Two paper-over-board titles with rounded corners use frog families to demonstrate familial love: I Love Mommy and I Love Daddy by Lizi Boyd. Each traces a day's activities with Mommy or Daddy, using basic concepts to show a child's love (""Mommy helps me learn new things. I'm never scared with Mommy""). The artwork, rendered in simple bright shapes, reflects the simplicity of the text.
