If I Was the Sunshine

Julie Fogliano has woven together a lovely soft sort of ode to a loved one in a call and answer format. Itโ€™s a quiet melody that is not quite predictable, but depicts an ongoing relationship that draws two people (or things) together. Loren Longโ€™s gorgeous illustrations are vibrant and full of flight, ocean waves, changing seasons, and always, always the ways we interconnect with each other and beyond.

Love is Love is Love is Love

I thought Love was a beautiful and inclusive ode to the many ways that we see love in our every day.  What I loved most was how tactile everything felt in the story.  De La Pena spun his words so I could see every image in my mind--besides what was on the page--and what's more I could feel the scent in the air, hear the music notes being played.
