Lions say "I love you" with a purr and a cuddle.
Wolves say "I love you" with a howl and a huddle.
Bears like to say it with a kiss on the muzzle.
A mama cow says it with a lick and a nuzzle. . . .
Sweet, simple rhymes and glowing illustrations in soft pastels show the touching ways that animalsfrom elephants to giraffes to chickensbond with their families.
