Love is me, and love is you.
You see, when you smile I smile too.
When you’re around, the skies are blue.
It’s like being happy . . . times two!
Monica Sheehan’s delightful follow-up to Be Happy! reminds readers about the surprisingly simple acts that demonstrate love: giving a hug, sharing your toys, being a good friend, and much more. This vibrant, uplifting title all about love makes a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day or any time of the year!
This buoyant board book celebrates the love between an exuberant dog (that starred in Sheehan's Be Happy! A Little Book for a Happy You) and a gray mouse. The loosely outlined animals ride in a car ("When you're around the skies are blue./ It's like being happy! Times two"), sit on a city rooftop watching heart-shaped fireworks, roast marshmallows in the woods, and curl up under the covers at night ("Love is the place... where you always belong"). Sheehan avoids casting her duo in parent-child roles, giving this book added potential as a gift between adults. Ages 2 5.
