I mentioned a week ago that we did not have any Valentines books. When I switched out the Christmas books in the living room I made that realization.
I decided to go on the hunt for a great book for the boys to give them the week before Valentines Day.
Here is what I found! I love it!
It is called Where ever you are my love will find you by Nancy Tillman.
I wanted you more than you ever will know,
So I sent love to follow wherever you go.
It’s high as you wish it.
It’s quick as an elf.
You’ll never out grow it…it stretches itself.
So climb any mountain… climb up to the sky!
My love will find you.
My love can fly!
Make a big splash! Go out on a limb!
My love will find you. My love can swim!
It never gets lost, never fades, never ends…
If your working, or playing, or sitting with friends.
You can dance til you’re dizzy…
paint til your blue
There’s no place, not one,
that my love can’t find you.
And someday if you’re lonely,
or someday you’re sad.
or you strike out at baseball, or think you’ve been bad…
just lift up your face, feel the wind in your hair.
That’s me, my sweet baby, my love is right there.
In the sea of green grass…in the smell of the sea.
In the clouds floating by… at the top of the tree… in the sound crickets make at the edn of the day…
“You are loved. you are loved. You are loved,” they all say.
My love is so high, and so wide and so deep, it’s alwas right there, even when you’re asleep.
So hold your head high
and don’t be afriad
to march to the front
of your own parade.
If you’re still my small babe
or you’re all the way grown,
my promise to you is you’re never alone.
You are my angel, my darling, my star
and my love will find you, wherever you are.
Isn’t that the sweetest book ever! The pictures make the words so much prettier as it is beautifully illustrated.
So, that is going to be part of my boy’s Valentines gifts.
If you want your own copy you can get one at Barnes and Noble.
As for the rest of the boy’s Valentines, I am still figuring that out.
