Ways to Say I Love You


by Marilyn Singer and Alette Straathof

"A beautiful and heartwarming picture book celebrating the ways in which Earth's creatures say "I love you." A sweet and lyrical picture book for younger children celebrating all the ways that creatures on our planet say "I love you." From snuggling garter snakes to big, cozy bear hugs, this book in verse shares how animals we'd expect, and some we wouldn't, express affection for each other. Each animal interaction is compared with a similar human one, in beautifully blended illustrations composed by the talented Alette Straathof—showing that we are not so different from our animal neighbors. Find out more about the animals in the back pages and discover how to say "I love you" in different languages." -- publisher
