Never Too Little to Loveby Jeanne Willis, Jan Fearnley (Illustrator)
Tiny Too-Little loves someone who's very, very tall, and Tiny wants a kiss. What if he stands on his tiptoes on top of a thimble? What if he stands on his tiptoes on top of a matchbox on top of a thimble? Clever cut-away pages show Tiny's precarious pile growing higher and higher, while the object of his affection stays just out of reach. When the teetering stack finally falls with a crash, will his hopes be dashed? How can a tiny mouse get the kiss he needs?
Whimsical watercolors illustrate a comical, cumulative tale of an amorous mouse who aims impossibly high -- and learns that you're never too little (or too big) to love.

I bought this book for my 3 year old daughter. She has memorized the book. It is truly one of her favorites. It is a fun and cute book.
My toddler absolutley loves this book! This is the one he always brings to me first to read. He especially loves the 'wobble, wobble, wobble...crash' part as I wobble him on my lap and pretend to crash. I'm surprised it isn't marketed to a broader age range.
