Finding that one true love

In Annabelle's Love, Annabelle is a very curious girl. Just like any other little girl, she loves when her mom tells her stories.

But her mom tells her stories of a true love that is forever, filled with bright colors, and is like a cozy cushion filled with sweet, fluffy stuff. She can't help but wonder who would love her this much and she can hardly wait to find that true love. But when her mother tells her that she feels love this way now, Annabelle doesn't understand.

Not until Annabelle's mom walks her to a mirror does she finally figure out the one who will truly love her forever and ever.

Jenny Ramirez Hart has written a tale that will remind the young girl in your life of the importance of loving herself. After all, if you don't love yourself, how will you be able to love others? The book reinforces such important lessons as identity, self-worth, and loving the skin you're in--all valuable lessons important in today's society.
