Lots of Love written by Kim Washburn and illustrated by Jaqueline East is a sweet little board book that demonstrates ways to show love.
In following a Valentine’s Day theme, the month of February is the perfect time to share this book with children.
In this story, readers are introduced to a little girl that looks for ways throughout her day to share love and kindness with others. Love is shown in numerous ways toward her parents, teachers, siblings, friends, family, and pets. I like the fact it wasn’t just in store-bought material items but in acts of kindness, hugs, a kind word, and so forth. The story wraps up nicely pointing to the fact that God fills our lives with blessings, love, and that days appear much brighter when we act in love toward others.
The book is written in a rhyming way making it an easy read. The text is simplistic, perfect for young children to understand. I like this book as it can be used as a conversation starter with littles ones on how we can show our love toward others and how a cheerful heart and giver is an enormous blessing toward others and to God! What a testimony true love is.
