Love Waves

Written and Illustrated by Rosemary Wells

Rosemary Wells (of Max and Ruby fame) brings us another sweet book called Love Waves. If you love The Kissing Hand or The Hello Goodbye Window, then you will also love this book about a young bunny being separated from his parents as they go to work. A beautiful, shiny, blue love wave is sent out to him to remind him that he is loved. The love wave would also work for grandparents who live a distance from their beloved grandchildren, or children separated from military parents, the list could be endless. The illustrations are colorful and vibrant chalk drawings showing lots of fun details of everyday life. The foiled blue “love wave” carried through the pages really emphasized the main theme and made the “love” a tangible thing. A very sweet book to read to young children.
