Author Muợn Thị Văn and Stonewall Book Award-winning artist Jessica Love detail all the big and small reasons why we love the people we do within a call-and-response picture book that features families across the spectrum.

“I love you because you tell the best stories.

Because I love you, my best story is you.

What are all the big and small reasons why we love the people we do? And what does it look like when we voice it out loud?

To be read aloud by one or even two people, this affirming prose demonstrates that love is a dialogue. Love is complex. Love is utterly simple.

This is what love looks like.

"Beautifully written and illustrated, this title presents and grows the concept of love in so many ways that it cannot fail to inspire children to assess the ways they share love and are affected by it." — School Library Journal

“In this call-and-response celebration of love’s power to grow and endure, individuals in inclusive pairs tell the other what their bond means to them. All are drawn with grace and humor. Throughout, words and images testify to acceptance, joy, and intimacy over time, and they are worth visiting again and again.” — Publishers Weekly

"Love is what makes the world go round. Tender and emotive . . . the book gently teases out the relationship between love and various qualities like playfulness, emotional strength, forgiveness, courage, and loyalty. An inclusive, affirming, warmhearted book with lots to love." — Kirkus Reviews
