A Perfect Pet for Peyton {Book Review and GIVEAWAY!}

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.

My children and I had the opportunity to review the children's book A Perfect Pet for Peyton! This is the children's rendition of the 5 Love Languages by best selling author Gary Chapman. 

I am currently reading 5 Love Language for Children and was pleasantly surprised how they were able to connect it into a children's book.

It is a simple story that only took me about 10 minutes or so read. I had each of  my children ages 0-11 listening. :) (I must say I was getting a little tongue tied with all the "P" when they were in search of who would be their "perfect pet pal"). The story was engaging enough to keep all their attention. Especially my 5 and 7 year old! I had to ask them to move back from the book so others could see the pages :)
The author also incorporated fun search games on each page, which two of my younger kids were working together on after the story finished.

My children's review of the book:

"I like the idea of an emporium that has a pet store, zoo, and theme park all in one place." 
- Elijah 11 yrs
"Liked that their was a bug on every page! They were hard to find!"
 -Lydia 9 yrs
"I like that they got a pet matching their attitude..." 
-Elizabeth 7 yrs
"Like the dog because I really like dogs." 
Jason 5 yrs 
(which is a very helpful dog at the end of the story)
Hadassah and little Mordecai just had smiles ;-)

Overall, it was an engaging book that will definitely be looked at again and again! I also like that it is hard back which will help it last many years. By the end of the book the children understood the concept of five love languages: Physical Touch, Words of Affirmation, Acts of Service, Gifts, and Quality Time.
