    What is this picture book about? 

    What is love? And whatever does it mean when we share our love for others?

    Two hedgehogs wonder exactly this as they disappear into the most curious corners of the world, finding not only their sense of adventure...

    But exactly how love is made. 


    Praise for How Love is Made

    "Possibly the most beautiful children's book I have ever read." Tiny T Reads

    "I can't write this review because I'm still crying happy tears over this wondrous book." Bambi Bookworms

    An excerpt from the story

    One day you will ask me what is this love I speak of so, 

    You'll do so with your candour, your whimsical overtones.


    One day you will feel the burden of love and fold gently between its throes,

    You'll do so to remind me that true love never comes and goes.


    My love it wandered through these words, it shared its rawest tones,

    It served to remind me that to love is to never feel alone.

    Absolutely beautiful

    I loved this book as soon as I opened the first page. The illustrations are just so lovely in a way that children would find them simple and so colourful.
    The story is magical and easy for kids to understand. This is a book I will be reading over and over to my three beautiful grandchildren for years to come.
    Thank you for such a lovely book to add to my collection.
