Want students to read more? So does Townsend Press. That's why we created the Townsend Library—a collection of high-interest paperbacks that engage readers. These books feature compelling human stories and include an afterword and author commentary to deepen readers' enjoyment. Acclaimed by educators and readers alike, each Townsend Library book is available to schools for $3.
It can’t be seen, heard, touched, or tasted. You can’t measure it, weigh it, buy it, or package it. And yet who would deny that love is the most powerful force on earth? It makes us do crazy, wonderful things. It breaks our hearts, humbles us, lifts us up, and fills us with unspeakable joy. Most mysteriously of all, it exists in an infinite variety of forms.
In this collection of essays, you’ll read about love in a few of its many guises: romantic love, parental love, family love; the love of a teacher for her students, of a dog for its human, of strangers thrown together for a brief encounter. As you enjoy these accounts of love, celebrate the opportunities you have to give, and receive, love in your own life.
