Content Rating: G. This children's book is for everyone.
In the daily rush to get to school and work, check the alerts on our phones, worry about scary monsters (AAAHHHH!), and keep up with our favorite shows, it can be easy to lose sight of the most important thing in life―love.
But from kindly crossing guards to thoughtful neighbors to our closest friends and family, love is everywhere. It’s in the smell of Mom’s freshly baked croissants. It’s in the wag of a dog’s tail. It’s in a teacher’s warm greeting at the schoolhouse. And it’s in a goodbye kiss from Dad as he makes his way to work.
When the world sometimes feels uncertain and the sky feels gray, just look around and notice how love can melt your worries away.
I was drawn to this book because of its gorgeous cover. It’s bright, cheery, and brings a smile to my face when I look at it. I also love the messaging of this book. Which is simply finding love in the little things and the role it plays in building strong communities and relationships.
This is my first book by this author and not my last. I hope to see more from this author. The book is beautifully illustrated and engaging. The book also shows the benefits of focusing on the love behind the little things others do for us while also learning the importance of being kind. The book is a great conversation starter for parents looking to teach compassion for others and appreciation for what we have.
I found the story to be engaging from start to finish and highly recommend it to all young readers out there!

Gabriella Fiorletta studied English literature at the University of South Florida. She is a former teacher, guidance counselor, and stay-at-home mom. When she is not reading a book to her three young children, you can find her enjoying the beaches of sunny Florida, cooking her favorite Italian meals, or planning her family’s next RV adventure. Writing a children’s book has been a dream of hers since she was a little girl. One night when she was tucking her daughter Charlotte into bed, she pointed to her mom’s heirloom necklace and said, “Mom, when I look at you, I see love.” With that, the foundation of Gabriella’s first children’s book was laid.
