📖 Book Review 📖 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Love Is…. Has incredible illustrations by the talented Paola Escobar. This book brings the passages of First Corinthians 13 to life in a way I’ve never seen. The illustrator uses the beauty of nature, vibrant and fun colors, forest animals, seasons changing, bugs, birds, and a rainbow to show children the beauty of love. This book would be perfect to give as a gift. It has a beautiful cover, and illustrations throughout. Children of many ages would love the beauty and message of this book. The illustrations are captivating and can be used to help further discussion amongst its readers. This book carries such an important message of love. I will joyfully include this book in my gift giving in the future. Thank you Paola Escobar for such incredible and creative illustrations. Thank you Zondervan, Zonderkidz-Books, and NetGalley for this e-ARC in exchange for my honest review. #LoveIsBook #NetGalley
What a lovely book! The colorful illustrations were really beautiful. I like the idea of using this book to introduce the bible to children. We have storybook bibles, which is great for younger kids. This book will be a great conversation starter not only about the bible, but about the concept of love in all its different forms. I'll be adding this to my kiddos' home library for sure!
A wonderful piece of text from the Bible told in an original and children friendly way. Using the animals of the world to demonstrate what love, patience, kindness and hope is, was pure genius and the illustrations were gorgeous.
This is the sweetest book!! This would be a lovely baby shower gift. I would recommend this for a reading at night with your children. This is the bible verse that says what Love is. Each picture is so gorgeous. It makes you feel like you are outdoors right with them. The pictures alone does so much for the book. This is such a good book and would recommend it to anyone.
𝐋𝐨𝐯𝐞 𝐈𝐬 This is such a beautiful story with stunning illustrations of wild animals. My children were so invested in this story. I can’t wait to buy the physical copy for our bookshelf.
Beautiful illustrations in a simplistic book format. It has only a few words per page so it would be good for young children who are learning to read.
Such a beautiful book about love and how it pulls you through life and it's hardships. The illustrations in the book are amazing. Beautiful colors and wonderful animal designs. I really loved this book in verse and highly recommend it. Thanks so much to #Netgalley for the early review copy.
I loved the illustrations paired with the verses. I could see our church kids loving these pictures and book.
Love I... is is a delightful way to share the meaning of biblical love with young children. Featuring a cast of woodland creatures amidst various seasons in the life of a tree, children will see examples of what love looks like. The simple text of 1 Corinthians 13, based on the NIV, is all the text needed to share with little ones. Beautiful and inspiring.
