Linda Kranz, winner of the IRA Children’s Choices Award, is the author of eight journals and a craft book, as well as the bestselling Only One You and You Be You. A self-taught artist who painted on canvas until the day she found a smooth river rock, Linda lives with her husband in Flagstaff, Arizona. Together they enjoy discovering new landscapes in and around the Southwest and returning to their longtime favorite places, again and again. For a complete list of her titles, visit her website at www.lindakranz.com.
My favorite rocks are back, this time providing colorful and evocative assurances that each of us is loved—always. With Love You When . . ., Linda Kranz creates an engaging testament to the timelessness of love, once again aided by her frisky and ingenious buddies, the boldly painted rocks who so artfully share her stories. Kranz’s gentle touch with word and brush belies the exquisite power of her message: I love you always. This may be a children’s book, but children should make sure their adults have one, too!

. . . Beautifully illustrated with a motif of rocks and stones, this might be a more personal book as a gift. Teachers will enjoy the writing pattern templates on the author’s website.
