If a being from another planet came to Earth and asked you what love is, there is a good chance that you would struggle to find an answer. How do you define this powerful force that is a feeling, and at times is also an action?  Love makes people build connections with other people, and it encourages us to do extraordinary things.

In this unique board book the author uses pictures of paintings, sculptures, and other artworks to help us to see how remarkable love is. We see a mother and child cuddling, and a couple slow dancing. We see a child stroking a cat, and friends walking down a street arm in arm. Through art we see how love can make us feel safe and graceful, strong and cozy. It can make us brave and daring.

Even though we cannot technically see, touch, taste, hear, or smell it, love comes in many forms that we can experience, and the wonderful thing is that is it everywhere. All you have to do is to look.
