About the Book:
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, I Love You, Be Careful—a picture book that is also designed to be a gift book for adults and children alike—shares these word that follow us our entire lives. The beautiful illustrations capture poignant memories and cause one to reflect on all the “Be Careful” moments in life and smile.

I Love You, Be Careful can be experienced in two ways. The book can be purchased as a print version (in hard or soft cover) for personal use or as a gift. You can also send as an eBook/Card from, Smashword, B&N or wherever eBooks are sold. (Note: There is a page to personalize it as a gift for adults or children.)

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.

About the Authors:
Judy Snider lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia with her husband, Gil and two silly cats. She is the author of the CWA award-winning children’s picture book, Goldy’s Baby Socks and one of a team of authors who wrote, The Scared Purse.

“No matter whether it was our grown kids, husbands or other loved ones our love and concern for them inspired us to write this book,” states Judy Snider.

Joan Dickow is a 20-year breast cancer survivor, a mother, grandmother, wife, friend and sister. She finds that there is beauty all around her and all her good moments and stressful moments inspire her. She lives in Berkley, Michigan with her husband, Fred and their cat, Coffee. This is her first book and she is currently working on her second picture book, The Porch Fairy.

Joan Dickow stated, “Everyday moments in my life inspire me!” 

I Love You, Be Careful makes you 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!" It opens discussion for children to talk and ask questions, and each page presents a different 'be careful' moment for the reader to contemplate. Lighthearted and sweet, this book would be a lovely addition to any library. Cady B. Driver does the book’s beautiful illustrations.
