    With You Always:

    If You Love Me So Much:


    Each book in this delightful series brings much to offer to each reader, depending on what they are looking for. If You Love Me So Much touches on the topic of understanding. How can a parent love you if you have to do things that you don't want to do like brushing your teeth, doing your homework, or chores? Readers will soon understand that it is because a parent loves you so much that they have you do those things, to not only take care of yourself, but to help you grow.

    In the story Under The Tree a boy thinks that he is lost only to find out that he is exactly where he's supposed to be. Children, at times, get confused and don't understand the bigger picture that is set before them. Children will be able to learn how to take a step back and look at things from a different perspective. When they do, everything becomes clear.

    With You Always is a story about loss. It is hard enough for an adult to understand the loss of a loved one, but for a child, it is most difficult to understand. This story is one that readers should read to their child when the loss of a loved one occurs. It is a tear jerker, especially in the end, but it does help a child understand that a loved one who dies is never really gone, they are always with us in our hearts.  

    Danielle has created this amazing series for children of all ages, to help them understand various problems that can occur during their life. Parents will love the extra information in the back of each book to help the parent discuss the topic more completely.
