A Perfect Pet For Peyton, Book Review And Giveaway


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.

The cast of child characters in this whimsical story include: 
  • Peyton, one of the birthday celebrants, loves to help others, and appreciates it when others do little things for him.
  • Penny, Peyton's twin sister, who receives love best when others spend quality time with her.
  • Jayla, one of Penny's close friends, is always saying nice things about people. Her love language is words of affirmation.
  • Kevin, one of Peyton's close friends, enjoys giving things to people.
  • Sofia loves to pet the animals, and to show her love for others with special hugs.
My personal thoughts:

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!!

  1. I am familiar with The 5 Love Languages and I think it is a great book. This sounds like a wonderful way to share this with children.

  2. Thanks for this great review. I am familiar as well with the 5 Love Languages and think it's an excellent book. I didn't know the author had written this one for children. I'll suggest it to our church librarian. I just won a video from your blog so if I'm chosen, please give someone else an opportunity. I did receive the video and am thrilled to have won it. Thanks for all that you share here. ~ Abby
