內容簡介 愛 永不斷的線 女孩Tess的家充滿愛—爸爸愛媽媽，媽媽愛爸爸。Tess愛爸爸、媽媽也愛弟弟Tom和狗狗Diggie。上學時，Tess在校門和媽媽分開時問：「我們不在一起時，愛，會不見嗎？」 媽媽說，愛就像一條線，有需要的時候就會出現。學校分組美勞活動，要合力將紙條捲一捲，做成一條龍。Tess和同組的男同學聊到媽媽說的，愛就像線的故事。男孩說，我也有一條線，通往天堂…是一條很長很長的線。而回家時，Tess發現愛之線好像斷了，怎麼辦呢？ Funny, emotional and uplifting picture book about separation and love, to help children understand their emotions. Everyone loves everyone in Tess's house, but when Tess has to leave for school for the very first time, she is worried that her family's love might not stretch that far. Mum explains that love is like a string, it connects people together even when they are far away. At school Tess notices that all the children have strings! Some are new, some are old, some stretch a long way, and some even stretch right up into the sky. But what happens when a string breaks? Love is the third in a trio of feel-good picture books from author Corrinne Averiss (Joy (2018), Hope (2019)) - a pure delight from start to finish. A wonderful story that subtly tackles difficult topics of death, grief, separation and overcoming anxiety.
