Happy Saturday, Reading Nook!
It's almost Valentine's Day, which means hearts! Flowers! And best of all, funny books about love.

With good humor and carefully selected pictures, Muldrow reminds us just why Little Golden Books are considered classics, while also providing some funny and charming lessons in life and love.
Like the previous books in the series, author Diana Muldrow draws upon classic Little Golden Book illustrations to help shape the storyline for this book. Pulling from favorites like Tootle, The Color Kittens and The Friendly Book, Mudrow reassures readers that while love can often be challenging, the process of finding love can be a heartwarming, joyful experience.
Readers will likely enjoy Muldrow's take on the merits (and occasional downsides) of romantic love, and her recognition that love will always be the magical, driving force between family and friends as well. Love really is all around a person, and you just have to seek it out to let it work its magic.
Bottom line: this is a book that really reassures readers that love - even if you don't have it right now - is a beautiful thing worth fighting for, and you'll be glad to have it in your life.
Using her trademark warmth and good humor (and perfectly selected Little Golden book drawings!), Diane Muldrow shows readers just how love can be a wonderful, delightful thing that is worth fighting for, regardless of who you are!
It's pretty much impossible not to fall in love with how love is potrayed in this book, and I can absolutely guarantee you'll want to share it with the special person in your life.
