Cyril Squirrel Finds Out About Love

by Jane Evans,

Cyril Squirrel asks lots of questions, but there's one thing that really puzzles Cyril...

"What is love? Can I find it? Keep it? Do I need it?"

With a notebook and a map, Cyril embarks on a quest to find out about love.

"Gone away to find out what love is. Back soon."

Helping children to learn about the ways that love can look, sound or feel, this heart-warming picture book shows some of the many different forms love, friendship and kindness take. Suitable for all children aged 2-6, especially those who may have confused ideas about love, Cyril's adventure includes guidance for adults on how the book can be read with children.
