A Perfect Pet for Payton: Book Review & Giveaway!

Are you familiar with the 5 Love Languages books? The 5 Love Languages is written by Gary Chapman, and he suggests that there are 5 different love languages that we all speak, and we feel love when people speak to us in our primary love language. They are very insightful books and help you understand how to show love to your spouse and kids in a way that works best for them personally!


Well, this adorable book, A Perfect Pet for Payton, is a children's book that teaches kids about the 5 love languages in a way that is fun and easy for them to understand. Join twins Peyton and Penny on their amazing birthday adventure!  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.

"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 little guy loved looking at the beautiful illustrations, as well as searching for special items noted in the book, on each page. My only reservation about this book is that it is a very long children's book, so for younger children, you would probably need to read it over a few nights to finish it. Older kids would have a longer attention span. Aside from that, I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the 5 Love Languages, or for anyone who loves a great family fun, and educational book.

Buy It: You can purchase this book on Amazon.com
