Children need to know that above all else they are loved. But in a hectic world where the stresses and strains of busy lives push emotions into the background and practicalities to the fore the little things can sometimes be forgotten, and while an adult can often be content with the mere assumption that those around them care and love them no matter what they do, a child often needs more reassurance.
In No Matter What Debi Gliori tackles this most important of issues with a sense of wit and style that belies the importance of her message, allowing her solemn hero Small to ask the Really Big Questions about the nature of unconditional love and answering them with an intelligence and spirit illuminated by frantic and often hilarious illustrations which tickle the funny bone while providing honest answers.
"Does love wear out?" said Small.No Matter What is a deceptively simple and important picture book which tackles a mighty big issue with a stealth and humour that prevents it from slipping into sloppy sentimentality while giving comfort and reassurance to any child who has ever questioned the nature of love.
"Does it break or bend?
Can you fix it, stick it, does it mend?"
If you only ever buy one book for the child in your life make it this one. (Age 3 and over) --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.
`[A story] about unconditional love . . . this is what I'd want to say to my own baby'

I was looking for a reassuring story & this touches on does love wear out or end even when we're gone. To which his Mummy assures him that love is like star light & even when we're not here anymore it still goes on this is very fitting for our situation after telling her that Daddy is a star now.
Definately recommend to anyone in a similar situation as I struggled to find bereavement story's to help me explain what was going on for my 3 year old though be reassured this is not a sad story & is extremely well written. No Matter What
When you've had one of those days when your child isn't being at their best and you've had to tell them off, this is the perfect story to read at bedtime, letting them know that no matter what, you'll always love them.
The book was given as a gift about 2 years ago and I still say thank you to my cousin for it.
