A little boy observes all the different ways people show their love for others.
"I love you," Dimitri tells everyone, from his friends at nursery to the ants in the playground. But why does no one say it back? Dimitri worries no one loves him, until he finds out there are lots of different ways love can spread through the world.
Book of the week
This book is just so, so lovely that I actually found myself welling up when reading it to my children! I absolutely loved the portrayal of nursery life in the illustrations - they are so well observed. The story is gentle and warm and kind-hearted without being saccharine. Perfect for teaching children about empathy but also nice to share at bedtime at the end of a long day.
