A cab driver plays love softly on his radio
while you bounce in back with the bumps of the city
and everything smells new, and it smells like life."

This one is being pushed like crazy by everybody, but it isn’t just hype. “Love” is a beautiful picture book that probably means more the older you are, but my 7 year old still latched onto the overriding concept of love. She even told me I skipped a page, picked up her dog, and said “Love is two...
