Review: This is Love

Love can be picked and put in a jar.

Love can be made or sung to a star.

Love is a coat that’s keeping you warm.

Love keeps you dry and safe in the storm.

Love is so many things, and Zanni Louise and Sasha Haddad explore all of them in this heart-filled picture book.

With delicious rhyme on every page, readers will explore what love means in lots of different ways. It’s a simple story that sinks deep. It’s a joyful, warming reading experience to share with your little ones.

I adore Haddad’s illustrations in this book. The funky colours are soft and inviting. Smooth lines and stunning detail make every page turn a joy. You’ll want to take your time with this one – really explore each page and the translation from words to pictures. There is so much to see and so many characters in each scene to connect with.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, This is Love is a perfect book to gift to your loved ones. It will bring smiles to faces and is sure to earn you a giant hug every time you read it.
