This truly darling book begins as Walter the reindeer admonishes Polo the polar bear not to get sick or worry his mother who “loves you with all of her heart”.
Polo is puzzled. What does it mean to love someone with all of your heart? How do you love with your heart?
Polo sets off towards home to ask his mother these questions. Along the way, he runs into Pinpin the penguin whose mother loves him with her wings, Felix the seal whose mother loves him with her flippers, and Jessie the fox whose mother loves her with her teeth. Finally, Polo reaches home to find out that his mother loves him with all of her fur, eyes, nose, mouth, and most especially her heart.
Conclusion. Wonderful! This book will encourage your children to think of all the ways you love them.
