“Where is Love?” Children’s Book Review & Giveaway

May 27, 2010

I recently had the opportunity to review an adorable book called, Where Is Love?, written by Laura Nadler Scott and illustrated by Marguerite Massa.  My 6 year old really liked it, especially since it involved bird characters.  His grandpa (my dad) is an avid bird lover, so this was a great read for our family!  The book retails for $14.99 and can be purchased online.

“Where is love?” Leni Lovebird desperately wants to learn from her fellow forest dwellers so she can create a love song of her very own. But Leni just can’t seem to find love where others do. Should she take the advice of a busy mole, an old owl, a lolling turtle, or a plump bee? Fly alongside Leni as she journeys far from Mother Bird in search of love, only to discover she has traveled a delicate circle home.
