About Love was Hiding:
From neatly tying shoelaces, to patiently waiting at the bottom of the slide; from patching up a skinned knee, to running a bubbly bath, Love was Hiding highlights the sometimes hidden ‘acts of service’ that mothers so lovingly do for their children. Through each turn of the page, children will feel the warmth of their mothers love. Younger children will enjoy the beautiful soft illustrations, and follow the adorable rabbit family in the story. Older readers will relate to the day-in-the-life of the sweet child rabbit and learn more about their mother’s love. A heartfelt picture book that will be treasured by both mothers and children, Love was Hiding is perfect for ages 3 and upwards.
