Summary

A gorgeous reinvention of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's famous "Sonnet 43" from the bestselling author of the BabyLit board books and the acclaimed illustrator of Over and Under the Snow.

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

Whether in soft sunlight or rain-drizzled night or winter's frost-etched breath, three children share the love and joy of friendship while exploring the wonders of nature.

Bestselling author Jennifer Adams has reimagined Elizabeth Barrett Browning's beloved "Sonnet 43," best known by its opening lines, creating a lyrical, evocative ode to the love of family and friends. Christopher Silas Neal brings the poetry to life with his beautiful, imaginative, and whimsical illustrations.

Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Beginning with the famed opening line, "How do I love thee?/ Let me count the ways," Adams (the My Little Cities series) restages Elizabeth Barrett Browning's sonnet using modernized language. Three children wander and explore outdoors: "I love thee in soft sunlight/ and rain-drizzled night./ I love thee with a whisper/ and a song/ and a ROAR." In clear, spacious scenes featuring grainy textural details by Neal (Everyone), the children lie hand in hand beneath a tree, dash through the rain, and climb on a large stone lion. Finally, they fly via triangle-shaped kites to their neighboring houses, where they are welcomed by their guardians: "And at end of day's/ goodnight kiss./ And I will always love thee." Adams includes brief biographical lines about Browning, as well as the original poem, which she honors through this accessible adaptation. Ages 4-8. (Dec.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
