A Celebration of Love Series: Book Review #1: YOU, A Story of Love and Friendship by Stephen Michael King

A Celebration of Love is a feature I'm doing here on Mundie Kids to celebrate the upcoming Valentine's Day holiday as well as some wonderful upcoming releases. Each day leading up to Valentine's Day I'm going to be posting a review for one of Harper Collins Children's Books newest picture book releases that celebrates LOVE. Each of these books celebrates love in a variety of ways that children will understand and enjoyable reading about.

The world is big.

It is exciting and colorful and full of amazing things.

But the best thing?

The best thing in the world is YOU.

Stephen Michael King's book is a tribute to friendship and love in all its many forms.

It is a book to give, to share, and to read with every person you love. -quoted on Goodreads

A really cute read with equally adorable illustrations that will capture any young readers attention. I love how simple this story is and how colorful, simple and elegant each of the pictures talks are. This story talks about the beautiful world around us that's full of color, music and the best thing of all, YOU. It's the perfect book to have at home, in a preschool setting, or story time, as kids will be able to relate to the colors, different musical sounds, and most importantly the love that's mentioned in the book. If you're looking for that perfect book to get your kids for Valentine's Day, I'd recommend picking up this adorable story about love and friendship. It's a book you'll want to keep out all year round.

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
