When Caribou tells Polo that his mother loves him with all her heart, Polo is curious. How is this possible? he wonders. He asks several of his Arctic friends how their mothers love them. Pinpin, the penguin, explains that his mother loves him with all her wings. Felix, the seal, knows that his mother loves him with all her flippers. When Polo finally asks his mother, she explains that she loves him with her whole body -- her fur when she rubs against him; her eyes that shine when she sees him; her nose that smells his warmth when she hugs him; her paws when she tickles him. But more than anything else she loves him with all her heart.

This tender story, accompanied by adorable illustrations, captures the all-encompassing quality of a parent's love. Readers will soon love Polo with all of their hearts, as children snuggle up to their parents to hear this story read again and again.

User Review  - Mara Meyer - Goodreads

There are many children's books that express how much a parent(s) love their child. I love the illustrations and how the book expresses how much this mother bear loves her child, with in every aspect. I think it is very important to understand that no matter what they are loved:) Read full review
