Heartwarming and Uplifting Picture Book for Children and Adults

Co-authored by sisters Joan Dickow and Judy Snider, the idea of I Love You, Be Careful started from a telephone conversation one day when the sisters talked about wanting their loved ones to be safe and know how much they are loved. 


From the moment we are born, someone is telling us to be careful. No matter what country we call home or what language we speak, these words follow us our entire lives. You might hear parents, friends, family or children lovingly say this phrase at least once a day. Think about all of the times that a loved one goes off to school, play or work, and you say, “I Love You, Be Careful!"


I Love You, Be Careful is a heartwarming and uplifting book. There is a page to personalize it as a gift for adults or children. The book’s beautiful illustrations capture poignant memories and cause one to reflect on all the “Be Careful” moments in life and smile.
