A Perfect Pet for Peyton Book Review

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.

The cast of child characters in this whimsical story include: 

Peyton, one of the birthday celebrants, loves to help others, and appreciates it when others do little things for him.
Penny, Peyton's twin sister, who receives love best when others spend quality time with her.

Jayla, one of Penny's close friends, is always saying nice things about people. Her love language is words of affirmation.

Kevin, one of Peyton's close friends, enjoys giving things to pe

Sofia loves to pet the animals, and to show her love for others with special hugs. (Goodreads)

 My Review

  I love children's books and I enjoy watching my nephews learning how to read. This book was much better than I had anticipated. The pictures are great as is the main story line. My seven year old nephew would love this book mainly because on each page it has the reader try to find something in the picture. Think I Spy only interwoven with the story line. Also at the end of the book is when all the children in the book figure out what Love Language they have. I am married and have read Gary's 5 Love Languages. I had no idea how he would fit this into a children's book but it was actually well done. Each person is unique and in the book each child got a pet that fit with their love language. Also, at the very back of the book is a section to find your own love language. 
This is one of the best kids books that I have read in a while, I highly recommend!!
