What I thought about this book: 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.
I have one copy of A Perfect Pet for Peyton to give away to one lucky winner. This is one of those books that I hope you will go out and buy if you don’t win, though! It is THAT good!
