A debut children's book by reggae icon Ziggy Marley with illustrations by Ag Jatkowska.
A beautifully illustrated, multicultural children's picture book based on one of Ziggy Marley's most beloved songs, "I Love You Too." The book explores a child's relationship with parents, nature, and the unstoppable force of love. This is Ziggy's first book, though his foray into children's music is extensive and very well known. He is the singer of "Believe in Yourself," the popular theme song of the hit TV show, Arthur.
From the introduction by Ziggy Marley:
"One day I was in my kitchen making breakfast with my then three-year-old daughter Judah. She looked at me and said, 'I love you.' I spontaneously replied to her, 'I love you too.' From that came the song and now the book based on the lyrics. I hope you share and enjoy this with your loved ones as I have with mine. I love you too."
