Do You Love Me?

By Joost Elffers and Curious Pictures

PICTURE BOOK (ages 2-5)

This is an adorable book about the unconditional love between a parent and child. The child asks a simple question, "do you love me?" and the parent responds, "always, dear." The book is made up of these simple questions and reassuring answers about love and being needed. The computerized illustrations use bright colors on a solid background, which brings the focus to the creatures, who resemble elephants, bears, and rabbits. They have long, rounded noses, which they use to connect to each other and show their love. This is a wonderful story to share at bedtime. Enjoy!
