Very young kids and doting parents and grandparents will enjoy reading this sweet little poem of a book. There's not much of a story, and it may be best as a valentine, but if you're a fan of Eric Carle (and who isn't?), you'll be happy to have a new book of his to share with your tot.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
