Demonstrating that "Hands that do all they can do are also saying 'I love you'," this gentle book by the author of Stories to Solve follows a family through its day. From Mom gently waking her daughter to Dad blowing her a goodnight kiss, and from one sister pouring the other a cup of milk to the neighbors coming over for a dance party, the activities depicted here show babies and toddlers how to interpret and appreciate other people's actions, suggesting that even everyday chores can be performed in a spirit of love. Using an innovative design process, Taeeun Yoo uses linoleum block prints to lay out her images, then digitally finesses the colors; the resulting illustrations are warm and peaceful, recalling classic picture books.
