Growing Up With Love, the debut book from Kate Moore Purvis is a sweet, rhyming story
about a little girl learning life lessons from her four-legged best friend.
More importantly, it is a gentle reminder for the young and old alike that love is patient and love is kind –
and it’s always the right choice! 

Meet Emma!

She’s new to the world of kindergarten – and loves it.
But one day her teacher introduces a new girl to the class
and everything changes.

Bea is different, to say the least, and none of Emma’s friends like her.
In fact, they laugh at her, pick on her, and call her ugly names.
Will Emma join in or does she follow her heart?

Growing Up With Love is now available!

    "A wonderful message written in perfect rhyme. As a teacher and mother of two, I'm always looking for wonderful read aloud books. The sweet message, engaging illustrations, and beautiful rhymes of this story make it a perfect book to add to any bookshelf! It was an instant favorite of my 4 year old's and we have been reading it daily since we got it!"

    "Growing up With Love gives young readers the always relevant message of choosing kindness. From the first page, readers will experience the rhythmically delivered story of Emma and her dog, Love, elevated with most enchanting illustrations! This book is a definite "read it again" story for children and deserves to be shared far and wide.
