Fabulous Jun 2, 2008
I always try to keep an extra of this book on the shelf for when an anniversary comes around for special people. I received this book years ago and just love it. Everyone I have given this book to just loves the verse and the beautiful graphics. I am so happy I can always go to this site.com when I need more copies.

An excellent and heartwarming giftbook Mar 8, 2006
Though Older Love is written and presented in the style of a picturebook, with gentle two-color illustrations and only a verse or two on each page, Older Love is not meant specifically for children or beginning readers, but rather for readers of all ages, as it celebrates the joy of a golden years relationship. The text is a poem about bonds that transcends age, and the illustrations have a soft and inviting quality to them. An excellent and heartwarming giftbook. "Older love is hands and hearts and souls as they unite / every morning, every evening, / every day and every night. / Like the sun and moon and stars that light the heavens up above, / these two lives will shine together, / with the glow of older love."
To celebrate older love! Oct 19, 2005
Whew! What wonderful, choice words Warren Hanson uses to describe love--from first love to "older love," whether he means being in love again when you are older, or the love between people who have been together for years upon years.
His subtle rhyme describes love, especially older love, using images of wine, hands, old shoes, and so much more.
My favorite page says: "Yes, our faces show the traces of the years that have gone by, But it's hard to see the wrinkles with a twinkle in your eye." His "aging together" is so true; just ask me after almost 38 years of marriage (to the same guy!)
The older love concept is so beautifully illustrated--it's simply great knowing that everyone who has a long love will find themselves in this book.
Hanson is both the author and illustrator--as he did on his amazing The Next Place. He is well known for his illustrations on now-famous The Christmas Cup of Tea.
Armchair Interviews says: Gift someone special any day, or on their special day because any day is a good time to celebrate love, whether new or older love.

Warren Hanson has truly captured the true meaning of love. Written in poetic form makes it for easy reading. As he walks us through true love from the very beginning with all its passion to our tender quiet love in our twilight years, one can see ones own true love unfold. I can't imagine anyone putting this book down with a dry eye. What a beautiful, beautiful gift to all. The illustrations are superb. What a gem
