"This book is great not just for the "I'll always love you, no matter what" message, not just for the "when I'm far away I still love you" message, but for really learning to read.

After reading the book several times I realized that the illustrations in the book are going through bedtime motions - eating dinner, taking a bath, brushing teeth, etc. It's like a story-within-a-story, and it can help even older kids learn to really look at what's going on. Like in a graphic novel, where the words only tell part of the story.

"Small.. Large as character names? No, the author came off right away as having no originality. When I read this book to my child I said "Mama" in place of Large. The message gets distorted otherwise.

I choose to read this book in hopes it would help with separation anxiety my two year old has. It was recommended to toddlers ages 2 and up. As a child development graduate at Oregon State University, I have spent many hours studying child's brain development. With my credentials out of the way, a 2 year old will have a very very difficult time grasping what this book's message is.

Three and Four year old's would have a better shot at trying to figure out that the parent aka Large ( dumb dumb dumb), loves the child no matter what. I do not recommend this for toddlers, I do recommend this for preschoolers and older.

I am not a huge fan of this book to say the least. I will be fair and say that, I do think that the message is cute and sentimental. Just marketed to the wrong age group.

" Lovely story and art. I especially like that both foxes are gender-neutral, so it can be easily used for any configuration of parent and child! " said.

" It's about love and acceptance ... no matter what. Ant the baby wolf asks his mum if she will love him even when she is dead and she answers that she will love him mo matter what. A touching story. Loved every bit of it. " said.

"Small Fox feels like he is not loved and so he asks his mum about his worries. “But if I turned into a bug, would you still love me and give me a hug?” His mum reassures him that she loves him no matter what.

The book helps to show parental love. The author explains to children that mummy loves you no matter what.

This book is fantastic for story time especially where there is a child with some worries. It is also great for free choice for the children to read by themselves. I think it is ideal for age 5-7.

"A great book to help reassure anxious or insecure children that their parents love is unconditional and no matter what, they will always be loved and cared for.
I would recommend this book for use within a Reception or KS1 classroom as it would be a great tool to help vulnerable children who may be suffering with anxiety to feel more calm and secure in their environment and within themselves. It may also be great just to remind children of how important they are.
Also, this book includes the issue of death and the possible death of a parent and this is something that any child would struggle with immensely and so it is great that there are books such as this one to remind children and help them with such difficult concepts and scenarios.

"There are some books which absolutely touch my heart and bring tears to my eyes. While No Matter What is a classic parent/child love story, it’s the last two pages (about love existing no matter what) which choke me up, night after night.

There are so many reasons I love this book, but I have to say, the major reason is this: this book isn’t parent/caregiver/child specific. It’s about love. The characters are “Large” and “Small,” so this book could be about grandparents, siblings, aunts, uncles, two moms, two dads, etc. It’s just about feeling safe, loved, secure, and warm.

We’ve been reading this book every night (renewed it from the library) and asked for it for my son’s birthday! It’s a classic bedtime book, and a springboard for discussion on behavior and love. I’m excited to go read more of Debi Gliori’s work!

"I love this book. I bought as an Easter gift for my 1 year old as he's not a massive fan of chocolate but he loves books.

The story is a conversation between Large (a mummy/daddy/guardian fox) and Small (the child). Neither character is sexed so it could be any parent and child relationship which I think is very universal. I do voices for the characters when I read this - Small has a little squeaky voice and Large a gentle calm voice. My son finds this funny and checks it is me doing the voices. Their conversation is Small questioning Large's love and Large reassuring Small that "No matter what" Large will always love Small.

My son loves the beautiful pictures. They are bright and beautifully drawn and each page has a lot of detail. The last page has embossed silver stars that shimmer.

He often picks this book for his bedtime story. It's a lovely story to read before bed to make a young child feel safe and no that no matter what their large will love them.
