Children often ask questions that are hard to answer. Why is the sky blue? What is lightening? Where do babies come from? One question that many children ask is, “What is love?” and there really is no easy answer. How many grownups have found themselves say something like, “Well you know it is a feeling…er a thing…er…well...” They find that it is very hard to explain what love is.

This absolutely delightful board book will help adults to show little children that love is many things. It is what connects people even when they are far apart. It is that happy feeling inside when you are with the person you love, and the comfort that that someone can give when times are hard. Love is what makes people stick together and “see it through,” for love is “the greatest gift of all.”

With its warming rhyming text and its delightful dog and mouse characters, this is a book that has universal appeal. It would make a great gift for almost any occasion.
