Lots of Love is a book with a positive message - spread love to everyone you come in contact with throughout your day. The little girl pictured in the book starts by waking up with a happy outlook on the day, and then spreads love to dogs, her parents, her siblings, her classmates at school, and her teacher. She recognizes that God has given her many blessings and that she should show love to others, too.
Lots of Love is an upbeat book with a positive message - something we can all use more of.

And the message . . . it's all about love! In fact let me tell you my favorite verse and you will get a glimpse of the entire book's content.
"God fills my life with blessings.
He loves me through and through.
My heart is overflowing
And I want to show love too."
The story revolves around a little girl and how she gives and receives love throughout her day. It starts early in the morning as she wakes and greets the day cuddling with her puppy. She then moves on to her family and friends at preschool. Eventually she's back at home and finishes her day by expressing her thanks for the love she has given and been given.
This is a delightful way to reinforce that we are called to love one another. I think it would make a wonderful Valentine's Day gift but of course love is in style any time of year so it would make a great gift regardless of the occasion.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review. (Posted on 2/6/2017)

“Lots of Love” is a children’s fiction picture book, written by Kim Washburn. It has beautiful illustrations that are done by Jacqueline East. Because it is a board book, it is perfect for little ones.
This is a precious walk through a little girl’s day, looking at all who love her and who she loves, reminding her to thank God for all He has blessed her with.
I recommend this for any little girl, or for anyone who may read it to her.

Along with the whimsical rhythm and rhyme by the author are some really precious muted illustrations that accurately convey the authors words. This is the most perfect book for Valentine's day, any day really but for heart day it is perfect. God wants us to share the love He gives us with others so that they can grasp the full meaning of His love for them. Beautiful story!
