In a poem about a mama fox's unconditional love for her cub, I LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU'RE YOU describes the many moods of all children--from happy to frightened, bashful to silly, and more--and will reassure them of their parents' abiding affection and approval. Truly remarkable watercolor illustrations by beloved illustrator David McPhail are the perfect complement to Liza Baker's rhythmic, rhyming text.
