An endearing picture book about the true and enduring love between a mother and son

I love you three Dots
Written by Mona Haynes
Illustrated by Maryann Held

This is an endearing story about what true love between a mother and son really means. It is a message that kids need to hear over and over again.

The story is about a boy who is trying to learn how to count in his room one early afternoon. He had a favorite book that Mom used all the time—a book that the little boy really loved.

Then one day the boy noticed that there were three dots on each page. He had no idea what that meant and why there were there.

So, he asked his mom. His mom tried to explain why, but she had to explain it in a way that he would understand. His mom said that the three dots meant going on forever. Then she realized that even that definition was a bit hard for a child to gasp.

But the child did understand and he even used it to tell his mom how much he loved her at bedtime.

What a wonderful book about love with a special message for kids: a mom’s love goes on forever.
