Review | I Love You Stinky Face by Lisa McCourt


A vividly illustrated bedtime story that shows how the unconditional love of a mother can be tested through the relentless questions of her little boy.

“But Mama, but Mama, what if I were a super smelly skunk, and I smelled so bad that my name was Stinky Face?”

Mothers love their children and this unconditional love is truly tested in I LOVE YOU, STINKY FACE. Lisa McCourt and Cyd Moore beautifully weave a reassuring tale of the love and affection of a parent. The imaginative son turns himself into a meat-eating dinosaur, a swamp creature and much, much more before being satisfied with the fact that no matter how stinky he is or how slimy of a creature he could possibly be, he is loved and nothing will change that.

Have you ever wondered about the unconditional love that a parent has for their children? If you are ever like me, you cringe a little when you see a child with a runny nose and the snot is running down their faces. I always look at their mothers who are so unphased by it that they could almost lick the snot right off of their faces and it not bother them, even a little.

This book describes that emotion, without being gross or creepy (like I’ll Love You Forever). In this board book, the child asks his mother if he were scary, stinky or even a bit sticky, that their mother would always love them. It only takes a few minutes to read, and even less time for it to warm your heart.

** There are more books to the Stinky Face series, I have not read them all but have enjoyed the few that I have read **
