Love is such a wonderful feeling. It’s not found just in the words, “I love you.” Love is found all around each and every one of us. Love is how we do things and with whom we do things. Love is those special times like sharing an ice cream with a special friend or sibling on a hot summer day; or taking a walk, just you and Mom; or simply having fun at the beach. Love is a multi coloured entity, a feeling of joy and happiness, something that gets even better with the sharing. Love is the greatest thing we can learn, but we don’t have to speak about love to share it. Hugs and kisses may be the obvious way to demonstrate your love without using words, but there’s a whole lot more inside us all. After all, when you think about it, love is “a feeling you share, It’s not always heard, But you can love and be loved without a single word.”
This is a beautiful message to teach young readers, and one to refresh the hearts and minds of adults as well. Molly O’Malley Pitman’s Love Without Words is both beautiful and charming. Her book is a testament to her belief, her faith in the ability of humanity to show love in many different ways. Written with compassion for her autistic child who, for years, never spoke the words “I love you,” this story clearly explains something that’s so simple it should be obvious: love is not about words, it’s about feelings and the things we do. Coupled with Jeffrey Scott Perdziak’s delightful illustrations, this book is a treasure, something to be shared and enjoyed over and over again. Well done!
