An ALA Notable Children's Book

HONEY, I LOVE
and other love poems

Ages 7 to 11

Love don't mean all that kissing
Like on television
Love Means Daddy
Saying keep your mama company
    till I get back
And me doing it

Sixteen poems tell of love and the simple joys of everyday life, seen through the eyes of a child: playing with a friend, skipping rope, riding on a train--or keeping Mama company till Daddy gets back.

Each of these sixteen "love poems" is spoken straight from the heart of a child. Riding on a train, listening to music, playing with a friend...each poem elicits a new appreciation of the rich content of everyday life. And each poem is accompanied by a beautiful drawing, both portrait and panorama, that deepens the insights contained in the singing words.
For the first time Eloise Greenfield and Diane and Leo Dillon have combined teir rich talents to bring children a book that shows them the joys that come from seeing with a poet's eyes--the eyes of love.

This is an excellent book. I read it over 17 years ago when my 1st child was younger. I remember it had a tape that went with it. Each poem was put to music. It was awesome...still got the book but not the music. Wish I could get a hold of the music again to give as a gift to my 2 yr. old daughter who likes to read the library book version, which only has one poem...
