How Far Do You Love Me?
A warm portrait of universal parental love begins on a beach when a boy asks his mother, "How far do you love me?"

A world map and the query in each language conclude this tender book.
Love is an emotion that shows in many ways. From the unparalleled love that parents convey to their children to the “smell of crashing waves, and a train whistling …” It is also the “crease in your grandfather’s face.” Through sophisticated, sometimes unsettling images and text, readers are reminded that though it all, “You’ll have love, love, love.” Also see the Spanish version: Amor.
