In art class we make sweet cards
With glitter and some glue.
I make my big heart sparkle
And write "From Me to You!"
Celebrate all the ways we show love--from hugs and kisses to sharing and helping others. Snuggle up with your little ones as you explore the sweet rhymes and whimsical artwork illustrating the special bonds of love between families and friends.
"God fills my life with blessings.
He loves me through and through.
My heart is overflowing
And I want to show love too."
The story revolves around a little girl and how she gives and receives love throughout her day. It starts early in the morning as she wakes and greets the day cuddling with her puppy. She then moves on to her family and friends at preschool. Eventually she's back at home and finishes her day by expressing her thanks for the love she has given and been given.
This is a delightful way to reinforce that we are called to love one another. I think it would make a wonderful Valentine's Day gift but of course love is in style any time of year so it would make a great gift regardless of the occasion.
