“How Do I Love Thee?”

Houston Chronicle - - STAR -

By Jen­nifer Adams and il­lus­trated by Christo­pher Si­las Neal Harper Collins, $17.99, 32 pages Ages 4-8

Jen­nifer Adams adds a mod­ern take on El­iz­a­beth Bar­rett Brown­ing’s clas­sic son­net about love, “How do I love thee.” Adams writes: “I love thee with a whis­per and a song and a roar,” as Christo­pher Si­las Neal uses vivid wa­ter­color il­lus­tra­tions to show chil­dren of all eth­nic­i­ties em­brac­ing the feel­ing. This is def­i­nitely a pic­ture book young read­ers will want to curl up with night af­ter night.
