From Rick Osborne: Thank you to all the Mom Bloggers out there who took the time to review our book. We are so glad that you and your children are enjoying it as much as our team enjoyed creating it. Thank you to Wilson Williams Jr. for your beautiful Illustrations. They are certainly capturing both children’s & parent’s attention. And lastly, thank you to Jill Ronsley for designing the interior. Your use of placement, color and fun fonts pulled this book together in the most fantastic way.

I read this book to my Littles, and the creative illustrations by Wilson Williams, Jr, captured their imaginations with hidden surprises and little puzzles to work out. It was hard to read without getting a little choked up (I’m an emotional reader, I’ve learned) over Peyton’s building worries, and true tears of happiness as he is matched in the end with his perfect pet. It helped concrete some of the discussions we’d been having of late about Love Languages and how people feel that others love them… and sparked a discussion on how we need to think of (put) others before ourselves.

There is one warning, if you are an emotional reader like me (does Robert Munsch’s I Love You Forever book choke you up?) then you might want to get Daddy to read it to your Littles. My throat was killing me from swallowing back tears!!! But it’s an EXCELLENT book, and I HIGHLY recommend it for introducing (and reminding) children to the subject of Love Languages and the importance of speaking someone else’s love language to them.

The book includes a short quiz at the back to help a child identify their primary love language.

Chaeli’s best thing about it? There is a BUG hidden on all the pages with full pictures. She wouldn’t let me turn the page till she’d found it! Greyson’s? Well, he loved that all the children received a pet. He then went on to say that HE wanted to build a Pet Emporium when he grows up “so that I can help other kids find their perfect pet too!” (there’s those Acts of Service at play again, LOL!)

Only downside? It got both Littles back on the topic of getting new guinea pigs (ours died last spring, and they’ve periodically brought up the subject of getting new ones… I thought it’d blown over… but thanks to Mr. Chapman, guinea pigs are back on the table… well, you know what I mean. *grin*)

Highly recommended!

In my opinion, I loved this book! It was a clever story and a wonderful teaching tool. I loved the illustrations and thought that the pictures were interactive. There were many activities within the book as well. I enjoyed helping Eli find the insects, birds, reptiles, dinosaurs, etc. It was exciting and a way to teach the animals to my son. It was also fun to spend some time with twins, Peyton and Penny on their birthday. They go to Mr Chapman’s Perfect Pet Pal Emporium for their birthday which was on their wish list. I definitely wanted to take Eli to this exciting place. This book was engaging and will definitely be on our favorite book list.

A Perfect Pet for Peyton is a discovery book and a way to learn the five love languages. Do you know your love language? At the end of the book, there is a quiz for the kids to discover their own love language. My love language is gifts. I love giving and receiving gifts. Now I understand why this book received the #1 New York Times Bestselling Author recognition. It was a fantastic story!

I absolutely LOVE this book!  It is just the cutest book I have seen in awhile.  I love the colorful illustrations and how the book is so interactive.  There is something to do on every page, besides just reading the cute story.  If your kids enjoy seek and find activities, they will love this book.  This will be a book we will treasure for many years to come and will be proud to have it on and off of our bookshelf. I know it will be off of our bookshelf often because someone will be busy reading it!

The children (ages 8, 6, and 2) cuddled up with this book as soon as it arrived. The kids were happy to sit quietly to look for the hidden details on each page (which was a relief, as we were getting antsy after weeks of illness but weren’t really well enough to get out there in the real world, yet. Anything to occupy their time was a plus). However, the special part was that the kids really did get the 5 Love Languages after reading this book and we had a lovely discussion on how different people feel love differently. Liam (8) was quick to tell me that his Love Language was quality time and Morgaine (6) said that her love language was probably gifts. These are absolutely the languages that I would have chosen for them so the really did get it!

My niece loves this book. For her, the story is exciting and she can relate to Penny and Payton. Each page is chock full of vibrant pictures and activities we can do together. It isn’t just an average story time, there is a lot of discussion around the unfolding story and the games we get to play. We look for bugs and dinosaurs and she squeals in delight when we find that silly lady bug that has been hiding.

But what I love about this book is not only how imaginative it is, and how much it allows us to do together, but the message it gives her and the lesson it teaches her. It helps me teach her how to put her needs and emotions into words, label them and express them. It helps to lay a foundation for how to care for herself and others for the rest of her life. I love this book.

As soon as A Perfect Pet for Peyton arrived the kids were excited and begged for me to read it to them… and that is just what I did. The illustrations are absolutely wonderful and my kids loved all of the animals throughout the book (if a book has animals they are hooked).

I love interactive books that get the kids involved and A Perfect Pet for Peyton does that too. On each page of the book there is a hidden insect. My kids just loved searching for them as I was reading and they found every single one. There are also animal scavenger hunts on the pages where the twins and their friends are exploring the emporium attractions.

This is definitely a book we will be reading a lot since this year one of our primary goals is working on character, virtues and behavior. Since I already knew about the 5 love languages and already know what each of their primary love languages are I can tell you that speaking your childs love language will result in better behavior. Believe me knowing what your spouse and childs love language is will change your lives and relationships.

Gwyns review (6 yrs old):

My favorite part of the book was at the end where Pennys perfect pet rides around the house on Peytons perfect pet. I also like the cute ferret.

Rowyns review (4 yrs old):

My favorite part was looking for the bugs.

As soon as the book arrived, my 8 year old daughter curled up and began reading it with one of the boys. I later cuddled up and discussed the book with her. We looked at some of the questions in the 5 Love Languages Quiz in the back of the book to help her identify her own personal love language. She quickly told me, “Mom, I know what my love language is. Quality Time…because I like to spend time with the boys [my brothers].” Of course, I have to remind her of this when she gets upset about her brothers coming in her room. {grins} The Love Languages Mystery Game for Children even confirmed her love language! The kids and I really enjoyed A Perfect Pet for Peyton! It provides a fun, engaging way for kids to identify how they give and receive love best!

I have to admit, I didn’t even read the description of A Perfect Pet for Peyton before I signed up for this review. I knew I wanted to review the Five Love Languages, and my kids love books, so sure, I’m always up for reviewing a good kids’ book!

So I was THRILLED to see just what an AWESOME book this was when it came! This is not your typical picture book! The pictures aren’t just PICTURES!!! Every page has something to look for, or something else fun to do, plus the story is great! Even my “we’re too old for picture books” 9-year-olds loved it, and happily listened to it a second time!

The story is about twins who go to Mr. Chapman’s “Perfect Pet Pal Emporium” for their birthday party. As they visit the petting zoo, aquarium, etc etc etc, and have their party, the book shows how each of the children at the party shows their love for their friends in different ways. At the end of the party Mr. Chapman presents each child at the party with a new pet that is perfectly matched to that child’s love language.

MiniMe is completely enthralled with the concept of Love Languages, and HER primary love language(s). Sassy, not-so-much, but both enjoyed the story and figuring out each of the character’s love language. The concept of love languages was, naturally, over Little Bit’s head, but she loved the pictures and being able to find things in the pictures. So this book was an all-around hit!!!

It was a great way to open dialogue with the older girls about not only accepting love, but showing love to others in a variety of ways to meet everyone’s needs. The back of the book includes some questions to help parents and children determine each child’s love language.

This book is based on The 5 Love Languages series by Gary Chapman.  It is an entertaining adventure.  My kids and I followed along with Penny and Peyton as they had a very special birthday party at the “Perfect Pet Pal Emporium.”   It is a place that is, as the book describes, “like a zoo, a museum, a theme park, and a birthday party palace all in one place.”  Peyton wants a special pet, not a boring pet.  He thinks it will be hard to find the perfect pet for him, but he is in for some surprises.

My kids loved the characters of Penny and Peyton, but even more love the variety of animals and “pets” throughout the book.  My four year old wants to “read” it herself several times a day.  She continues to find new and interesting things on each of the wonderfully illustrated pages.  Even as I’m typing this review, she’s trying to grab the book out of my hand to “read” again! lol

I personally love the amazing illustrations, the lessons the story has, as well as how entertaining it is for me as a parent to read over and over with my children.  I also really like the 5 Love Languages for kids portion at the end of the book.  My kids had fun trying to answer the questions and figure out each of their personal love languages!

A wonderful story for young and old!  I highly recommend this book!

This book would be great for young school age children. Amber absolutely *adores* it and we’ve been reading it over and over and OVER for bedtime each night. It’s a little on the longer side–but the amazing sounding pet emporium and all the different animals keep her entranced! Even though she’s a bit young to grasp the concept of love languages it’s still great for her to be learning the different ways we have to show people that we love them!

A Perfect Pet for Peyton came to our house at just the right time. We’ve just brought our youngest son home to do home schooling for the rest of his Grade 4 year. This book is another step in our journey to helping him (and us) to understand how he’s wired, and to help him to be able to thrive in as many ways as possible.

The book is hard cover, brightly illustrated, and wonderfully written. My oldest son, our artist, noticed details in the children’s faces in the book, like shiny eyes that make the characters look alive, and hand placement showing real movement, etc.

I like that there are little things to do throughout the book – find insects on the pictures, count how many of these things you see, etc. It wasn’t important for my big kiddos, but while reading the whole book with MrCutie out loud, he did much better when we could stop and look around at things. It helped to keep him IN the book and not get overwhelmed.

I had a general idea about what my kiddos Love Languages were, but reading the book with them and talking through the languages has helped me to understand where they see themselves. They all liked the book a lot. Here’s what they had to say about it:

MrCutie - I thought that this book was very inspirational. Don’t ask me how though. HAHA!  It was a bit funny. I thought the monkey and the parrot were cute. And the dolphin was really neat. The book was really full of surprises. I liked it when Mr. Chapman said, “Oh, our Moose Mortimer probably got into the pantry again.”  I thought it was cool to learn about the 5 love languages. I think my #1 language is Gifts and #2 is Words of Affirmation. I think my brother’s language is Quality Time (with his Legos). I think my sister’s language is Physical Touch or Words of Affirmation. I would recommend this book to other kids.

BudBud - It’s a good book for if you’re trying to figure out which love language you are. It’s cool about what different pets can do, too, and if they are trained properly. Alex [the dog] is helpful and can do tricks. Monkeys can hold lots of stuff, so it would be able to give lots of gifts. Parrots are very smart and some can talk so it would be good for words of affirmation. Cats just like to be snuggled, so that would be good for quality time. I really liked it how there was a separate animal for everyone and Peyton didn’t think he was going to get one, so he was scared and sad. And the guy came back out and he was like You’re Right [about Peyton getting his own special pet]. I liked it where the dog is helping him clean up because he looks so cute an innocent, and it’s a nice thing to do. I think my love language is #1 Words of Affirmation and #2 Gifts. I think my sister’s language is Quality Time. I think my brother’s language is Gifts. I would recommend this book to my friends, and anybody 12 and under.

Sweetheart - I liked this book. It’s very cute, but I feel bad for Peyton when he doesn’t think he can get a perfect pet pal. I liked when Peyton finally got his pet. I wish we could get perfect pet pals. That would be so cool. I think my top love language is either Words of Affirmation or Quality Time.  I think BudBud’s language is Physical Touch.  MrCutie already told me that his language is “Gifts”. I would recommend this book to my friends. I think the book would be great for people old enough to understand (like 7 year olds and over).

I would recommend this book for parents who are wanting to learn more about their kiddos, and to help encourage their kiddos to understand how they are made better. A Perfect Pet for Peyton is a fun, easy-to-read story that teaches a lot about how people like to have love and care expressed to them. It’s a valuable resource in any parents’ toolkit!

I was really excited for the opportunity to review  A Perfect Pet For Peyton. And the book did not disappoint. My children were hooked from page one. My two youngest were not only fascinated with the story line, but also enjoyed the very vivid illustrations. For added fun there are different things for the children to find that are hidden within the illustrations. This was a favorite for my 3 and 5-year-old sons. My 10-year-old daughter really enjoyed taking the The Five Love Languages For Kids Quiz. This section provides a more in-depth look at what defines the 5 love languages. She really spent some time thinking and asking a lot of questions after reading over this section several times. This is a book we will be reading at least a few times a week as it has prompted some great conversations and prayers in my children!

Dr. Gary Chapman has joined up with Rick Osborne and Wilson Williams to craft a picture book to help children grasp this relationship-altering knowledge. As with the other 5 love languages materials, this book is top notch in appearance and in clear presentation of the material.

My kids always get excited about packages, but sometimes when they see it is “just another book” they head off their separate directions. Not so this time. As soon as my 8yo got it out of the package, her older sister and younger brother were begging me to take a break and read to them. With my toddler copying, “Book, book.” How could I refuse?

The story takes the reader through the birthday celebration of a set of twins, a boy and girl, who are excited about the day ahead when they would celebrate their birthday at Mr. Chapman’s Perfect Pet Pal Emporium. Throughout the day as they interact with the animals and their birthday party guests, you clearly see the various love languages exemplified in each character. An example of each love language comes to life as the children hug, compliment, help, give, and just enjoy each others company.  And, in the process they each find an animal that is a living example of their language as well.

My kids completely loved this book and I have read it countless times already. The colorful pictures, the animals on each page, the hidden insect in each picture, and even the conversation about love languages drew them in time and again. The book closes with some conversation starters to begin to help children to see their own love language and that of others as well.

This book offers a great way to draw your family together and is great for any age child. It is a longer picture book, so younger kids might enjoy it more split up over a few sittings. For my 6 and up kids we read it straight through each time.  The lesson fits for everyone and can be a great spark to encourage a greater demonstration of  love between siblings.

Gary Chapman’s The 5 Languages of Love is a classic and still much read book. I was very excited when I saw this book because now that same concept could be taught to children. This will not only help them learn to relate to each other but also the adults in their life. How wonderful they can learn and apply it at an early age.

Penny and Peyton have their birthday party with their 3 friends at the “Perfect Pet Pal Emporium.” It is every child’s dream come true because it is a zoo, a museum, a theme park, and a birthday party palace all rolled into one! The 5 languages of love are taught through the special pets each child receives as a gift. The pet each child is given matches his or her love language.

The book itself is beautiful. All the illustrations are brightly colored and well drawn. There are also lots of details in the pictures that not only cause the young ones to want linger, but they serve another purpose. Many of the pages have activities to search for certain items on that page. For example, one page has underwater creatures listed to find, making this a learning experience also. Another fun activity is on every big picture in the book is an insect to find. These are pretty small and it is a challenge! I even had fun with this one. At the end of the book is a “Five Love Languages Quiz for Kids”, with questions to help them identify their love language. A well written, fun book to read over and over!

This book is based on The 5 Love Languages series by Gary Chapman. It is an entertaining adventure.

My kids loved the characters of Penny and Peyton, but even more love the variety of animals and “pets” throughout the book. My four year old wants to “read” it herself several times a day. She continues to find new and interesting things on each of the wonderfully illustrated pages. Even as I’m typing this review, she’s trying to grab the book out of my hand to “read” again! lol

A wonderful story for young and old! I highly recommend this book!

This is a really cute book, I never really gave any thoughts to the love languages that so many have talked about for so long, but after reading this book it made me think how I can better relate to my children. The colorful illustrations and hide and seek activities through out kept even my 10 year old’s attention (she enjoys me reading aloud but something that would be perceived as a too young book isn’t always listened to). The animals are of a wide variety and for the boy in my life the brief area about dinosaurs was an attention grabber. I’d like to take more time to read through it again and do all the activities that are scattered throughout and my children enjoyed trying to guess what their love language was – I have one whose primary is gifts and secondary is quality time while I have two others whose primaries are physical touch and secondary is quality time.

If you are not yet familiar with Gary Chapman’s ‘The 5 Love Languages’ series I can only say you will enjoy finding more about his children book!

In ‘A Perfect Pet For Peyton’ you will find a hands on interactive story describing the many personal ways we receive and give love!

The joy of ‘rediscovering’ these love languages! So simple and so precious! Quality time, words of affirmation, physical touch, acts of services and gifts!

A wonderful way to reach out and share with young children (and not so young!) reading time! You will notice special highlighted words matching activities and clues to a ‘love language’ whilst also having opportunities to look for hidden objects together!

A quiz for kids (and their parents!) is included at the end certain to make this a rewarding time for all!

With its beautiful and eye catching illustrations this large hardback children story is sure to allow for plenty of imagination and I can see why any child would love this book! Each will soon find his/her favourite pet in this wonderful story whilst learning about those special gifts!

‘A Perfect Pet For Peyton’ is the perfect gift for any child! 5 Stars!!

 

By Kathleen (Amazon)

Readers and pre-readers alike will enjoy A Perfect Pet for Peyton as you do searches for hidden objects on a page. Text colors highlight words to match activity and clues to a love language. You will look forward to reading over and over together, discussing why the pets and children in the story are a good match, and anticipating what is on a following page. The illustrations are bright and colorful.

After the story, a “Five Love Languages Quiz for Kids,” is included to discover personal love languages in each unique way. I am looking forward to gifting A Perfect Pet for Peyton to a young family I am visiting tomorrow!

If you have ever heard about the 5 Love Languages for Children, then you will love the introduction that “A Perfect Pet for Peyton” by Rick Osbourne and Gary Chapman gives young children. In this amazing and beautifully illustrated children’s book, the story involves the hints that Peyton and his sister penny have been providing as hints to their parents in preparation for their birthday. Hoping that they will get tjust the right pet for their birthday, their parents begin their day with a party at The Perfect Pal Pet Emporium. Along the way, Peyton and Penny along with their friends learn about what they each love about how the celebrate their day and in so doing so show what each of the 5 Love Languages are and how they relate to the children.

Besides just a beautifully illustrated story book, there are activities for the kids to do as they are reading through the book, a scavenger hunt of sorts that begins at first page and lasts til the very end. It’s a great way for parents as well as their kids to understand the meaning behind what the 5 Love Languages are and how they relate to what the kids appreciate from life and others. In the back are questions for parents to ask their kids as they re-read the story. It helps both parents and their kids to understand what is truly important to speak the language of “Love” to our kids and in return is a great way to share quality time together.

 

By Maureen (Amazon)

The boys and I, ages 4 and 6, spent a really fun time reading and enjoying this great book. They loved that the twins were a boy and a girl…Peyton and Penny, and were celebrating their birthday!

Besides the delightful story there are so many interactive pictures for them to participate with! One of the first fun activities was to find a very small insect in each of the big pictures. For their party they are going with their friends to Mr Chapman’s Perfect Pet Emporium. The boys both decided they wanted their next parties there!

We have been through this book a few times now, and it has become a real favorite! They also like it when we get to end and get to the Quiz!! There they are introduced to the Five Love Languages for Kids..we talk about Gifts, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Physical Touch, and Acts of Service.

I really recommend this book for a good quality time with your children!

 

By Cindy Navarro (Amazon)

Younger kids will love this day spent with twins, Peyton and Penny, as they celebrate their birthday with 3 friends at Mr. Chapman’s Perfect Pet Pal Emporium!! The bright colors and invitations to search for the various animals on the picture make this book one that younger kids will eagerly want to become engaged in and is sure to provide a lot of fun. Plus, as they play, and the story unfolds it gives the adult a chance to gain a better understanding of the child they are sharing with, and for the child to become more aware of the various ways of receiving and expressing love and appreciation. Based on the popular 5 Love Languages, this creative story is a great teaching tool, enjoyable read, and bonding experience that is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

I will be the first to admit that I did not read this book to my children.  No, I did not.  Now, I know you are asking how I can review this book if I didn’t read it to my kids…  I sat and watched my husband read this to my kids, and I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction that occurred.  DS9 was so interested as the story unfolded.  I could see him thinking hard about what his “love language” would be.

Just tonight, DS9 came to me and said, “My love language is Physical Touch.”  “Yes, it is!” I said.  I think this book is wonderful for all children but especially for those who are on the Autism Spectrum or who don’t have an awareness of how to feel or express their love for their family.  I feel that both of my kids have benefited from this story, and we parents have, too.  I hope that you have a chance to read this book to your child or grandchild.

As a wife & mother I always strive to be a better person. I want the best for my marriage and my daughter. I think the best way to keep a relationship strong and healthy is by constantly growing, together.

I’ve been a fan of Dr. Gary Chapman’s ‘The 5 Love Languages’ for many years and was thrilled when I was offered the chance to read and review his newest book that is directed towards children, ‘A Perfect Pet for Peyton’ which has overthrown all the books we have for my 4 year old daughter and we’ve read it nightly since it arrived.

The book is well written with catching illustrations. My 4 year old reads it alone (in her own version) and begs me to read it with her multiple times a day. The book shows children, in a way they can understand what the 5 Love Languages are and how they apply to each person. This book helps to discuss what Love Language best fits your child. I can attest that as soon as you understand the Love Language of the people close to you, your relationships will skyrocket.

The illustrations in this book were lovely. The story-line was awesome for children. After the story, there are two pages of questions to ask your child to reinforce the love language lesson.

This is a longer book, so I had to break it up into sections for my toddler. The book does have “thinking” questions throughout the book (for example, can you count the birds on this page?) that are a nice way to involve toddlers in the book. If you are a fan of Gary Chapman and The Five Love Language concept, this is a must-have for your children! It is a wonderful way to express the five love languages across the age barriers.  My little one adored the book, as you can see here!

The book has lots of neat hidden things and games to do throughout. Lee’s favorite was looking for the hidden insects on each page. I loved pointing out each animal and naming them. And with each child in the book we learn about what each Love language is and means. At the end of the book there is a mini quiz to help you determine your child’s love language. Lee is only 5 and ended up saying “yes” to every question, which didn’t help me. But from what I’ve seen of her, her languages would be “gifts” and “physical touch”. I’m going to be reading “The 5 Love Languages of children” next so hopefully it will help me recognize more of what her languages are and help me figure out Moo too.

“A Perfect Pet for Peyton” is a bit longer book then my kids are use to sitting down for and reading all at once. Lee, who is 5, had no problem sitting though it all as long as we played all the games on each page. But Moo wouldn’t last two pages, but she’s only 2.5. I would recommend this book for ages 6-12 because of the length. But Moo did love looking at all the illustrations, and I know she understood some of it. This is one book I am happy to have in my library.

Dr. Gary Chapman has a new book (his first ever children’s book), A Perfect Pet for Peyton.  The instant I heard this news, I knew I had to have the book.  Before reading it I knew that I would enjoy it simply because of the principles that Dr. Chapman has in the other book I religiously read every year.

I was not disappointed one bit.  This book is for kids the age of 5-10 and it is designed to help them discover their own love language based off of the same principles that Dr. Chapman has in The 5 Love Languages. In order to know why it is so important to not only know your love language, but your kids’…and for your kids to know their love language, well, you just need to get the book and read it    After all, there must be something to it.  He has sold over 7 million copies of it.

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.

I really knew that this book would bless my children to learn about the different ways the different ways that people express love. And the book did not disappoint. My children were hooked from page 1. My two youngest were not only fascinated with the story line but also enjoyed the very vivid illustrations. For added fun there are different things for the children to find that are “hidden” within the illustrations. This was a favorite for my 3 and 5-year-old sons. My 10-year-old daughter really enjoyed the part at the end of the story where she could read more in depth about the 5 love languages while taking the The Five Love Languages For Kids Quiz. She really spent some time thinking and asking a lot of questions after reading over this section several times. This is a book we will be reading at least a few times a week as it has prompted some great conversations and prayers in my children!

We found the book to be engaging and unique. I loved helping my children explore the importance of love! The book is basked on best-selling author, Gary Chapman’s successful The 5 Languages of Love. Now, thanks to the pets at the Pet Emporium, children can discover The 5 Love Languages of Children.

The book is quite an adventure and my children wished they could visit the pet shop in the story! As the story was read, they enjoyed searching for the insect in the big pictures and doing the small tasks in the story, like finding various birds. It made the whole story an interactive experience. Kudos to Wilson Williams Jr. who did an outstanding job of illustrating the book.

There are some fun animals throughout the book and my children enjoyed sharing their experiences with these animals and learning about new ones. I appreciated the animals and the friends at the party delivering such a great message.

The boys and I, ages 4 and 6, spent a really fun time reading and enjoying this great book. They loved that the twins were a boy and a girl…Peyton and Penny, and were celebrating their birthday!

Besides the delightful story there are so many interactive pictures for them to participate with! One of the first fun activities was to find a very small insect in each of the big pictures. For their party they are going with their friends to Mr Chapman’s Perfect Pet Emporium. The boys both decided they wanted their next parties there!

We have been through this book a few times now, and it has become a real favorite! They also like it when we get to end and get to the Quiz!! There they are introduced to the Five Love Languages for Kids..we talk about Gifts, Words of Affirmation, Quality Time, Physical Touch, and Acts of Service.

I really recommend this book for a good quality time with your children!

This is an all-around feel good book. The authors do a wonderful job exploring each love language within the book. The text is simple enough for my six year old to read independently, yet mature enough to hold my ten year olds’s interest. The hidden details of the pictures allow even the younger children to get involved in the text.

WHAT DID MY PRODUCT TESTERS THINK?

1 – I liked it. I liked how their was gurls (girls).

2 – I liked it because, well, every page you are supposed to find at least one insect. I really like trying to find things. I also really liked how it was a theme park mixed with a pet store mixed with a petting zoo mixed with a museum mixed with a birthday palace.

3 – I thought the book was really good because it was educational but it wasn’t boring. I especially liked how Peyton didn’t think he was going to get a pet but then at the end he got the perfect pet and was really happy. I liked how it was by Gary Chapman and the man who owned the pet palace was Mr. Chapman.

4 – I liked the parts where they are in the buildings and by the map and they are having their cake and riding the roller coaster. I also really like the dinosaur rooms.

I had a fun time cuddling with my boys on the couch reading the book. It’s a fun read so they were entertained, and then we had fun talking about the five love languages and guessing which one might be their primary love language.

Plus, there are hidden pictures and extra activities on each page of the book, so my kids have had a great time looking at the book long after I read it to them.

When I first opened this book…I was surprised at how beautiful it was inside…very colorfully illustrated.

My kids immediately wanted to read the book. We’ve heard of the 5 Love Languages but never really discussed them as a family. This book helps any family to put those love languages into words…and into practice.

After my son and I read the book together, we tried to figure out his love languages. The questions in the back of the book, help with that. One of his main love languages he is, is “personal touch.” He learned that he feels loved when we cuddle, hug, and even from wrestling with dad. He’s a hugger and snuggler. He also learned that he is showing love with his “acts of service.” He said he also likes it when someone does something nice for him. And he enjoys just spending time with people. I love that homeschooling allows for all these things…knowing he is loved. He could care less about words or gifts…because those are not his love language. This works well for me…because I am similar in my love languages.

I think this is how I get through, this season that we are in, where I don’t get much time to myself. I feel love from the “quality time” I get with my family. I think this is very important to kids. They need to feel their loved ones near…bonding and forming lifelong relationships.

I think this book is a great book to add to any child’s bookshelf. Your kids will enjoy reading it…and finding the hidden objects on the pages. What a fun added bonus.

I was given a copy of a fabulous new book called “A Perfect Pet for Peyton”  I love this book. Not only is it a real fun read it is also beautifully illustrated. I like how there are small activities strewn throughout the book to keep it fascinating for the little ones. A perfect book for bonding with your favorite kids.  Reading together is a great way to spend quality time with your loved ones. This book also teaches kids about the five love languages. We all love and feel loved differently. It is important to learn these way so we can love and share love to our fullest extent.  Amazing how the authors and illustrators keep your attention while teaching.

When I first pulled the book out of my bag, Eph grabbed it and wanted to read it. He is an emergent reader and after trying to read a couple of pages by himself, after about a minute he loudly declared he “didn’t like the book” and handed it back to Lu and I. Lu, my lover of animals, was instantly enthralled and caught on quickly to the seek and find.

Now, don’t let Eph’s quick dismissal of the book fool you. As soon as Lu found that first little dragonfly, Eph was listening intently while drawing and by the time that Peyton and Penny reached the The Perfect Pet Pal Emporium, he had discreetly made his way to the couch so he could see the pictures.

The book does a fantastic job of weaving the traits of each of the five love languages throughout the book. By the time you get to the end, the pet placings, you are very aware of each character’s love language. The kids and I had a great talk about the different characteristics and we even compared them to our dog, cat and fish.

I haven’t really had a chance to work with the kids to determine their love language. The book counsels not to put too much emphasis on one or the other but I feel pretty certain that Eph leans towards physical touch and gifts. Lu seems to be more quality time and words of affirmation. I plan on reading the book a few more times and talking them through the questions in the back.

Overall this is a great book to help you understand your child more and to help them understand each other. I highly recommend this book for my readers.

My daughter just loved this book she loved trying to find the hidden characters on the pages, and she had so much fun trying to find the hidden insects, she was so happy when she found them, she had to come and show me.So we now read the book together, and I love the time we spend together, and it is great for her to read to me. My daughter is in 1st grade and it just amazes me each day how big she is getting, and it is just amazing to me that my “baby” can read this book to me.

My little niece  also loved this book she is 3 and loved the pictures and thought the animals were great.

I loved all of the animals that are featured in the book, and I love the great messages that the book taught. It was nice for my daughter to have a book that is religious. Now this is not an overtly religious book, it just a great message.

And the animal fun place in the book, I just wish this existed this would be the most awesome birthday party ever!

The book is beautifully illustrated and written well. I would recommend this book for family reading, this is a great book that your little one will love. This book will make a great addition to an Easter basket this year.

Gary Chapman’s The 5 Languages of Love is a classic and still much read book. I was very excited when I saw this book because now that same concept could be taught to children. This will not only help them learn to relate to each other but also the adults in their life. How wonderful they can learn and apply it at an early age.

Penny and Peyton have their birthday party with their 3 friends at the “Perfect Pet Pal Emporium.” It is every child’s dream come true because it is a zoo, a museum, a theme park, and a birthday party palace all rolled into one! The 5 languages of love are taught through the special pets each child receives as a gift. The pet each child is given matches his or her love language.

The book itself is beautiful. All the illustrations are brightly colored and well drawn. There are also lots of details in the pictures that not only cause the young ones to want linger, but they serve another purpose. Many of the pages have activities to search for certain items on that page. For example, one page has underwater creatures listed to find, making this a learning experience also. Another fun activity is on every big picture in the book is an insect to find. These are pretty small and it is a challenge! I even had fun with this one. At the end of the book is a “Five Love Languages Quiz for Kids”, with questions to help them identify their love language. A well written, fun book to read over and over!

Our kids loved this story and especially liked the bright, colorful illustrations that are found on each page.  The story not only teaches the kids about the 5 different love languages but also shows them what speaking their love language means.  Each child at the party gets a specific pet that is speaks their exact love language.  There are also fun mini-activities scattered throughout the story in the form of “seek and find” activities.  On several pages, your child is challenged to find specific animals hidden in the illustrations.  This book is one that our son (who loves animals) has actually asked to read several times already.  Overall, we really enjoyed this book and it was a fun way to teach our children about how different love can be shown and felt.

This is a wonderfully imaginative hardcover storybook by authors Gary Chapman and Rick Osborne. My husband commented on just how beautifully illustrated it is. The story features four-color illustrations by Wilson Williams, Jr. that includes hidden details. The story is a great story that, I believe, all children will enjoy. It’s about five children who each, with the help of Mr. Chapman and the unique pets at his special emporium, discover their own personal love language. 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. The pictures are so bright and beautiful that it really grabbed my boys attention and kept it for the entire story. There is also a 5 Love Languages Quiz at the end of the book that will help kids discover their unique love language. In addition to being a great story and the beautiful illustrations there are hidden details and fun extra’s throughout the story that get your children to interact with the story. They ask the kids to find things on certain pages like the hidden insects in every big picture in the book.

This is a really cute book, I never really gave any thoughts to the love languages that so many have talked about for so long, but after reading this book it made me think how I can better relate to my children.  The colorful illustrations and hide and seek activities through out kept even my 10 year old’s attention (she enjoys me reading aloud but something that would be perceived as a too young book isn’t always listened to).  The animals are of a wide variety and for the boy in my life the brief area about dinosaurs was an attention grabber.  I’d like to take more time to read through it again and do all the activities that are scattered throughout and my children enjoyed trying to guess what their love language was – I have one whose primary is gifts and secondary is quality time while I have two others whose primaries are physical touch and secondary is quality time.

What a delightful book and a fabulous way to teach children that everyone “loves” a different way. Taking cues from Gary Chapman’s 5 Love Languages of Children… A Perfect Pet for Peyton brings the same concepts to a younger level and explains to kids that everyone has a special “love language”.

Just upon reading this simple child’s book…it was clear that many of my family members have completely different languages then I do.

The illustrations in the book were bright and colorful. They drew your child’s eye to them and brought the story alive. As a mother of twins…it was great to see that the main characters were twins. Penny and Peyton are fraternal twins and it was a delight to show my identical twin girls how each child had a different love language…even though they were twins. It would have been ideal if the main characters  had been identical twins.

Penny and Peyton are having a birthday at a fantastic pet emporium that is so much more then just a pet store…boy do I wish a place like this really existed. How exciting!

You’ll enjoy reading this book with your child…and your child will enjoy all the little “seek and find” games that are on various page of the book. It gives the story an interactive vibe and helps younger children stay involved.

This will definitely be a book that will be part of our family for a long time to come.

I absolutely loved this book.  It was very interactive with lots of fun things to do on each page like find the insects or identify the birds.  This was such a creative way to introduce children to the 5 love languages.  There is even a 5 Language Love Quiz at the end.  The illustrations are beautiful and will capture your child’s eyes.  I read it to my 3 year old and he soaked in all the colorful pictures and even started pointing out things I didn’t see.

If you have been looking for a book for your grandkids, have I got a book for you. A Perfect Pet for Peyton by Rick Osborne and Gary Chapman is an amazing birthday adventure story.  Both you and your children will enjoy this fun story celebrating Peyton and Penny (twins) birthday and the full-color illustrations.  Starting from the special breakfast, the ride to the pet store and meeting all the wonderful animals.  Visiting the aquarium, bird world, the petting zoo and of course the reptile area.  What’s a party without pizza and ice cream and opening presents?? The birthday fun goes on to a jungle safari, but all is not as easy and perfect as it seems.  Kids (and the grown-ups who love them)  learn  about what really is important and what really  makes them happy. This book includes a 5 Love Language Quiz to help kids identify their unique love language – gifts, words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch, acts of service.  This is a very special book to be shared with the ones you love – children and adults too.

The kids and I recently had the chance to review a new kids’ book that is a little different from other books in their library. This new book is called A Perfect Pet for Peyton

We like this book for a number of reasons. First off, the kids just liked the story and loved the idea of a wonderful pet emporium/theme park with lots of animals wandering around! The illustrations are nice and the story is fun. I like that, beyond the basic story, it’s also a search-and-find book, with animals hidden on many of the pages for you to find!

At the end of the book, after you’ve been introduced to the basic idea of the five love languages, there’s a quiz to take with your kids to identify their main love language.  If you’re new to the five love languages concept, it’s a way to identify how you feel loved and make sure that you are communicating love in the way that your family members and friends best understand.  I hadn’t thought too much about how my kids most feel loved before I read this book, although I was familiar with the idea. This book was definitely an inspiration to take some time and identify my kids’ different love languages!

All in all, this is a fun book for kids and parents alike.  We’ve been reading it often and I know we will continue to read and enjoy it in the future.

I love children’s books that teach life lessons and that have a positive theme running through it. When I was a child, my mom read with my sister and I and instilled a love of books in us. I received a copy of “A Perfect Pet for Peyton” to review.  It is a wonderful children’s emphasizing God and also teaching life lessons while entertaining with a great story and detailed illustrations.

This book is well written and beautifully illustrated. I love how the author also has activities throughout the book to share with your kids, such as “find how many insects are on this page.” I also liked how the illustrator drew children of different ethnic groups so all children could identify with the characters.

The book starts out with twins Penny & Peyton’s birthday adventure and party at Mr. Chapman’s Perfect Pet Pal Emporium. Both the twins and their three friends were going to receive their own pet pal. As story progresses, each child finds adventure, celebrates the birthdays with insect covered pizza, an ice cream sundae of their dreams and open their gifts. But the best part of all is they receive their perfect pet pal based on their own specific love language. Each language is explained and how the pet match is perfect.

Not only does the author discuss the type of animals but he also gives the readers the specific breed, for example African Grey Parrot and Ragdoll Cat. I love the fact it will stimulate the child’s interest in these specific animals. We have an African Grey Parrot so having one as a central character was awesome for me!

The book teaches the kids about the “5 Love Languages” and how each of them are different and how we all need to love everybody in every way. The author also emphasizes that God made each person special.  There is a 2 page quiz in the back of the book where you and your child can determine your child’s own love language

I have been familiar with Dr. Chapman’s 5 Love Language series for a while now. My husband and I have enjoyed getting to know more about each other and the girls through some of the books based on this. I love that this book makes it easier for kids to start learning about this earlier on. I think it’s important to recognize that different people perceive love and affection differently. It’s important to understand that what be a loving gesture to one, is not necessarily so to someone else, and avoid conflicts by nothing other than misunderstanding of how our words, actions, or lack there of “speak” to others. And, I think that as with so many other things, it’s never too early to start learning… with age appropriate guidance.

The book has been a hit in my home. The girls are REALLY enjoying learning more about the love languages. They seem to be paying more attention to the other’s love language, on their own! I love that there will be a tool now to go to when conflict comes about and we need to go back to making sure we’re “speaking” in the other’s love language so the other person “gets us”.

The girls and I highly recommend this book for a kids’ home library!

I have been MIA lately in bloggerland as I am sure you have noticed.  We have some big things happening in our lives right now and big things for a big family become HUGE and all encompassing!  I have had some amazing books delivered to me for review in recent weeks that I have squeezed into my reading time and I am looking forward to sharing with you.  The first is the children’s book, A Perfect pet for Peyton written by Gary Chapman and Rick Osborne, a book to teach children about love languages.

Many years ago, my husband and I went though The 5 Love Languages book with our weekly bible study group.  We did not personally own the book and simply went through 45 minutes of discussion about each of the 5 love languages each week for 5 weeks, so it ended up not really having an effect on us and we didn’t truly figure out what our love languages are because we didn’t fully understand each one at the time.  However, in just one reading of A Perfect Pet For Peyton, I understand more about each love language than I did by attending the bible study so many years ago and it has finally dawned on me exactly why I feel loved by some people and unloved by others.  My younger children loved the beautiful illustrations by Wilson Williams Jr. and enjoyed searching for the hidden details in each picture which make the book even more interactive. The back pages have a quick overview of each love language so that children (and parents) can figure out what their love language is and most importantly, how to better give love to others.   We have now begun the slow process of implementing the main love languages of all 11 children into our lives!

 

taunyasplace.com

My girls initially said the book was “boring”.  I think this was a combination of their age and the fact that I requested them to read it out loud.  I did find that once they reached the part where the kids were discovering their pets/language that they found the book interesting.  The end of the book is a quiz and I found my girls completing the quiz on their own.

 

grandmascookiejar.net

Okay, first of all, I absolutely have to say I could have totally done without the illustrations of spiders. Just flat creepy – and completely unnecessary – having bugs, including a tarantula, on a pizza. I thought the story was a bit long-winded, but my grandson enjoyed the story and did want to have it all read to him more than once.  It does do a good job of explaining the five love languages and giving examples of what they look like in people . . . if children and parents and grandparents understand the five love languages, they will be able to better understand how they, and others, give and receive love! When we know these things, we are better able to love and serve others, making this a book which all families will enjoy and learn from!

 

community.babycenter.com

I loved how the book was interactive and the kids spent time trying to find the bugs on each page.  I am looking forward to exploring what Love Language fits with each of my children.  At 9 & 11 I think the older two will help me figure it out as well.  The book itself has a great story and the illustrations are bold and beautiful.  The back of the book helps outline the 5 love languages which is a huge help in seeing what characteristics fit each child.

I was recently sent a copy of Gary Chapman and Rick Osborne’s new children’s book, A Perfect Pet for Peyton, to read and review.  Unfortunately, my daughters are too young to enjoy this book at the moment, but when they are able, this will definitely be a book worth sharing at it explains the 5 languages of love ( gifts, words of affirmation, quality time, physical touch and acts of service) and how everyone loves differently.  Through beautiful illustrations done by Wilson Williams Jr., children will not only enjoy a entertaining story about 5 young children who visit Mr. Chapman’s pet emporium to find the pet that is right for them, but they will also learn about how they love.  Even though there are a lot of words on each page, and younger children may get overwhelmed with the text, they will be drawn back into the story, as there are fun hidden pictures on various pages of this book.  So, just when they are about to get bored, they are given the task to find a certain # of items on the page.

Once you are done reading this book with your little, they may have questions, or you may want to spark up a conversation about what they learned.  Either way, this books provides an outlet for commuting further about being and showing love. I am so glad I had the opportunity to read this book, and can’t wait to share it with my girls.  I wonder what love language they will identify with?

 

rubyslippersschool.com

A Perfect Pet for Peyton has been enjoyed at our home. I read it through on my own first so that I could be familiar with it before reading it to the children. As we were going through it together the first time I felt that the point of the love languages was a little over their heads. I asked them at the end of the story which Perfect Pet they liked/related to more. They gave me their answers but didn’t say much else. I think that the depth of this book will require multiple readings before my brood takes in the full importance of its message.

I believe that the book has been well written and makes it’s message very clear, though I believe it is better suited for kids 10 and up only because of the depth of the message.

That being said my 3 year old enjoyed taking in the bright pictures and hearing the book read aloud. All of my children have looked through the book on their own.

I would recommend this book to any parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle who have young children in their lives. Any who desire that the language of love be opened up to that young someone special.

2:52 BOYS NON-FICTIONS SERIES This series started with a conundrum. Publishing experts say that boys (on average) don’t read, so books published specifically for them usually fail. Yet parents wanted Christian resources for their boys. The solution? Write and design books that will both interest and feed Christian boys. Break the Bible out into topics that boys are attracted to, illustrate them with lots of pictures that boys will like, and break the content up into bite-sized pieces. Well we solved the conundrum these books have been selling like cheap umbrellas in an unexpected rainstorm and the letters of thanks have poured in from the parents of boys everywhere. The books are marked for ages 8 – 12 but boys as young as 5 and as old as 14 have been seen devouring them.
