Strict grammarians may quibble with some of the words used as verbs in this children's book, but we found it creative and fun. Animal and human parents and babies play around with all the different ways they can express their love for each other.
A rabbit says, "I see you. I miss you. I hug you. I kiss you." For two foxes, love is "I hid you. I tease you." Mama bear says, "I chase you," and baby replies, "I slow you." The conversation between two deer goes: "I hear you. I let you. I know you. I get you."
We can imagine parents and children having a lot of fun making up their own ways to say "I heart you" with this book in hand. Writer Meg Fleming and illustrator Sarah Jane Wright have come up with a fun exercise for people of all ages.
