would take to reach the
highest point in space,
that's how deep my love
is, dear, that's how far
my love would trace."
"A warm-hearted, lyrical book about the limitlessness of love."
It is a children's book, but as is often the case, it is enjoyable and applicable for all ages. (We're all only older, taller, ever-so-slightly-more-knowledgeable children, throughout our lives after all, aren't we?)
The "limitlessness" of love is probably something everyone could use a reminder about every so often, and what better way than through a simple song accompanied by touching, adorable, and colourful art?
It was released a couple of years ago but I hadn't seen it on the shelf until today, and as soon as I did I had to pick it up. Childish or not, the simplicity of the words and the pure, bare truth in them draws you in and is a warming, comforting reminder that you are loved - fully, truly, warmly, and glamorously - and it is a striking and beautiful thing.
The perfect book to raise your spirits on a dreary, no good, very bad day, because we all have those, sometimes all too often.
