To one young narrator, it's the simple things that mean the most, like sharing laughter with a friend, taking family rides in the country, and kissing her mama's arm.

When this poem was first published in 1978 in Honey, I Love and Other Love Poems, Eloise Greenfield reminded us that love can be found just about anywhere. Now, twenty-five years later, she and celebrated children's book artist Jan Spivey Gilchrist present a stunning, newly illustrated anniversary edition that invites readers to celebrate the simple joys of loving and living.

An exuberant poem about the simple things that make life so wondrous, from the garden hose's cool spray in summer to the warmth of a friend's laughter. Originally in a collection of poetry, this one now stands apart as a read-aloud with gorgeous illustrations.

This is a lovely story to read with your child, beautifully written, so expressive, it lingers with you long after you have closed the cover. The artwork is also wonderful. My daughter loves it and we have borrowed it many times from the library.
