Pair with the children's book "A Perfect Pet for Peyton" also by Chapman
on March 16, 2014
Many good books have adaptations for different audiences/circumstances. This adaptation about children is a must read. I know extrapolating ideas from the original piece works but you would miss the examples in this this book that are about children specifically rather than romance. How you relate with your children affects how they relate to you and others. If your child is going through rough changes, this book can help. Audible.com (an amazon company for audio books) at the time of this review is also selling the audio book for under $4 CAD. Many reviews detail the content, so I'm not going to waste time covering it but I do have a companion suggestion:
"A Perfect Pet for Peyton" is Chapman's children's book that uses examples how different animals relate to children demonstrate the love languages to children. Each child's love language is related to their multiple loving actions and how their perfect pet expresses love. The examples include a helping border collie dog for acts of service, a giving monkey for gifts, a cuddly bunny for touch, a cat that loves following and spending time with people for quality time, and a sweet parrot for words of affirmation. Why each pet is paired with that child is explained in a way for kids to grasp the concept. This book not only was enjoyable time spent with my kids, it ended up giving me a strong visual of the 5 love languages. My children (3.5 and 5 years old) loved it and enjoyed discussing it as we read. They also liked the mini activities on each page (simple seek and finds). I have read this book off of my iphone, ipad and computer (the only issue was the insects were to small to find on the iphone).
