What is Love?
For thousands of years, people the world over have answered this question by turning to Saint Paul the apostle and his words on love for the early followers of Christ. Now celebrated illustrator Wendy Anderson Halperin lends her own artistic vision to Paul's immortal words and reasserts his message -- that the love we express can best be seen in what we do and say -- for generations to come.

Subject of sonnets, songs, and soul searching, love is--and is not--many things. "Love is patient. Love is kind. Love is not envious or boastful. Love is not arrogant or rude." In her adaptation of I Corinthians 13, Wendy Anderson Halperin presents the elegantly simple definition of the word "love" the apostle Paul offered 2,000 years ago. She features one of Paul's definitions on each whimsically illustrated two-page spread. Pages are framed in an ornate yet homespun decorative pattern, and covered with divided boxes portraying the dearth of love's benefits on the left (sticking out your tongue, for example), and the bounty of love on the right (a fatherly kiss on the head). Halperin's detailed pencil and watercolor illustrations will provide something new to explore with every reading--dozens of picture stories-within-stories act as a starting point for discussion with children.
Halperin has illustrated many charming books for children, including Marsha Wilson Chall's Bonaparte and Sophie and Rose by Kathryn Lasky. (Ages 4 to 8, or a gift from adult to adult) --Emilie CoulterAbout the Author:
