On hand as of Mar 3 1:33pm
Love is the patter
of ten little toes
as the first light
of day trickles in.

Follow parents, grandparents, and a wide array of kids throughout all the seasons as they learn about the meaning of love. Love can be the way your smile starts to curve when a giggle is about to begin, a puddle with you in the middle, a story read with a flashlight, or a morning that bursts into color. This is a sweet and reassuring story that resonates with kids and adults.

Author Todd Tarpley's joyful celebration of everyday expressions of love is matched perfectly by Leu's cozy, inviting art.
Todd Tarpley is the author of 13 picture books, including Beep! Beep! Go to Sleep!, a 2016 ALA Notable Book, and Naughty Ninja Takes a Bath, which spent several days as the #1 children's book on Amazon at the end of 2019.
