Review: Little Love by Nadine Brun-Cosme


by Nadine Brun-Cosme
Illustrated by Marion Cocklico
Little Simon
Board Book 
14 pages
ages 2 to 5

In this sweet, lovable story, Little One is showered with hugs and kisses until...poof! He becomes Little Love.

When Little One sees Mommy and Daddy,
a big smile grows on his face
Mommy wraps Little One in her arms
and showers him with kisses.

In this sweet story all about love, Little Love learns just how much his parents love him. A perfect first book of feelings, this book is filled with all the reasons why every child is the greatest gift that any parent could ask for.

                                          * packed with family love
                                          * sweet characters
                                          *  cute cover


Firstly, I have a soft-spot for super sweet covers, which hit the atmosphere of the book just right. And this one does exactly that.

Little One is loved. It begins with Little One receiving love from its mother and father with all the cuddling and sweetness to make the heart melt. This love makes Little One grow...which means more cuddles and sweetness. And that's what any little one loves.

The book is sweet and short, and exactly perfect for the intended age group. Little kids love nothing more than feeling the love of their parents, and this book lets that shine. The characters are fuzz balls...I think...and when Little One poofs, it's super cute. Readers will wish they could cuddle up with Little One themselves. 

It's a great book for a bedtime read or a snuggle in the chair and is one that keeps the message of love at the center. And kids never get enough of that. 

And here they are...
