Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

PreSchool-K-Cabban captures and communicates the perpetual motion of a carefree toddler. The rhyming text follows a young bear through a day of normal doings (walking with parents, a picnic with friends, bath time). Each double-page spread shows the smiling youngster finding love in an activity. "Love is splish-splashing through puddles,/And love's getting soaked in the rain./Love is a rainbow that bursts through the sky/When the Sun begins shining again." The book is saved from being overly sweet, though just barely, by the exuberance of the watercolor-and-ink illustrations. This book is meant for one-on-one sharing, and youngsters will enjoy searching for the tiny mice that follow the young bear and his friends on their adventures. If your copy of Sam McBratney's Guess How Much I Love You (Candlewick, 1995) sees a lot of action, this book will too.

From Kirkus Reviews

A little bear's day is filled with lovebig, small, buzzing, wet, and sweet. Andreae points out that love can cover a much wider range of experiences than simple romantic notions, and may not even involve another person: ``Love is a feeling of laughing out loud,'' or, more insipidly, ``Love is a rainbow that bursts through the sky when the sun begins shining again.'' Where there is a connection to another person or creature, ``Love is when somebody quietly listens to everything you've got to say.'' Making friends with bees, slurping handfuls of honey, and bursting to share the day's adventures with family at bathtime are some of the more original expressions of feeling that ring true. Cabban's illustrations show the little bear's world as a secure, happy placejust the kind of home where love abounds. (Picture book. 3-7) -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.

My mother-in-law gave this book to my son for Valentine's Day, and it is a delight! The watercolor illustrations are just terrific, and the bears who star in the story are so sweet and snuggly-looking, you'll (almost) wish for a product tie-in -- that's saying a lot! Even better, the prose describes the different ways we can show each other love. One of the lines from the book (``Love is when somebody quietly listens to everything you've got to say.'') has served as a gentle reminder to me to be more patient with my son's constant chatter. I can't think of a more loving way to say goodnight to a child than reading this special book out loud.

I just love this book! I read this book almost daily to my daughter. We just love the sing-songy rhyme about love. It is a great bed-time story, giving children happy thoughts to go to bed with. Wonderful!

We originally checked this book out of the library and loved it so much we had to buy it. The illustrations are warm, detailed and original while the story not only gets your preschooler thinking about savoring precious moments, I find it brings back fond memories of my childhood. Simply beautiful!

My one year old absolutely loves this book. It is one of the sweetest and most enjoyable stories I have read. The words just put you in a loving mood. I have read this so many times that I have memorized it. I have tried hiding the book, but she always manages to find it and crawls into my lap to hear it one more time. It is truly "a great bedtime story". I have decide to get another one so when she grows up, she can share it with her children.

This book is a beautiful depiction of love and a great way to describe it to a sweet child who finds joy in the simple things like tickles and skipping. The reviewer who didn't like it because they prefer the Bible's description of love is missing out. I believe this is how Jesus would describe love to a child...in amazing analogies like the Bible is full of. This book will be one of the few I make sure I save as a keepsake for my child.

My husband and I have been reading this book to our baby-to-be since the first week of my pregnancy (we are now at 26 weeks). Of all the books we've read, this is definitely our favorite. It's the perfect way to end our day (we're hoping our little baby boy feels the same way).
Check out barewalls.com for 3 different posters based on illustrations from the book! I just ordered a couple to hang in the nursery.

This is one of the sweetest children's books I have everread. It brings back warm, carefree, childhood memories. My 18-month old loves to hear it at bedtime and giggles everytime....
The illustrations are just beautiful. I'm thinking about decorating the walls in my daughter's new room with some of the drawings from the book, but I'll definitely need to call on some artist friends for help. END

My mom bought this book for me when I went off to college. Even though I am not a young child, I still enjoyed the book because it had meaning to me. I enjoy how books like this can relate to children and adults. When I am a mom I want to read this book to my children before they go to sleep because it talks about how love is important and how you can love in all different kinds of ways.
