Enchanting illustrations perfectly complement a tender story about a young boy who has plenty of love to give—and is loved in return—in this gentle, rhythmic picture book illustrated by Tomie dePaola!
A young boy tells his animal friends just how much he loves them, starting with a little mouse who deserves a warm nest and a nibble of cheese and ending when his own father tucks him lovingly into bed. Sweet and comforting, this is the perfect story to share with little ones.
