No Matter What written by Debi Gliori is the very FIRST picture book on this blog to receive a 10/10 rating. I make it a habit to review books that I read and loved as a child, or that I have discovered with my children however this book was first brought to my attention by my darling 4 year old niece. As she tromped down the stairs to our reading corner at grandma’s house, carrying an armful of books, she sat down beside me, shuffled through them and demanded we read this one first. Yes ma’am! I was blown away by the simple message of unconditional love shared between Large Fox and Small Fox. The verbiage is simple and funny, rhyming where appropriate. In combination with the bright, well done illustrations and the memories of my niece giggling with glee at the story, this is currently my favorite lap reader. Every child I know will be receiving their very own copies for the foreseeable holiday future. I recommend this book for ages 1 through 1st grade.
