This program is read by Taye Diggs.

From Taye Diggs and Shane W. Evans comes I Love You More Than..., another heartfelt audiobook collaboration.

My child.

I am not always with you
as much as I’d like.

But you are always in my mind
and my heart.

Some families look different than others. A father who doesn’t live full-time with his son tells him all the ways he misses and loves him.

I Love You More Than... is perfect for families who are separated, whatever the circumstances. Its message of love underscores the bond between parent and child in ways that little ones will understand.

Praise for I Love You More Than . . .

Mixed Me!:

“Mike's unerring sense of self ('I'm a beautiful blend of dark and light') and the powerful love that surrounds him make this a rewarding, valuable read for families of any makeup.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

“[A] well-written, fun story of acceptance, friendship, and love. The text, colors, and design make this a good choice for read-alouds, but there are many details in the artwork . . . that make it good for one-on-one sharing.” —School Library Journal, starred review

“Mike's confidence in his own appearance and coolness as well as the way he proudly embodies diversity, including a certain level of androgyny, make this a refreshing read. . . . [The] mixed-media illustrations will make readers want to reach out and touch them . . . If all kids had the confidence about who they are that Mike has, what a wonderful world this would be.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“The story's joyful message will resonate with multiracial readers and their families, leaving them with the cheeky takeaway: if you have a problem with me, it's your problem.” —Booklist

Chocolate Me:
"With its universal themes of wanting to fit in, self-acceptance, and self-esteem, this read-aloud offering is sure to strike a chord with many young readers/listeners, and on a variety subjects, not just race." —School Library Journal
