My Thoughts and Review:
Many people are familiar with the 5 love languages. This book is about the 5 love languages for kids: gifts, words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, and acts of service. The twins Peyton and Penny have their birthday party at the Perfect Pet Pal Emporium. The twins and their friends find their perfect pet pals that match their own love language. My youngest son enjoyed guessing which animal goes to which kid and finding hidden animals. I was somewhat surprised that a cat is chosen for the kid whose love language is quality time. Cats are usually independent and don't really spend quality time with people :). The book includes the five love languages quiz for kids at the end of the book. It's a wonderful tool to help kids identify their unique love language. Parents will benefit a great deal from discovering that about their children and applying accordingly.

  9. I saw this link through Robin Prate (above). I would love to be considered for this giveaway, I have a brand new nephew and this would be a great addition to his growing library (or the one I intend to build).

    I think my "Love Language" is quality time along with words of affirmation. Very interesting concepts that we all should look into not only for ourselves but for the people we are close too!
