Love is You & Me by Monica Sheehan

Love is You & Me by Monica Sheehan

Rating: 5 love-y stars

Here's a sweet, simple book with a sweet, simple celebration of love.  For those of us teaching others what love is, for those of us who need reminders of what love is, for those of us learning and searching and thanking.  I love how this book could be given to a toddler or grandparent, a husband or best friend, a teacher or a mother.  The illustrations are cute and silly and happy.  Betcha can't read it without having a heart-string or two tugged...

Love is me...and love is you.
So when you smile, I smile too.When you're around, the skies are blue.
It's like being happy! times two.
Love is sweet...and love is GRAND!
Sometimes love...is just holding hands.
It's a feeling inside.
It's a smile in your heart.
It keeps us together when we're apart.
Love is fun!  It's feeling free!
Love lets you be who you want to be.
Love will catch you when you fall.
LOVE! It's the greatest gift of all.
It's just us two without a care.
It's what we give...and the times we share.
It wipes away the tears...sends our troubles along...
Love is the place...where you always belong.

And, by the way, Love is You & Me is only available in board book.  How fitting that a book on love is printed in this sturdy, strong, resilient form?
