Author Muợn Thị Văn and Stonewall Book Award–winning artist Jessica Love detail all the big and small reasons why we love the people we do within an affirming call-and-response format that features families across the spectrum. 

I love you because you tell the best stories.Because I love you, my best story is you.What are all the big and small reasons we love the people we do? And what does it look like when we voice it out loud?To be read aloud by one or even two people, this affirming call-and-response prose by Muợn Thị Văn and Jessica Love demonstrates that love is a dialogue. Love is complex. Love is utterly simple.This is what love looks like.
