I Love You Sun / I Love You Moon: Te amo Sol / Te amo Luna (Board book)
Available to Order
A charming board book introducing children to basic animal and nature concepts in both English and Spanish, as well as a lesson in gratitude and tenderness, by the Caldecott Honor-winning author of Strega Nona.
In this simple yet profound story, kids connect with the world around them by pointing at the sol/sun, watering a flor/flower, and feeding a carrot to a conejo/bunny, all the while saying "Te amo/I love you" to each one—and sharing a message of care for all creation. With artwork in Tomie dePaola’s adorable signature style, this is destined to become a favorite addition to every toddler’s library.
