by Matt de la Peña (Author), Loren Long (Illustrator)

A New York Times Bestseller, Love is an abstract poem of sorts; a creative exploration of a child’s learning about Love, and all the myriad things that Love can be created from. Love, the child learns, is a colour and a smell; it’s a reaction; something we bring with us. It’s a star that leaves a light long after it has burned away.

Love is a picture book for older readers. Set in an urban setting, it touches upon the love shared by families, but also communities, and the reader senses, a notion of pulling together in times of grief or hardship. It is a good touch-stone for sparking a conversation about what Love means to the child themselves, and how that Love manifests in small ways that an observant person can notice, cherish and linger upon.
