Love All That is Good: The Senses

Marilyn Wilkinson

Meet Alice, a cool 6-year-old girl from Aotearoa New Zealand. She loves her country and her family so much! Alice teaches us about something called "aroha," which means love in the language of the Māori people.

Alice shows us how she loves using her body by climbing trees, running, and riding her bike. She also loves feeling things with her body, like patting her cats and swimming in cool water. Alice's eyes help her see exciting things like books and stars, while her ears hear the birds sing and her friends talk.

Alice loves the beautiful smells of flowers, biscuits, and perfume. She also loves the delicious tastes of ice cream, apricots, and salmon bagels. Yum! In Aotearoa, there are special festivals like Matariki, Christmas, and Easter where people share delicious food with love.

This story encourages children to do, feel, see, smell, taste and love like Alice.

Alice tells us about Jesus, who was kind and loving to everyone. He taught us to love each other, especially other children whose bodies can't do all she can do. At Christmas, we remember when Jesus was born, and at Easter, we think about how Jesus showed us love until the end of his life.

Before saying goodnight, Alice reminds us to rest well so we can wake up happy and ready to love again.
