Book Description from Booklook:
Lots of Love celebrates all the ways we show love—from hugs and kisses to sharing and helping others. The sweet rhymes and whimsical artwork in this board book illustrate the special bonds of love between families and friends. Perfect for young children, this book will make you want to snuggle with your little one as you two explore the greatest blessing of all—love!

My Review:
Lots of Love is a charming board book. It shows sweet, appropriate ways to show love to friends and family throughout an ordinary day. For example, her mother hugs her and she, in turn, hugs her sister and brothers. She helps clean up the craft supplies at school and gives the card she made to her teacher. And "Sitting with my best friends, / We laugh and talk and play. / I want to share some kindness / With all the words I say."

The Christian element explains why we should show love to others: "God fills my life with blessings. / He loves me through and through. / My heart is overflowing / And I want to show love too." The illustrations are nice and invite talk about the scenes since they illustrate the text but show even more. I liked that the people shown had a variety of skin tones. Overall, I'd highly recommend this board book.

If you've read this book, what do you think about it? I'd be honored if you wrote your own opinion of the book in the comments.
