Two butter-colored birds with curvy shapes that mimic commas tweet their love for one another in this board book that counts down from 10 to one. In Reagan’s sleek, perky graphics, the hearts transform into hot-air balloons and kites (“Six light hearts/ float up to the sky./ Five playful hearts/ ride on by”), appear along a line of musical notation, and slide down a teeter totter on skinny legs (“Seven silly hearts, love to play”). A single heart-shaped pop-up concludes this affectionate, understated ode. Up to age 4. (Dec.)
