I Love You This Much, Nonna,

by James L. Doti

Illustrated by Bagram Ibatoulline

In "I Love You This Much, Nonna" little Jimmy confronts a loss in his life and ultimately learns how to accept this loss and grow emotionally from the experience. The setting is Chicago during the 1950s. Illuminating the book's storyline, the four seasons mark the passage of time.

Award-winning illustrator, Bagram Ibatoulline brings those four seasons to life with beautifully rendered and evocative scenes, many of them involving the celebrations of Christmas traditions. Jimmy's emotional growth from sadness to loneliness and ultimately to the realization that death is not a final goodbye is an important and timely lesson for everyone. A special treat is a recipe for Nonna's Biscotti di Cannella.

"I Love You This Much, Nonna" has been named to Kirkus Reviews' Best Books of 2018.
