This warm picture book shows love through the days shared by a little girl and her grandmother. The simple kisses, kitchen hugs, skies filled with butterflies, moonlit waves, and constellations all reflect the joy of family and nature.

Description

From bestselling author Ruth Forman and Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award Honoree Raissa Figueroa comes a lyrical and vibrant picture book honoring the love and bond that exists between family and child even in complicated times.

Told from Nana’s point of view, this simple, affirming, and comforting read-aloud shows how every family’s love is natural and connected to the world around us. Just as the sun loves the day, the moon loves the waves, and the night sky loves the star glow…so is our love for each other: innate, wondrous, and infinite.

Praise for Like So

A “rhapsodic work, which takes on a sweeping dimension through Forman’s poetic descriptions of a natural world that’s built on affection. . . a tender and expansive loving-kindness”.
 
— Publishers Weekly

“As with all of Forman’s work, essential truths and acts of love are hidden in plain sight, and in Figueroa’s purehearted scenes, rendering intimate details of family life, quality time, and authentic goodness.”
— School Library Journal

“Soothing and affirming, this is an ideal offering for a loving adult to share with a little one.”
— Kirkus Reviews
