My mother-in-law gave this book to my son for Valentine's Day, and it is a delight! The watercolor illustrations are just terrific, and the bears who star in the story are so sweet and snuggly-looking, you'll (almost) wish for a product tie-in -- that's saying a lot! Even better, the prose describes the different ways we can show each other love. One of the lines from the book (``Love is when somebody quietly listens to everything you've got to say.'') has served as a gentle reminder to me to be more patient with my son's constant chatter. I can't think of a more loving way to say goodnight to a child than reading this special book out loud.

My one year old absolutely loves this book. It is one of the sweetest and most enjoyable stories I have read. The words just put you in a loving mood. I have read this so many times that I have memorized it. I have tried hiding the book, but she always manages to find it and crawls into my lap to hear it one more time. It is truly "a great bedtime story". I have decide to get another one so when she grows up, she can share it with her children.
