Calling all valentines

This is just about the cutest little book I have ever read, I Like You by Sandol Stoddard. I bought it for Cameron for Valentine's day, but I am like a little kid in a candy store and I just too excited to wait.....so I gave it to him early. Oh well, he is married to a surprise ruiner.

Here is an excerpt from my favorite part:

I like you because because because
I forget why I like you but I do
So many reasons
On the 4th of July I like you because it's the 4th of July
On the fifth of July, I like you too
If you and I had some drums and some horns and some horses
If we had some hats and some flags and some fire engines
We could be a HOLIDAY
We could be a CELEBRATION
We could be a WHOLE PARADE
See what I mean?

Even if it was the 999th of July
Even if it was August
Even if it was way down at the bottom of November
Even if it was no place particular in January
I would go on choosing you
And you would go on choosing me
Over and over again
That's how it would happen every time
I don't know why
I guess I don't know why I really like you
Why do I like you
I guess I just like you
I guess I just like you because I like you.
