Love is patient,
Love is kind . . .
Love never ends.
Featuring the same little girl from All Creatures Great and Small, Naoko Stoop’s charming companion volume contains the text from Corinthians 13:4-8. Though used often at weddings, this verse also creates the perfect child-focused story about friendship, generosity, and the permanence of love. A self-taught artist, Stoop paints on planks of wood, which she buys specifically for their unique character. No canvas is ever the same!
This is the fourth in a quartet of spiritually oriented books to treasure, along with All Creatures Great and Small, Noah’s Ark, and Jonah and the Big Fish.
