I Love You, Little One, by Nancy Tafuri, is a gentle book about mothers and how they love their children. Each section begins with an animal in the deep woods asking its mama if she loves him/her. Very reassuringly the mother answers and tells her child how much she loves him/her. The story progresses to a child in a log cabin deep in the woods making the same inquiry of Mama. This is a good bedtime story to be shared with children.
