Simple, repetitive text comforts as the illustrations astound. This sweet book about grandmothers, love, and the natural world is perfect for readers of all ages.

— Chelsea

From bestselling author Ruth Forman and Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award Honoree Raissa Figueroa comes a lyrical and vibrant picture book honoring the love and bond that exists between family and child even in complicated times.

Told from Nana’s point of view, this simple, affirming, and comforting read-aloud shows how every family’s love is natural and connected to the world around us. Just as the sun loves the day, the moon loves the waves, and the night sky loves the star glow…so is our love for each other: innate, wondrous, and infinite.
Ruth Forman is the author of bestselling children’s books CurlsGlowBloomOursOne, and Like So, as well as award-winning poetry collections We Are the Young Magicians and Renaissance

— School Library Journal
