Kids book on the LOVE Principle

What Love is All About

What does love really mean?

  • How does love feel?

Using animals to depict emotions, kids can learn from family expert Jessica Gaffney what love is all about.  Readers will improve friendships, reduce isolation, open up conversation about bullying, embarrassment and failure in this full colored story.
