The Ways I Will Love You

In rhyme a mother recites to her newborn baby the many ways she will love and nurture him as he grows. Illustrator Mary Jane Gerber has captured the essence of each stanza in the illustrations that encircle it and on the facing page she portrays mother and child engaged in an activity together.
