About The Book

A young child learns all the ways they are loved by nature and, most of all, by the person reading to them in this gentle and lyrical picture book reminiscent of Love from the Crayons and Alison McGee’s Someday.

You are loved…by the grass...
As it softens your path...
You are loved…by the wind...
How it plays with your hair.

A little tyke wanders through a welcoming world of sun, grass, and flowers, dancing to bird chirps, spying new friends in the clouds, and waving to waves. After hello-ing stars and giving a hello-there to the moon, the explorer finally returns to someone who loves them as deeply as all the world.

Raves and Reviews

How does nature love you? Let us count the ways.

The comforting refrain at the top of each page turn reads, “You are loved”—by the sun, by the grass, by the wind, by the ocean, and by the stars—each providing a gift to the book’s protagonist. Brimming with pure love and appreciation for the natural world and the children who will become its stewards.
