Love is . . . a journey! Love is . . . strong! Love embraces all in this fun addition to the acclaimed Abrams Block Book series.
In this sturdy board book, young readers explore all love has to offer. Featuring elephants, sea otters, swans, giraffes, sloths, penguins, kangaroos, pandas, hippos, foxes, golden eagles, and more, Loveblock showcases the many ways affection can be shown. Watch pandas leaning lovingly on one another as you read “Love is steady. You can lean on me.” Take a dive with hippos as you turn the page to reveal the phrase “love runs deep.”
Like other books in the Block Book series such as Alphablock, Cityblock, Dinoblock, and Buildablock, Loveblock features die-cut shapes on every spread and has durable, interactive fold-out pages, perfect for little hands. And with bright, animated, retro-inspired artwork by Peski Studio, this is a must-have book for new parents, grandparents, or anyone looking to spread a little love during Valentine’s Day! “Because where there is love, there is life. . . . And where there is life, there is love.”
