How Do I Love You?

How Do I Love You?

by Marion Dane Bauer Illustrated by Caroline Jayne Church

"How do I love you? Let me count the ways.
I love you as the sun loves the bright blue days..."

In this rhyming story book, a parent declares her love...as the bees love a flower, a duck loves a shower, a bird loves to sing, and a bear loves the spring. Warm and reassuring, this book makes an ideal read-aloud for babies and toddlers!
