Where Does Love Hide? by Mary Manz Simon and Illus by Hannah Wood
Where Does Love Hide? is a lift the flap board book for little ones ages one to three. This cute, bright board book is designed to help young children learn the basic concept of love in action. Children can see every day actions they can take to show love to those around them. Each page shows an example of love in action along with a short memory verse.
Every day, many children hear the words, I Love You. However, they don't always understand what those abstract concepts mean. Mary Manz Simon's book, Where Does Love Hide? is designed to help children see how to show what love looks like through day to day activities like helping to put up groceries, taking turns when playing, and helping Grandpa with a small task.
Where Does Love Hide? is bright and nicely illustrated with pictures and flaps that are easy for little ones to see and get their hands on. In the back of the book there is a short note to parents to help them see how to use the book to help their little ones grown and learn. I think it is a nice book for families to use with young children and I would recommend it to those who have little ones. I think it teaches basic concepts that can be built on as the child learns and grows.
I received Where Does Love Hide? from Tyndale Kids. I was not required to write positive review in exchange for the book.
