“A Perfect Pet for Peyton” is written by Gary Chapman and Rick Osborne. Rick Osborne, is a well known speaker and author covering Christian parenting. And Gary Chapman is another well known author and speaker, one I know the best through his “5 Love Languages” book.
“A Perfect Pet for Peyton” is a children’s book about two kids, Penny and Peyton, twins, who are celebrating their birthday at Mr. Chapman’s Pet Pal Emporium. There Mr. Chapman finds the perfect pet for each child. Each pet fits what that child’s “love language” is. There friends are with them to celebrate too and each get a pet of their own. For instance, Sofia loves to give hugs and be close to all her friends. Mr. Chapman explains that her love language is “physical touch” and she receives a French Lop Rabbit named, Snuggles, because she loves to touch too.
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.
