A Perfect Pet for Peyton by Rick Osborne and Gary Chapman (review and CLOSED giveaway)

on March 26, 2012

About the Book:

This wonderfully imaginative children’s hardcover book by bestselling authors Gary Chapman and Rick Osborne, featuring four-color illustrations (with hidden details!) by Wilson Williams, Jr., will help children learn the importance of love. Based on Gary’s highly successful The 5 Love Languages®, A Perfect Pet for Peyton tells an entertaining and playful story of five children who each, with the help of Mr. Chapman and the unique pets at his special emporium, discover their own personal love language. Children and parents alike will experience firsthand the power of the love languages as they cuddle up and spend precious time together reading this book over and over again.

*Free interactive app with in-book experience COMING SOON to the Apple App Store.

My Opinion:

This is a really cute book, I never really gave any thoughts to the love languages that so many have talked about for so long, but after reading this book it made me think how I can better relate to my children.  The colorful illustrations and hide and seek activities through out kept even my 10 year old’s attention (she enjoys me reading aloud but something that would be perceived as a too young book isn’t always listened to).  The animals are of a wide variety and for the boy in my life the brief area about dinosaurs was an attention grabber.  I’d like to take more time to read through it again and do all the activities that are scattered throughout and my children enjoyed trying to guess what their love language was – I have one whose primary is gifts and secondary is quality time while I have two others whose primaries are physical touch and secondary is quality time.
