This wonderfully imaginative children's hardcover book by bestselling authors Gary Chapman and Rick Osborne, and four-color illustrations (with hidden details!) by Wilson Williams, Jr., will help children learn about the importance of love. Written especially for children ages 5-8 and based on Gary's highly successful The 5 Love Languages,each child in this entertaining and playful story learns that they each have a primary love language that when "spoken" by others, shows love to them. As the five children in this classically illustrated story interact with Mr. Chapman and unique animals at his special zoo/museum/theme park/birthday party palace, they come to understand their own love language! Readers are sure to recognize their own love language as the story develops, and are helped at the end of the book with a quiz for kids that will help parents and their children identify their unique love language. The cast of child characters in this whimsical story include: Penny, Peyton's twin sister, who receives love best when others spend quality time with her. Mr. Chapman introduces Penny to Horace, a Ragdoll Cat who just wants to be with Penny. Jayla, one of Penny's close friends, is always saying nice things about people. Her love language is words of affirmation. Jayla's perfect pet pal is Pamela, an African Grey Parrot, who repeats the nice things Jayla says about others. Kevin, one of Peyton's close friends, enjoys giving things to people. So does his special pet Chipo, a Capuchin Monkey! Sofialoves to pet the animals, and to show her love for others with special hugs. Physical touch is Sofia's love language. Snuggles, a French Lop Rabbit who loves to snuggle and cuddle, becomes her perfect pet pal. Peyton, one of the birthday celebrants, loves to help others, and appreciates it when others do little things for him. He is matched with Alexis, a well-trained Border Collie who pushes open doors and carries things for others.
