Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that An Awesome Book of Love! is the third book in a series, following An Awesome Book! and An Awesome Book of Thanks! It's exuberant, fun, silly, and wise as it tackles a big issue: the wonder of love. And the colorful, kid-like art works perfectly.
What's the story?
Author Dallas Clayton was a self-publishing phenom with his first effort, The Awesome Book, earning him fans worldwide and a publishing deal with Harper for this one. AN AWESOME BOOK OF LOVE! focuses with great enthusiasm on that most universal of emotions: love.
Is it any good?
An Awesome Book of Love! mixes clever, imaginative verse (in capital block letters) and playful, colorful, kid-like illustrations in a celebratory attempt to capture the amazing nature and diverse qualities of love. You can't help but be swept up in the fun, passion, and grandness of it all, with a cast of animals, fish, and n fuzzy monsters jumping and dancing on every spread, enlivened hearts and rainbows. The art isn't sophisticated, but the freewheeling look is as inviting as a kid's drawing.
