I Love You, Little One

I Love You, Little One

by Nancy Tafuri Illustrated by Nancy Tafuri

This poignant picture book speaks volumes about mothers' limitless love. Six woodland creatures and one human mother explain their love in lyrical prose, using metaphors from the natural world. Soft illustrations journey across a pond, down a burrow, deep in the woods, and more. A Caldecott-honored author/illustrator brings your child this tender story that's perfect for snuggling.
