Celebrated poet Susan Musgrave weaves the purity, strength and sweetness of love with simple joys from nature experienced through the seasons. Marilyn Faucher’s vibrant illustrations are a lovely complement to Musgrave’s prose, and together these elements introduce babies and toddlers to the delight of cold summer plums, a shower of cherry blossom petals and the endlessness of love. A perfect read-aloud, this poetic board book will foster warmth and closeness with the littlest ones in your life.
The illustrations are friendly and approachable, yet absolutely gorgeous and the poetic (although not rhyming—that threw me off on the first read!) descriptions of love for a child are wonderful.
This book is breathtaking! I love the creative vocabulary and word choice to describe a parent’s love. To top it all off, the illustrations are absolutely gorgeous!
