We recently had the opportunity to review A Perfect Pet for Peyton, a new book by Rick Osborne and Gary Chapman (author of The Five Love Languages, which you KNOW is a book I love). 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.
I was excited to read this book with my kids. It is 64 pages long, and chock full of fun, colorful pictures. There is a hidden details in every large picture, which makes it a seek and find game for the kids, too. There is also a list of animals every couple of pages that the kids are encouraged to find in the illustrations. The book isn’t just a great lesson, it’s a great story, which makes this teaching tool a whole heap of fun for them to listen to, and fun for me to read, too. There are a LOT of sentences with P’s in them. You know how the old rhyme from Mother Goose, “Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers,” could cause your tongue to stumble if you are not careful? Yep. THOSE kind of fun and hilarious sentences are scattered throughout the story.
Both of my kids enjoyed the story, and wanted me to read it a second time right away.
A Perfect Pet for Peyton is available at retailers nationwide and on Amazon and would make an AWESOME Easter gift. The publisher will by launching an interactive app with in-book experience, which will soon be available in the Apple App Store soon!
Read my review of The 5 Love Languages of Children, too.
