Item description for I Love You With All My Heart by Noris Kern...
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.

Wonderful, heartwarming story! A true classic..... Dec 1, 2007
We purchased this book when our son (now 4 years old) was an infant. It was a big hit with him right from the beginning. Now his 18 month old sister is in love with this book. It's the first book she picks at naptime and bedtime, and she even talks about "Polo" and "Pinpin". This is a wonderful story to share with your children! I like how the author describes the different ways each of the mother animals love their children (much like humans of different religions or different ethnic backgrounds). This is definitely a book that I will keep around in hopes of sharing it with our grandchildren someday.
Perfect gift for a new baby Feb 28, 2006
This is a heartwarming and unique expression of a mother's love...in all it's touching ways.
Very sweet Sep 28, 2005
This is such a very sweet book. I read it to both my 3 1/2 year old and my 2 year old boys. They listen and really enjoy it. I love it and will keep reading it to them!
Cute but WRONG Feb 24, 2005
This is a nice, cute story with one glaring problem. Penguins live in Antarctica near the South Pole...polar bears live in the Arctic near the North Pole!! This book adds to the incorrect assumption that many children AND adults have that polar bears and penguins live in the same area. The writer REALLY should have done a little research before putting this book in print. For that matter, the publisher of this book should be even more embarrassed. I understand that this is not meant to be a non-fiction, educational text. However, it would be nice to not perpetuate incorrect thinking in the readers.
"I Love You With All My Heart" Review Oct 15, 2004
I received this book as a present and I loved it! This is sweet story about a little polar bear named Polo who learns a simple lesson about mother love. The illustrations show a variety of polar animals, all drawn beautifully . You can see a lot of care went into the crewation of this book.
This book should bring a smile to your face (and your child's).
