Acclaimed children's author Joanne Ryder has written an I love you book just in time for Valentine's Day. In this sweet picture book, a mother bear talks to her cub in pure language that carries a strong message of unconditional paternal love:

'There are so many bears in the world, dear,
but there's no other one that will do.
You are the bear of my heart, dear,
And I am the one who loves you.

And she continues with ...
'Paw in paw we will greet every morning.
Paw in paw, we will meet every day.
You are the bear of my heart, dear,
And nothing can take that away.

The simple drawings perfectly complement the simple text and, with soft shading, capture the love between mother and child.
