to someone in their life.

About the Author & Illustrator:

Melinda Lee Rathjen grew up in southern Illinois, reading past her bedtime whenever she could get away with it. As an editor at WorthyKids, she still spends a lot of time reading, though stealth and flashlights are rarely necessary. She lives in Nashville, Tennessee.

Rob McClurkan is a storyteller. Sometimes he uses words and sometimes pictures. He has written and illustrated two picture books, Aw, Nuts! and Playdates Rule!, and he has also illustrated a bunch of other fun picture books, like Beware the Flerken and Super Rooster Saves the Day. He lives in Georgia with a dog, two kids, and a wife. He also has a snake in his backyard that says hello every spring. It’s a nice snake but keeps to itself, and Rob likes it that way.

I need to get this sweet book for my son! We love good books like this before bedtime! PS – In your photo, I noticed Andes candies instead of Hershey’s chocolates. Now, that’s something else that I can get behind. Yum!
