What is love?
Out of the mouths of babes . . .  I liked these and I think you will, too.
What Love means to 4-8 year old kids …
Slow down for three minutes to read this. A group of professional people
posed this question to a group of 4 to 8 year-olds , 
‘What does love mean?’ The answers they got were broader, deeper, and more profound than anyone could have ever imagined! See what you think:
‘When my grandmother  got arthritis , she couldn’t bend over and paint 
her toenails anymore.. So my grandfather does it for her all the time , even 
when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.’

Rebecca- age 8

‘When someone loves you , the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’ 

Billy – age 4
‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne
and they go out and smell each other.’
Karl – age 5
‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries
without making them give you any of theirs.’
Chrissy – age 6
‘Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.’ 
Terri – age 4 
‘Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and 
she takes a sip before giving it to him , to make sure the taste is OK.’
Danny – âge 8
‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents 
and just listen.’ 
Bobby – age 7  (Wow!) 
‘If you want to learn to love better , you should start with a friend who you hate. ‘ 
Nikka – age 6 
(we need a few million more Nikka’s on this planet)
‘Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, 
then he wears it everyday.’
Noelle – age 7 
‘Love is like a little 
old woman and a little old man who are still 
friends even after they know each other so well.’
Tommy – age 6
‘During my piano recital , I was 
on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the 
people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. 
He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.’
Cindy – age 8
‘My mommy loves me more than anybody 
You don’t see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night.’
Clare – age 6
‘Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.’ 
Elaine-age 5
‘Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and 
still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford.’ 
Chris – age 7 
‘Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him 
alone all day.’ 
Mary Ann – age 4
‘I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes 
and has to go out and buy new ones.’ 
Lauren – age 4
‘When you love somebody , your eyelashes go up and down and little 
stars come out of you.’ (what an image)
Karen – age 7
‘Love is when Mommy 
sees Daddy on the toilet and she doesn’t think it’s gross..’ 
Mark – age 6
‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. 
But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.’ 
Jessica – age 8 
And the final one: The winner was a four year old child 
whose next door neighbor was an 
elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. 
Upon seeing the man cry , the little boy went into the old 
gentleman’s yard , climbed onto his lap , and just sat there. 
When his Mother asked what he had said to the 
neighbor , the little boy said ,’Nothing , I just helped him cry’
