I Love You 5 Lollipops

I Love You 5 Lollipops by Jaquelyn Muller, illustrations by Kathryn Zammit (Jaquelyn Muller Books)
PB RRP $14.95
ISBN 9780646591490
Review by Anastasia Gonis

Elizabeth Rose lives in a loving family circle made up of people who express themselves freely in their own unique ways. Then so does Elizabeth Rose.

Her sister twirls hoops, and her dog jumps through them. Her pop looks like a ringmaster. Her grandma twirls sticks and dresses in lavender chiffon with matching high-heeled shoes. Her dad is a harlequin that swings from a bar, but reads bedtime stories to her. And her mum looks like a princess, tiara and all.

But when each member asks how much she loves them, Elizabeth Rose answers in her unique way: 1 puppy, 2 dollies, 3 cupcakes, 4 teddy bears and 5 lollipops.

This delicious book is aimed at preschoolers. The delightful illustrations are happy and entertaining in soft colours and fine lines. The repetition of words support literacy and the numbers encourage numeracy.
