More About P. K. Hallinan
P.K. Hallinan began writing children's books 40 years ago when his wife asked him to make a book for their two young sons as a Christmas gift. He did, and the feedback he got from friends and neighbors inspired him to write more books. Since then, P.K. has written and illustrated nearly 100 children's books and has sold more than 9,000,000 copies worldwide.
P.K. was born in Los Angeles in 1944 and spent his youth primarily in Bethesda, Maryland and in the San Fernando Valley. Although P.K. never studied art, his disappointment with the work of the artist assigned to illustrate his first book motivated him to learn to draw. He has been illustrating his own books ever since.
"If I did any one thing right," says P.K., "I decided very early on to write books that help children and parents alike have better and happier lives. That decision has kept many of my books in-print for more than 25 years, because the values I teach are timeless."
His newest book, "A LIFE THAT MATTERS: Five Steps to Making a Difference", is his first book for adults. In it he describes five simple ways to add significance to virtually any career.
P.K. is also an ordained minister. He lives with his wife, Jeanne, and his boxer, Betty, in the mountains above Ashland and also at the beach, in Brookings, Oregon.

I give this book Six Stars! Mar 15, 2007
This is one of my favorite children's books. It's so lyrical and soothing to read aloud. The words are so true and straight from the heart. My daughter chooses this book every time we read together. A must have for all!!!
I love this book! Mar 1, 2007
This book is wonderful. I have 3 boys (8, 6, & 3). They all love to hear it. It is a great reminder to children that you love them regardless of the fact that they may get in trouble sometimes. It captures so many cute things, especially little boys, can do. I buy this for all my friends with boys.
Amazing May 5, 2006
This is my daughter's favorite book. I love it and I never get tired of reading it to her. It's well writted, sweet, great pictures, perfect rhymes and cadence-- the perfect kids book.
I think this is a must-read for all kids. I bought this after buying "Guess How Much I Love You," which is, in my opinion, one of the worst children's books out there. This book gives parents a way to tell their children how much they are loved WITHOUT comparing the degree of their love to their child's.
I wholeheartedly recommend this book to every parent out there. You'll read it so much that you'll memorize it, but you won't care-- you'll still love reading it every night-- multiple times.
A Parent's Love Aug 17, 2005
This book truly captures a parent's love for their child. This author has a gift for writing the most poignant things in books for children. The books are more for me than for my son! They give me a way to tell him how I feel about him...and keep his interest with pictures. This is a great book for any parent to read to their child...young and old.
Such a Sweet, and Totally True, Book! Feb 7, 2005
My husband and I have given this book to our two-year-old son. It simply explains when, how, where, and how a parent loves their child. The illustrations are precious and they show realistic situations. We read this book to our son as frequently as we can. He loves it and I can hardly get through it without tearing up. :)
