Love is Kind / Your Spark: Celebrating the Brighter Part of You!

Love Is Kind


Age Range: 4 - 8 years

  • Love Is Kind is a heartwarming story about Little Owl who hopes to buy his grammy a heart-shaped box of chocolates for her birthday. On his quest for the chocolates, he’s thwarted at every turn, but ends up discovering the real meaning of love as described in 1 Corinthians 13. Told in simple prose by bestselling author Laura Sassi, this heartfelt and humorous picture book is a sweet reminder that real love isn’t found in a box – even one filled with chocolates. Love Is Kind takes a charming and gentle approach to teaching kids the true meaning of love, while celebrating the bonds that kids have with their grandparents, and the many forms that love and happiness can take. 
    My thoughts: LOVE IS KIND is an adorable children's book centered around 1 Corinthians 13. It is  not preachy so even those who object to religious content should be able to enjoy this book.   It showcases the  special love children   have with  their grandparents  and what  it means to  show love to others.  Children and grandparents will  booth love this book.

  • We all have a light inside us that shines brightly and makes us who we are. Artists and athletes, dancers and dreamers, jokers and gymnasts … I want to see you shine in your own unique way. Come along with me as we celebrate your spark.

    Did you know that God gave you your very own spark? It’s true! And no one else in the whole wide world has a spark like yours! Your spark makes your eyes twinkle and your mouth smile. It makes your feet stomp and your voice loud. It makes you excited and curious to learn new things. It lights you up from the inside, and it fills you with wonder and dreams.

    Your spark does all that and more. And author Lisa Leonard offers this picture book in celebration of you … and your spark! Lisa pours her heart into this book, bringing Your Spark to life with inspiring text and free-spirited illustrations. More than anything, Lisa wants you and children everywhere to know:

    Inside your heart there is a spark.It shines bright and true, and it’s what makes you, YOU!

    Your Spark:

    Is written by social media sensation and jewelry-maker Lisa Leonard
    Shines with the universal message of self-acceptance and is a celebration of what makes us all unique
    Inspires children to shine in their own unique way
    Features a tactile cover that sparkles with glitter
    My thoughts:  I didn't really care for this book but I'm not sure why. Maybe it seemed too New Age - you power the universe though it doesn't  exactly say that.  I do  agree we are all individuals and unique but I don't know.  Like I said something hit me wrong but I'm not sure why.
    If you are looking for a book that celebrates  that part of you that makes you unique then maybe this is for you.  Don't take my word for it.  Check it out for yourself.
