"I love you hugely like a whale. I love you shyly like a quail." So begins this sweet picture book by Lynn Parrish Sutton and Hazel Mitchell (published by Kane Miller). This is a darling, simple book with lyrical rhythm and rhyme - it's a perfect last-book-before-bedtime choice.
One thing I love about this book is that it combines everyday animals - the cat, the puppy - with animals that will be new to most toddlers, like larks and sloths.
It's that book that makes you muse about all the different ways you love your kids.
