So many books. So little time.
A picture is worth a thousand words
Words can create pictures too.
The power of imagination.
A good conversation is a good life
Random thoughts on the how and why of writing
"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways", wrote Elizabeth Barrett Browning.
This treasure of a book is a bashful young boy's counting of the ways; each gift an expression of his love.
Love knows. Love cares. Love knows because it cares:
"This is not a Valentine, since sparkle and pink glitter are not your favorite colors."
Love is forever:
"This is not a Valentine, since I don’t only like you today. I like you tomorrow, and next Tuesday and last week, too."
Read that sentence again, dear reader. "I like you tomorrow, and next Tuesday and last week, too."
Love makes time timeless.
Flawless word choice, evocative illustrations. The cover says it all. Pay attention to picture of the school bus at the start, and at the end. See the difference?
No, this is not a Valentine. It is an outpouring from the heart, a love story as all love stories should be.
