Praise For…


“A delightful meditation on love and community. The prose reads like a song, and the story is simple and universal. ...Useful as a soothing bedtime selection or as a short read-aloud. Perfect for sharing on Valentine’s Day and every day.”
— School Library Journal

“Parents and their little ones will love this disarmingly simple poem about the power of love and community to vanquish fear and darkness. ...Berger’s message is gorgeously emphasized by collage illustrations that capture the essence of the words.”
— Booklist

“Berger populates this buoying book with people of all hues, genders, and love configurations. ...An earnest, moving expression of what the world needs now—and what children have always needed: love, sweet love.”
— Kirkus Reviews
