When a little girl wonders who loves her, a wise cat supplies detailed and reassuring answers, written by Patricia MacLachlan. The child asks first at nighttime as 'Moonlight falls across her bed.' Amanda Shepherd's illustrations pick up the warm orange and yellow tones of the cat's striped fur, painting emotions across the page.

The smart feline not only reinforces who loves her companion, but gives examples of what they do to show their love for her. And it succeeds, for the child accepts and builds on what she hears ... '"Your cousins play hide-and-seek with you," says the cat. / "We whisper secrets," says the little girl.' As they work their way down a list of loving family members, dog and cat, the little girl becomes drowsy, and eventually dreams, cuddled up with her clever cat.

Kids can't get enough of this kind of reassurance, which they easily extrapolate to the people and pets in their own lives. Read Who Loves Me? together at bedtime to ensure confident, sweet dreams.
