I Miss You Most by Cassie Hoyt is an adorable picture book all about missing someone.
This is a great picture book filled with colourful illustrations that showcase the feeling of missing someone. It can be read as a story of grief or simply missing someone who is far away. I think this can be an excellent resource for your little ones if they are learning about this sometimes awful feeling of loss. Thinking about the time spent together and the wonderful things you can do together is a great way to manage this feeling.
This book does a great job of explaining very difficult feelings to children. How can you explain that the world is in a bit of insanity at the moment so we can’t see our loved ones? This book makes the tender and hard emotions easier to understand. I think it’s a great addition to your shelves.
To add to this review since I have since received a physical copy of this book in the mail – OMG it’s beautiful. The electronic copy is awesome (don’t get me wrong – I loved it) but the physical copy is so beautiful. The colours are bright, vibrant and luscious. The vibrancy of the beautiful illustrations and how much they stand out really does it for this book. I highly recommend grabbing the physical copy if you get the chance. Seriously, it’s one of my new favourite childrens books because of how beautiful it is. Not only do you get a beautiful and important story, but you get a beautiful book as well.
Five out of five stars.
