Show love in different ways

Heart Pattern Image

It’s February! The time of the year where you can give heart-shaped cards and candies to those you admire and love. But there are other ways to show others that you love and care about them.

Sometimes love is a treat from a family member, or a warm hug from a friend. Sometimes it's a hand to hold when you're afraid, or a shoulder to cry on when you're sad. Love can be singing loudly with friends or family, or quiet bedtime stories as you fall asleep. And often, love is shown simply by saying 'I Love You'. 

Below are some books that show love and care in all kinds of ways between family and friends. You can click the book covers for a link to the title in our catalog.
