Recommended Age: read together: 3 to 8; read yourself: 7 to 9

Young Reader Reaction: Review pending.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a lovely little book. It reminds me of a gift book, but its designed for kids. I loved that the recipe is at the back, so you can share the story in "real life." The illustrations are very nice, and the young children just adorable.

Pros: Brief text and full-page illustrations combine to create a book where love jumps from every page.

Cons: None, really. This would be fun to share with very young children, though some of the concepts (e.g., unrequited love) will be beyond them.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. In fact, buy two. One for you and one for your child's best friend. This is a book that you'll see at Valentine's Day but it's wonderful all year 'round.
