Praise for You Belong to Me
One of the pleasures of reading aloud a certain tender type of baby book is that in doing so we literally speak words of love to the infant in our care. . . . The love language in Mamoru Suzuki’s “You Belong to Me” is direct and affecting in this way. —Wall Street Journal
