Goodreads Summary:
Perfect for Valentine's Day and a heartwarming read for the cold winter months, this cozy animal story explores the universal theme of a mother's love for her child.

When a polar bear leaves the safety and warmth of her cave to travel all over a frozen wonderland, she must be looking for something very important. Could it be delicious silver salmon? A view of the swirling winter sky? A bit of gold? Of course, she is in search of the most precious thing of all: her lost little cub. In this touching story, readers will instantly be enamored with the sweeping illustrations of winter landscapes, endearing polar bear characters, and the resonant message that a mother's love matters most.

 

Review

Picture books always make me smile and Love Matters Most was no different. Simply opening up the book and seeing its gorgeous end papers brought a smile to my lips. It definitely set up the wintery atmosphere for me.

The story was simple and the writing very poetic. I was surprised to see the rhyming scheme! It was clever and made me enjoy the story even more as I read. The words and drawings blended each scene seamlessly together. Every page was beautifully depicted.

It was lovely to follow the mother bear across the snowy landscapes in search of her lost cub. The illustrations were perfect. If you look closely, in her journey through different backdrops, she has a companion in the form of a yellow bird. I loved knowing she wasn't not alone.


Love Matters Most is a superb reading choice for little children during the winter season. I can definitely imagine families settling in in front of a fire with mugs of hot chocolate nearby and this book in hand for a heartwarming read!
