Released simultaneously with Ziggy Marley's new album, Fly Rasta.

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.

Marley has been a long-time fixture in the children's entertainment arena. In 2004, he played the role of Ernie, the mischievous jellyfish in the Dreamworks animated smash, Shark Tale, and has made appearances on multiple family and children’s shows including Sesame Street, Dora the Explorer, the 2009 "Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade," and A Family Is a Family Is a Family: A Rosie O'Donnell Celebration on HBO. In 2009, Ziggy, along with his wife, children, and mother Rita Marley, joined President Barack Obama for the 131st annual White House Easter Egg Roll celebration. More recently, he has crafted the theme song for HBO's Saving My Tomorrow, is featured in the GRAMMY Museum / Cal Science Center's Exhibit "Saving the Earth with Music" and lent his voice to the PupStar franchise. Marley is also an honorary member of the board of directors for Little Kids Rock, an organization that provides free musical instruments and free lessons to children in public schools throughout the United States.

From the introduction to I Love You Too 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."

A coproduction of Akashic Books and Tuff Gong Worldwide

    This is a beautifully illustrated book, with bright and colorful paintings of multicultural families and children in a variety of scenes. Since I don't know Ziggy Marley's song that is the basis for the words of this book, I found the repeated chorus of "I love you too" to be a bit of a distraction, but it did not substantially distract from the book. Perhaps if the publisher had included a CD of the song with the book, the reading experience would have been enhanced. Overall I would recommend it for parents of young children (up to 6 years old, depending on the child). Older kids may enjoy reading it to younger children as well.

    What a fun and cute book. This book features the lyrics from Ziggy Marley's song I Love You. The illustrations are delightful and feature a lot of different children and families, including mixed race, interracial, same sex, etc. I appreciate the diversity in the illustrations. Good book for preschoolers and toddlers. The lyrics have a nice rhythm, but it isn't a storybook with a plot, characters, and storyline, but a great addition to any library or storytime rotation.

    My children loved this book. My 6 year old read most of the pages, and my 4 year old read the "I love you" passages. It was a nice way to get everyone involved in our bedtime story routine. The illustrations were colorful and make each page easy to understand. It's a very straight forward kids story with a parent telling the child how much the parent cares. It has simple phrases like "when you smile, I smile..." My children found this book very enjoyable and I did too. They have read it to me for the last 3 nights since we got the book, and they enjoy taking turns to read the pages.It's a easy book for a 6 year old to read and understand, but a bit more challenging for my 4 year old, so he only reads every third page which says "I love you, I love you too..." I definitely recommend this book to families with children 2-6 years old.

    The illustrations on each page give examples of different ways to express love such as hugs, kisses, holding hands or playing together. They also show the many diverse people or creatures to love like parents, babies, pets, grandparents etc. The images can help explain "love". The bright, simple images mimic the upbeat, joyful rhythm of the ragae song, "I love you too" by Ziggy Marly. For this reason I believe the text is better understood when sang. If read, the chorus is repeated so frequently that it is more of a distraction. I believe the book is best suited for the very young to about age 6. For the child who loves to sing, I could see this book as a favorite.I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
