This tender, rhyming picture book is a lively celebration of love.

Little ones adore being independent and trying new things. But they also need Mom and Dad's reassurance and snuggles. With her spare, lyrical text, debut author Meg Fleming captures the exuberance, the affection, and the tender push-and-pull of life with a child. And illustrator Sarah Jane Wright's evocative illustrations infuse the story with generous helpings of warmth and love.

Industry Reviews
Adult animals describe how they show their love for their little ones.From hugging and kissing to singing and snuggling, these are activities that will be familiar to most children, albeit ones that most animals do not engage in. Adorable animals in pastel-colored pencil-and-gouache pictures act out their love for one another. Though gently anthropomorphized in behavior, these animals are otherwise depicted realistically, unclothed and in nature. "I hide you. / I tease you. // I find you. / I squeeze you," is depicted with adult-child foxes playing hide-and-seek. Though not all the "verbs" are action words per se, children will have no trouble understanding when the picture shows an adult bear running after a cub, then that same duo hugging in the grass while the text reads "I chase you. / I slow you." A turn of the page shows the cub on the grown bear's back reaching for apples in a tree: "I lift you. / I grow you." Not all are as easy as this, though, as with the two swallows that "sway" and "swing" while flying. The final spreads go from a fawn's shy meeting with a young child in a blue dress to that child and an adult woman holding and loving each other. Both have brown hair and are white. The love is palpable in these pages, and adults and children will surely talk about their own ways of loving after sharing this. (Picture book. 3-6)
